As architects retrofit, expand existing, or design new hospitals, medical facilities, and educational campuses, they work to achieve a necessary balance between form and aesthetics within budgetary constraints. Today, there’s a complicated landscape of codes, requirements, and options to navigate. A key part of designing safe facilities is choosing the right mix of protective, structural and decorative glass to meet safety requirements while improving the health and welfare of building occupants and users such as staff, patients, teachers, and students.  This course offers an analysis of the latest innovations and trends in fire‐rated, x‐ray radiation, security and decorative glazings and how they can be used in architectural design. Attendees will learn about required building codes, testing standards, and ratings, plus how to work with glass manufacturers to achieve practical and aesthetic design objectives.
