EventsPassion Behind Design: Low Carbon Building Footprints
Friday, June 25 | 3:30 PM EDT
|Hosted by Walter P Moore and ACE Mentor|
Kelly Roberts, PE, SE, LEED AP BD+C
Everything that humans create has a footprint, a carbon footprint. And in structural engineering, our building’s footprints can be massive - they far outweigh our own personal footprints. Most of a building’s carbon footprint, or it’s embodied carbon, is contained in the materials structural engineers specify – in concrete, steel and wood building materials. For this reason, we have committed to do whatever we can to measure and then reduce embodied carbon on our projects. We fully believe there is something we can do on every project, every time and encourage our project teams to engage us in that challenge.
Innovating Multi-material Enclosures
Thursday, June 24 | 10:40 – 11:20 AM EDT
|Hosted by Facades+ Southeast|
Kais Al-Rawi, AIA
The proliferation of advanced engineering and fabrication techniques is pushing the limits of facade design, specifically that of multi-material enclosures. This panel will feature Niel Prunier and Manzer Mirkar from HKS, Kais Al-Rawi from Walter P Moore, and Dave Powell and Chris Davis from Hastings Architecture, who will explore the unique technical challenges and methods for designing and constructing large scale projects that use multiple cladding techniques or multiple interfaces. The projects they will present, Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles and the Bridge Building in Nashville, offer an opportunity to examine these techniques at different scales and place them in conversation. Such projects are increasingly prescient today with new standards for contemporary outdoor capacity demands and the call for materiality to speak to its contextual site.
