Designing for Resilience: Hurricane Protection

September 14, 2020

Designing for Resilience: Hurricane Protection

Every September, National Preparedness Month reminds us that disaster can strike at any time and how important it is to be prepared for when it does. And that means having a strong, dependable structure able to withstand damaging winds, flying debris, and other destructive forces. The built environment is often a community’s first line of defense against natural disasters, and is not only relied upon for protection, but also for preservation.

For additional protection on your next project, Major Industries’ Guardian 275® Translucent Systems - approved for use in most Florida counties, the Texas Gulf Coast and more than 95% of the hurricane zones in North America - can be configured to provide unmatched protection from the elements while allowing glare-free natural light to illuminate building interiors.

Daylighting Applications: Water Treatment Plants

The privacy and savings provided by translucent panel systems make them a strategic solution for daylighting water treatment plants, pump stations, and other municipal facilities that house large equipment. By limiting views of the building’s interior from the outside, translucent daylighting keeps the facility and its equipment private and protected from trespassers who are unable to see who or what is inside. This added security may be especially important for pump stations or other buildings that are frequently left unattended.

Glass house with load-bearing timber curtainwalls

Glass house with load-bearing timber curtainwalls

Architect Jerome Engelking was engaged to create a nature-infused vacation retreat for a growing family on a wooded property on Long Island, NY – an architectural space that was to be a natural extension of the landscape. 

His mandate was challenging. The house had to be open, yet private. Warm and natural, but with daylighting and heat controls. Stylish, yet exceedingly functional. Modern, but with an organic aesthetic. And it had to have wood framing that would support the roof structure – a very unique architectural feature. All in all, a tall order!

Sustainable architecture: how to help prevent bird strikes

In fact, one of every ten adult breeding birds succumb in this manner, and because 100 eggs are usually needed to produce one adult breeding bird, that’s like losing 100 birds each time one adult breeding strikes a building.

The daylighting difference: student health & learning

The daylighting difference: student health & learning

Children need sunlight; and because most children and adolescents spend the majority of their daylight hours in school, it’s important that students have access to sunlight by incorporating daylighting systems into classroom design. Exposure to natural light not only contributes to a student’s physical well-being by boosting their daily intake of Vitamin D, but also enriches their mental health by regulating the Circadian Rhythm and the release of influential hormones that, for adolescents in particular, can be difficult to manage on their own. Studies show these students sleep better, think more positively, concentrate longer, and miss fewer days of school due to illness. Studies also show that happier, healthier children perform better academically; and by diffusing daylight through halls and classrooms, schools can improve test scores, support student well-being, reallocate saved energy costs for school supplies and other needs, and promote sustainability.
