As design professionals, Architects and Engineers focus intensively on the design and construction process, with special attention to materials and products. Join us for an exploration of the long service life that follows, and how buildings can be affected by routine operations and maintenance, extreme events and deteriorations.

2 LU|HSW

Learning objectives:

  1. Identify categories of extreme events that can affect buildings and structures, and approaches for mitigating the effects of these hazards.
  2. Identify deterioration mechanisms that can affect long-term building performance.

  3. Understand how the responsibility to protect health, safety, and welfare relates to the desire to mitigate property loss.

  4. Glean lessons from actual failure case studies to understand how seemingly minor changes and oversights in the design and construction process can substantially affect building performance.

  5. Understand how the study of building performance and pathology informs ongoing revision of codes, standards, and guidelines.

Presenter: Michael J. Drerup, P.E., LEED AP / Drerup Building Performance Engineering, PLLC
