  • Today’s building designs demand reliable building envelopes coupled with pleasing aesthetics. This course discusses how innovations in custom and specialty finishes on MCM panels now mean that the limitation is your imagination. In particular, we look at the use of anodizing, natural metals such as zinc, and organic coatings. The course also covers applicable standards and specifications for using these finishes.

  • Nonsequential panel systems can keep your project on schedule and under budget while maintaining unique design aesthetics. This course shows how the cost of metal building façades can be minimized by using a nonsequential panel installation system. Metal composite material (MCM) cladding and its use in rainscreen systems is discussed, as well as common design pitfalls that can compromise the watertightness of the building envelope.
