    PRESENTER: GLORIA RINALDI, BENJAMIN MOORE & CO

    The world of colour and design has been part of Gloria's career since graduating from Ryerson University in Fashion Merchandising, working in the Fashion industry for 11 years, designing clothing lines for major retailers across Canada and the US. As her family grew, she decided to streamline her creativity into Interior Design, starting a design business, working from home, while maintaining an active, design-focused career. After running her business for 16 years, Gloria became open to seeking out new challenges in her life. The transition to Benjamin Moore as their Architect and Designer Representative, and now as their Design Program Specialist, was a natural fit.
     

    FABRICS FOR PERFORMANCE SHADING: A NEW METHODOLOGY FOR DAYLIGHTING DESIGN
    10 - 11 a.m. | 1 IDCEC hour (HSW)

    This course is targeted towards specifiers and members of the design community to help better educate them on the effects that shade fabrics have on building performance. Today, fabrics are typically selected based on aesthetics and a designer’s past experience, which results in compromised energy savings and occupant comfort. Research is establishing that fabric properties, particularly the openness factor, visible transmittance, and solar reflectance, play a huge role in glare reduction, daylight autonomy, and view preservation. The key to maximizing energy savings and occupant comfort is finding the right balance between each project’s parameters and priorities. With the research, metrics, and data, this presentation will drive architects and designers to select fabric as a key component of the building performance system, as opposed to a furnishing. This new methodology will give the architectural community the ability to optimize the design of their shading system based on performance (glare, daylight, and view) and aesthetics.
