Pushing the (Building) Envelope: Case Studies & Best Practices 

Build better. Build smarter. Learn how analysis of architectural components will bring better value to your clients, your project, ad your understanding of how to meet a building envelope performance goal. Karen Ferguson, AIA, of VCBO will moderate a discussion with Roman Buys, PE (VBFA) and Rick Ziegler, PE (Morrison Hershfield.) Don't miss it!

Moderator
Karen Ferguson, Assoc. AIA - VCBO Architecture

As a diligent and detail-oriented project manager, Karen is an asset to the VCBO team. Having been with the firm since 1998, Karen’s expertise has been applied to a variety of project types, including healthcare facilities, municipal buildings, sports / recreation centers and educational spaces. Not only has Karen’s aptitude in historic preservation been recognized in Utah’s most notable restoration endeavor—the Utah State Capitol—but also, her vast expertise has aided in the successful completion of complex medical reconfigurations such as Intermountain Healthcare’s Alta View Hospital.  Because Karen is adept at overseeing quality control, code compliance and drawing / specification coordination, she continually reviews drawings and concepts through each stage of the design process, ensuring full coordination between VCBO and the engineers involved. Currently, Karen is a member of the ICC Code Council as well as a moderator of the AIA BEC Council where her specialization in building envelopes is highly valued.
