Fall PD Series | Prefabricated Façade Systems: Taller Wood Buildings, Lower Carbon

November 18 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Prefabricated Façade Systems: Taller Wood Buildings, Lower Carbon” is part of the Fall 2021 Professional Development Series.

Prefabricated façade systems for larger and taller wood buildings are on the cutting edge of low-carbon, low-energy design. How have these systems evolved and what opportunities do they present?

This presentation will share insights from early and recently completed buildings, research and prototyping work, and façade systems currently under design. Attendees will learn how prefabricated mass timber facades—today and in the future—can achieve carbon and energy goals while meeting stringent fire and durability requirements.

Presenter: Graham Finch MASc, P.Eng., Principal, Senior Building Science Specialist, RDH Building Science
Graham Finch is a building science engineer who specializes in enclosure design, risk management, research, and investigation work for new and existing buildings. Graham also works with building product manufacturers and other clients on product research and development, and the creation of various industry guidelines and training initiatives. Graham is directly involved with the majority of RDH’s mass timber and high-rise wood building projects and instrumental in leading related industry research, risk management, and façade development. As a result of this experience, he is regularly invited by various organizations and clients to speak to the practical and technical issues of mass timber façade design and construction.
