Daylighting and Sustainable Design

Topics discussed include the origins of translucent daylighting with the structural sandwich panel, considerations in design, enhancement of daylighting techniques, real energy conservation, the eight systems, and opportunities offered in contrast, design, form and aesthetics. The benefits of diffused natural daylighting on performance, health, productivity, safety and sustainable design are emphasized. Specialty performance systems including explosion venting, blast resistant, hurricane impact and OSHA fall through protection is included.

Learning Objectives
