The IIBEC Gulf Coast Chapter is pleased to announce our June meeting of 2022. The meeting will include two presentations. Additionally, an outlook of the chapter business going into Q3 of 2022 will be discussed.
Sam Mills (Kingspan Light + Air), will present on Effective Daylighting Design Techniques and Methods
The use of natural daylight to illuminate buildings has been an effective part of architectural design over the years. Daylit buildings have provided a positive impact in the green construction industry and have enhanced occupant health, safety and welfare (HSW).
Lack of daylighting in a building can affect our natural body clock, our circadian rhythm, and cause us to feel fatigue and be less productive. On the other hand, proper exposure to natural light is stimulating.
This course provides an update on how effective daylighting design techniques and methods are improving working conditions from a Health, Safety, & Welfare (HSW) perspective.
Marc O’Brien (W.R. Meadows of Texas) will present on Controlling Air Leakage and Moisture Movement: Air Barrier Detailing
This presentation will present the following objectives for reviewing air barrier systems and why they are important to a building’s energy
savings; identifying difficult air barrier details in various types of building envelope construction; reviewing installation and applications
of liquid and membrane air barriers around rough openings, corners, building joints, and junctions of different materials; and illustrate methods that save time or improve application and installation.

Mr. Mills, Director of Sales, Skylights for Kingspan Light + Air has 15 years of construction industry experience. Originating from the construction side prior to shifting his career to the manufacturing side of the industry. His role is to support the Light + Air division for Kingspan across North America. His drive is to enlighten marketplace stakeholders of the daylighting benefits for both occupants and owners by implementing proper daylighting design.

Marc O’Brien (W.R. Meadows of Texas)
Fresh from Ireland, Mr. O’Brien started in manufacturing by working with tile contractors, suppliers, custom home builders and production builders. After attending a building science seminar, it immediately grabbed his interest and it wasn’t long before he knew that the building enclosure industry was what really interested him.
Every project whether it’s a new or restoration project, has a unique story and a different set of requirements which he finds incredibly rewarding as well as providing opportunities to learn. He is one of those who cannot help but say to family and friends every time he drives by a previous project, “I remember working on that building”.
Outside of work, golf, teaching his daughter tennis and the occasional cold beverage at an Irish establishment is how he unwinds
Lunch will be provided between presentations.
Attendance at this Gulf Coast Chapter sponsored seminar qualifies attendees for continuing education/learning units as approved by IIBEC.
