Description: This program discusses the most widely used commercial roofing membrane, TPO, along with another thermoplastic membrane, PVC. Similarities and differences in the production, installation, and performance of the materials will be explored. The presenter will also note the advantages of viewing a roofing assembly as a “system,” instead of just a membrane and its accessories, and provide guidance on how to choose the appropriate roofing system for a given building.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Gain an understanding of the overall commercial roofing market and how thermoplastic systems have become dominant
  2. Review the types and advantages of single ply thermoplastic roofing systems
  3. Select the appropriate system to meet a building owner’s needs
  4. Understand the importance of single-source roofing systems, system support, and roof warranty coverage

Through their BluePrint For Better Campaign and in conjunction with the Mayors Innovation Project, The American Institute of Architects (AIA) have offered 3 cities the opportunity to partner with architects from their local AIA chapter to tackle a local renovation with a reuse or retrofit challenge that aims to reduce environmental impact and equitably serve the surrounding community.

EASTPOINTE MARKETPLACE PROJECT OVERVIEW

Inspired by their new Rainbow Maker mural and Children's Garden, Eastpointe developed the idea of creating a multi-use public gathering space, creating opportunities for local artists and vendors, while enhancing the walkability of the DDA District and supporting local businesses.

With the help and expertise of AIA Detroit architects and city stakeholders, the City of Eastpointe is looking to design a permanent weekend market & event place, similar to a farmer’s market, in the large, city-owned parking lot between the Children’s Garden and the Library.

THE CHARRETTE

AIA Detroit is organizing a Charrette for virtual and in-person designers to get a better understanding of the project and help brainstorm ideas that the City will be able to use at a later time.

We are looking for YOUR expertise and vision. Attendees will do a walk-through of the site, go over project details, then split into groups based on different project goals:

  • Pedestrian connections & wayfinding
  • Green stormwater infrastructure integration
  • Market shade structures
  • Performance/event space

Join Enterprise Community Partners, Inc. and the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence for an exploration of the process of creating transformative urban development in America.

Have you ever looked at a high-impact community project and wondered “how’d they do that”? In this 90-minute webinar we will explore the process of creating transformative urban development including the essential role of leadership and vision. We’ll consider the value of a compelling vision, the process for creating one in collaboration with the community, and its impact on the project’s design and development.

OVERVIEW: We’ll begin our exploration with presentation and examination of case studies of award-winning projects and in-depth discussions with visionary developers who have succeeded in spite of long odds to create breakthrough developments. Then, participants will apply what they’ve learned with an interactive, in-class exercise that will provide a template for future work.
