The first course is Managing Daylight with Automated Solar Control. This course explores the advantages of using automated window shades to reduce solar heat gain and maximize daylighting. The second new continuing education course is Managing Heat and Light with Exterior Shading Systems. Exterior window treatments are the most effective for reducing heat gain in a building. This course examines the exterior window treatment options, and the advantages and disadvantages of each type.
Both courses are available either in person, or online through Architectural Record’s Continuing Education center. You can learn more about both, and Draper’s other AIA continuing education courses on our website at .
