Course Description: AEC Daily: Achieving Green Building Standards with Sustainable Metal Coating Systems
ONGOING - 1 HOUR
Coil and extrusion coating systems are ideal for exterior architectural applications. They provide unique, sustainable, and durable protection for metal roof and wall panel systems. This course explains the different coating types and application methods and identifies how metal coatings can contribute to a building’s energy efficiency and mitigate the heat island effect. Living Building Challenge and LEED® programs are examined and compared, and various case studies are discussed.
Explain factory-applied coil and extrusion coating types and coating application methods.
Recall how to achieve green building standards through design and by meeting the requirements of the Living Building Challenge (LBC) and LEED® certification programs.
Identify how solar-reflective metal coatings improve energy efficiency and help mitigate the urban heat island effect.
Examine the differences between the Living Building Challenge and LEED v4.1 programs with regard to metal coatings.
