Last Wednesday Lunch & Learns - Live Webinars with Torti Gallas + Partners


Live Webinar with Torti Gallas + Partners

AIAPV has partnered with Torti Gallas + Partners to offer a limited number of seats for live webinars of the firm's Lunch & Learn CEU events on the last Wednesday of each month. AIA credits will be reported by the presenting vendors. Registration through AIAPV is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. Registrants will receive the Go To Meeting log in credentials the day before the webinar.  

AIAPV appreciates Torti Gallas' support in enabling the chapter to provide this valuable benefit for the convenience of members unable to get to our educational events in person.

[Replacement presentation for the previously scheduled Composite Structures]

Course Description

This AIA-certified continuing education course focuses on the science behind thermal bridging at steel connections and the solutions available to address it. 

Following a brief overview of where thermal bridging can occur, the presenter will address modern building design and standards that make this issue more important now than ever. Building codes relating to continuous insulation will be discussed – both current and future trends that impact building envelope design.

Attendees will also expand their knowledge of thermal modeling and the factors that affect thermal performance. The presenter will review all possible solutions to thermal bridging at steel connections, including the benefits and potential drawbacks for each.
