ABOUT THE SEMINAR

Expanding Our Understanding of Building Movement and Facade Joint Design
Presented by John A. Jackson, AIA, and Emily P. Appelbaum, P.E.

Joints within the building enclosure play a critical role in a facade’s overall performance and durability. Just like mechanical or electrical components, facade joints are vital parts of a building system – the enclosure system – and require thoughtful design. The design of facade joints must account for various construction tolerances and in-service building movements caused by temperature changes, occupancy loads, wind and seismic forces, and other phenomena to maintain the building enclosure’s air, water, and vapor continuity. In this presentation, we will explore the building movements and tolerances that affect facade joints and discuss how to appropriately design joints to accommodate them.

After attending this seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the various movements and tolerances that affect facade joints.
  • Understand how to combine movements and tolerances to design facade joints.
  • Describe the various types of facade joints.
  • Understand the process for sizing joints for various facade systems.


Participants will earn 1.0 AIA CES Learning Unit (LU/HSW) for their attendance. Attendance is free and open to all; please invite colleagues. We will serve refreshments and hors d'oeuvres. Space is limited to the first 100 guests to register.
