Aside from the aesthetic aspects of a building, performance criteria is also a crucial consideration in many architectural designs. Join us for an insightful session, where speakers from the coated steel and roofing solution industries converge to provide an overview of the design requirements & performance criteria for different building types. We will begin by delving into material basics such as key concepts in steel thicknesses, performance comparison of different types of coated steel, paint performance, and demonstrating real-world case studies in durability and aesthetic potentials.
In addition, we will dive into architecture design requirements by providing valuable insights on customising roofing system designs to fulfill thermal and acoustic performance criteria through elaborating on the gazettement of UBBL By-Law 38A and Sound Transmission Class (STC) Rating requirement for different building types such as electronic & electrical factories, data centers, warehouses, and manufacturing plants.
