Timber, Glass & NAFS: Architects Guide to NAFS & Curtain Wall Windows on Timber Frame Buildings

Hosted by Roy Manion, BC Wood is pleased to offer BC architects a series of unique hands on seminars, demonstrations and workshops each given by experts in their respective fields.  Local experts will explain and demonstrate creative solutions for integrating glass and timber into structures and provide insights into the regulations governing this work.  Attendees will garner working knowledge of a Hybrid Wood Curtain Wall Window System manufactured locally and North American Fenestration Standard (NAFS) regulations governing these systems.

An interactive demonstration of heavy timber and curtain wall assembly, including a live demonstration of an air and water test on an assembled unit to determine the Performance Grade measure, and a tour of UBC's Wood Sciences Lab will follow the seminars.
