CSC Calgary examines structural glass

The next luncheon meeting of CSC’s Calgary Chapter, held on Wednesday, April 26, will be a special glass-focused gathering co-hosted by the Alberta Building Envelope Council (ABEC) and the Glass and Architectural Metals Association (GAMA).

The event takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Winston Club (formerly the Calgary Elks Lodge and Golf Club). Andrew Crosby, P. Eng.

Designs employing structural glass allow for breathtaking structures and façades free of aluminum or steel reinforcement. Key points of the presentation include:

  • overview of structural glass
  • discussion on the principles of structural glass
  • highlight of current structural glass design codes
  • design process and applications.
