Glass Expo Southeast™ Offers AIA Course on Glazing System Design

In January, architects and glazing professionals attending Glass Expo Southeast (GESE) should take note of “Glazing System Delegated Design,” one of two AIA-accredited Learning Units offered at this inaugural event. This course will provide attendees with a detailed understanding of architectural intent, building structural movement, manufactured system limitations, and design loads and methods.

You should attend this session if you are an architect, engineer, builder or glazing contractor that must be aware of essential key design requirements and what to look for and approve in delegated design submittals for curtainwall, storefront and other glazing systems.

Presenter Stewart Jeske, founder and president of JEI Structural Engineering, has deep knowledge in this area. He owns four patents, two of which are associated with facade system support, and is a regular continuing education presenter in glazing systems design.

“We will be taking an in-depth look at one of the most misunderstood and overlooked areas in glazing system design,” says Stewart.

Stewart will see that the four key objectives are covered:

  1. Learn about types of manufactured glazing systems and their limitations.
  2. Know the importance of delegated design to consider building structural movement.
  3. Understand design requirements for structural glass and limitations.
  4. Know some important overlooked areas and what is not working in the delegated design process.

GESE is for industry leaders working with glass and metal to expand their knowledge and improve their craft by accessing great education close to home. To see GESE’s complete educational program, click here.
