Elevating Your Flexible Space Design
1st of 2 Courses | Oct. 24 | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM | In Person | Free  

In this seminar, design professionals, general contractors, owners or facility managers will gain a thorough understanding of the top 5 challenges inherent flexible spaces and be shown examples of how address them. 

Learning Objectives

  • Learn about the common challenges when designing flexible space such as acoustical performance, structural deflection, optimizing usable space, life safety, and health wellness post pandemic
  • To understand the advantages & disadvantages of various solutions in terms of sound isolation, support structure requirements, egress, and space utilization
  • To explore the impact to client’s budget and how others saved cost and created long term value for the end user.
  • To discover how upward thinking solutions can enhance both architectural & user performance with real world examples

CE Credits

Using 3D Scanning to Enhance Building Design + Construction
2nd of 2 Courses | Nov. 28 | 12:15 PM – 1:15 PM | In Person | Free

Traditional methods of generating an existing building survey can pose safety threats, with a need for physical on-site data collection.  3D scanning technology allows for safe, accurate and efficient data collection, limiting the risk of work zone safety threats.  Course participants will gain insight into how 3D Laser, LiDAR and drone scanning technology can support the proper evaluation of existing buildings and roofs, and capture details and data to initiate the building design and construction phases. In addition, this course will explore the value of using this technology on aging, damaged, and/or complicated structures, and address common questions and misconceptions related to the use of 3D scanning.

Learning Objectives

  • Attendees will learn how using 3D scanning technology to capture data and document existing conditions can mitigate the health and safety risk of exposing project teams to unsafe conditions and hard-to-reach areas, often present with aging, damaged, and/or complicated structures.
  • Attendees will understand the capabilities of 3D Laser and LiDAR scanning cameras, including FAA-compliant drones, and how the data they collect can help to improve accuracy and reduce the risk of costly errors during existing building renovations.
  • Attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of how 3D scanning technology can improve stakeholder collaboration and communication that helps architects and owners make informed decisions and enhance building performance, safety, and sustainability.
  • Attendees will review real-world case studies that illustrate how drones and 3D scanning technology have been utilized to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the local community and building occupants.
