Glass as a Structural Material, Implications for Architectural Freedom and Safe Design  

Richard Green

Richard Green is a Principal and Owner of Green Facades LLC. is a global expert in the area of facades and structural glass and his expertise encompasses all stages of building enclosures life-cycle. Richard's specially is the design and analysis of the complex façade structures. He has been involved with a number of world leading and award-winning projects covering a wide range of building types. He is the technical chair for the ASTM Structural Glass Committee and has an advisory role to Eurocode EC11.
Damage to glass more often than not occurs due to events other than design loading. The concepts of redundancy, retention and residual capacity will be discussed to increase the safe use of glass by preventing collapse, fall out and continuing to perform vital roles after damage due to non-design events. The recommendations include in-service, partially damaged state and fully fractured state.

Thank you to our PSC CSI Sponsor!
Wishing you a joyous 2022 from all of us at Applied Building Information LLC.  If your 2022 goals include specifications for your project, product or practice we look forward to hearing from you. 

  • When the dust settles, the success of your project depends a lot on the specifications. It often boils down to how well the project delivered what the Owner wanted. They may want all the materials to be local to the region or made in the United States. They may want to earn specific Living Building Challenge petals. Whatever it is, ABI translates these goals into construction documents so that their dream can be constructed.
  • We’re different because we support your project as a team. We work collaboratively using consistent processes, common masters, and common project management tools. We have redundancy and flexibility so that we have a backup plan when emergencies arise. We provide an extraordinary level of expertise and management that contributes to your project’s success.
Thank you to the SeaBEC Sponsor!
