Don't Wait: A Canopy Prep Timeline
Monday, July 12, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT
Canopy systems are important additions to the building envelope, as well as providing a beautiful, unique aesthetic. Additionally, canopy systems require proper planning, knowledge, and a well-kept timeline. Architectural choices should drive the project, and as a result, the cost. In order to achieve the full environmental and green building benefits provided by a canopy system, all details must be worked out early and completely.
- Discuss canopy design elements, as well as attachment and structural needs in order to take control of the process and drive cost.
- Explain how proper canopy design determines the green building benefits such as reduction in energy usage, cost, and building emissions while promoting health and wellness.
- Address specific challenges in form and function and how to deal with those challenges in the early stages to avoid late-stage revisions and higher cost.
- Discuss when to use differing attachments, and how those choices affect the safety and structure of the wall surface as well as the environmental benefits of a canopy system.
