In response to the increasing demand for information about the benefits of building with metal for commercial projects, The Metal Initiative (TMI) is sponsoring complimentary informational webinars in October and November.
“The Metal Initiative is committed to promoting the use of metal in the commercial building industry,” says Scott Kriner, Technical Director, LEED AP, The Metal Initiative. “Today’s building owners and facility managers are faced with many choices of products and decisions about systems to install. TMI’s webinar series explains many of the current issues related to how metal roofs and walls can be considered for building envelope components.”
While a first webinar, held in September, focused on “Metal Roofs and Walls: From (A)luminum to (Z)inc,” there’s still time to sign up for the second and third in the series.
The topic on Wednesday, October 14, is “Retrofit Roofs and Walls.” It covers the hot topic of retrofit projects. By the end of this presentation, participants will:
• have fundamental knowledge of metal roof and wall systems used to retrofit buildings
• recognize various applications of retrofit metal roof and wall systems
• be apprised of the roof and wall issues that retrofit metal can resolve
• better understand the overall benefits when using metal systems on existing buildings
• be more familiar with the opportunities to save energy with these applications
Rounding out the series is “Building Green,” Wednesday, November 18. Participants will go away with a better understanding of how metal roofs and walls can:
• Reduce energy consumption in buildings
• Improve air quality and thermal comfort
• Help comply with energy codes
• Reduce environmental impacts
• Contribute to LEED points
All webinars will be held be 2 pm ET, 1 pm CT, and 11 am PT; and all presentations provide AIA/CES credits.
