QUEEN'S CHAPTER MEETING: Thursday, November 17th

This month's presentation is:

Daylighting and Glare Control for Advanced Building Facade Performance

Presented by Sam Missimer, LEED-AP, SAME, of Advanced Glazing, LTD

Mr Missimer will introduce new techniques for LEED and Net Zero envelope delivery on both new and retrofit projects including the Solara fully-custom IGU system which uses computer modeling to assign custom optical properties, allowing harvesting of full-spectrum, glare-free daylight deep into occupied spaces. As a translucent, Solera can then incorporate aerospace material, aerogel - allowing unprecedented levels of thermal and acoustical insulation - as high as R25 and OITC 38.

Lecture is 1 PDH
