Building Envelope Fundamentals and Design Solutions with Insulated Metal Panels

Building Envelope Fundamentals and Design Solutions with Insulated Metal Panels

Discover how IMPs can help enhance the functionality of building, performance. You will gain a better understanding of the IMP’s constructability and physical properties, and its visual, and structural attributes, efficiencies, advantages and benefits for using IMP's in today’s design build world.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Discuss the advantages of designing with IMPs. Recognize how the IMP can offer the designer a solution for the building envelope, to resist varied and severe weather conditions, including fire safety, durability cost and energy efficiency. Understand jointed components.
  2. Identify cost savings and the efficiencies related to IMP installation in today’s competitive market.
  3. Identify how IMP's can open up building concepts to take advantage the IMP's easy systems and physical benefits, their ability to adapt to existing structures and turn-key buildings.
  4. Discuss how IMP’s can contribute to earning credits on LEED projects.
  5. Review projects where IMPs’ were able to create a tangible difference. Identifying and solving potential issues ahead of time, and providing solution driven options.
