Canopy systems are important additions to the building envelope, as well as providing a beautiful, unique aesthetic. Additionally, canopy systems require proper planning, knowledge, and well-kept timeline. Architectural choices should drive the project, and as a result, the cost. In order to achieve the full environmental and green building benefits provided by a canopy system, all details must worked out early and completely.

In this program we'll discuss the importance of knowledge in the planning stages for canopy systems, which includes stylistic and structural elements. We will also discuss structure, attachment, drainage, and other vital operational considerations.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Discuss canopy design elements, as well as attachments and structural needs in order to take control of the process and drive cost.
  2. Explain how proper canopy design determines the green building benefits such as reduction in energy usage, costs, and building emissions while promoting health and wellness.
  3. Address specific challenges in form and function and how to deal with those challenges in the early stages to avoid late-stage revisions and higher project costs.
  4. Discuss when to use differing attachments, an dhow those choices affect the safety and structure of the wall as the environmental benefits of a canopy system.
