Supporting design professionals’ industry knowledge and development, Tubelite offers a new continuing education course, “FORWARD FACING: Innovations that are Moving Building Enclosure Design, Fabrication, Installation, and Performance in Bold New Directions,” available now in the September issue of Architectural Record and online Continuing Education Center.

The course is approved by the American Institute of Architects’ Continuing Education System (AIA/CES) for one Learning Unit in health, safety and welfare (1.0 HSW LU).

Those who complete the course will learn about the aesthetics, performance, sustainability, resilience and life cycle benefits of innovative building enclosures, including storefront and curtainwall systems. Specific educational objectives include:

  1. Identify and recognize the significance of building enclosure and façade components in both the design and performance of buildings.
  2. Assess the performance aspects of exterior wall and fenestration systems as they relate to code compliance, energy performance, durability and sustainability.
  3. Explain the importance of proper design and construction techniques to help assure that systems perform as intended.
  4. Determine ways to incorporate the principles presented into specific building projects as shown in case studies.
