Programme Highlight

Code of Practice for Structural Use of Glass was published in 2018 and fully implemented in February 2019. It involves considerable new techniques and considerations for design of glass used as structural elements. This seminar series is conducted by eminent speakers involved heavily with the drafting of the code with an objective to share the insight on the behavior, analysis and design of glass structures. It covers a wide range of knowledge from glass material, structural design of glass pane, application of laminated glass, glass connection, testing, measurement, practical consideration and quality control. The seminars are specially tailored for a full spectrum of glass and façade engineering-related professionals such as engineers, surveyors, architect, project managers, facility managers and technical personnel who interact frequently with glass and façade or have been practicing façade engineering works and would like to better equip themselves by taking a closer look at the latest glass and façade engineering knowledge through case studies.
