ABOUT THE SEMINAR

A Perfect Fit: Custom Curtain Wall Design
presented by Scott N. Bondi, Ph.D., P.E., Staff Consultant
Custom glazing systems have become more prevalent in recent years, driven by designers aiming to achieve a certain form or to integrate architectural features into these systems. Designing custom glazing systems, such as structural glass walls or unitized curtain walls, is a complex task that varies widely from project to project, depending on the architectural goals and constraints. As with standard systems, designers often first consider performance criteria such as wind loads, wind-driven rain resistance, and thermal performance. In addition, there are fabrication limits, which include suppliers’ glazing options. This session examines the process of facade design for custom glazing projects from start to finish.


After attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Understand important factors to consider when designing a glazed system.
  • Identify the analytical steps required for designing a custom glazed system.
  • Discern the challenges and fabrication limits that exist for oversized glazing units.
  • Recognize the important aspects of documenting the design of custom glazing systems.


Participants will earn
1.0 AIA CES Learning Unit (LU/HSW) for their attendance.
