Crawford Tracey Corporation Offers New AIA CES CourseAugust 4th, 2010 | Category: Industry News
Crawford Tracey Corporation (CTC), a Florida glazing contractor specializing in unitized and pre-glazed curtainwall, announced it has been approved as an AIA/CES provider. The company’s first course, “Glazing Design for High Velocity Wind Zone Areas” is free to Florida architects by contacting the company and requesting a “Lunch & Learn” appointment.
The new course is designed to help architects understand wind load and wind-borne debris requirements for glazing systems in high velocity hurricane zones. It also covers information about product approvals, specifications, performance features and design options for glazing systems in these areas. Architects who participate in the course will receive one hour of Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) AIA/CES credit.
“Designing with glass in hurricane zones has a special set of design considerations and product requirements,” says Ray Crawford, chief executive officer of Crawford Tracey. “This course will help architects and specifiers understand what the requirements are and how they can use glass to meet and exceed codes and client expectations.”
