LUNCH5 - All About Snow & Ice on Buildings

23 May 2018 11:30 AM - 1:00PM


1.5 ConEd Hours Learning 

Snow is so pervasive for Canadians that we accept the pleasures and the challenges it creates, often without a second thought. Whether we’re clearing snow from our driveways or skiing in serene settings, it is part of our lives. At Gradient Wind, we investigate snow and ice topics with a deeper level of curiosity and understanding. In this presentation, we share our knowledge of snow and ice, how it influences architectural design and building operations, how to protect people, and how to avoid damage to building components. We discuss snow and ice falling off buildings, snow loading on delicate structures and mitigation strategies for some of its worst effects.
