The Insulated Sandwich Panel - Composition/BIM & Install Design (Presented by AIA)

13 Jun 2024
Theatre One

When it comes to design and construction in today's world there are many options to consider and, in this seminar, participants will expand their understanding on Insulated Sandwich Panel (ISP), how the manufacturing processes differ and how this in turn results in different properties for each panel type. This presentation will identify the key quality control measures in this process, the Australian Standards and other controls applicable to the end products.

At the end of this presentation, you should be able to: 

  • Explain the different manufacturing processes and quality assurance aspects for ISP ​

  • Articulate why PIR chemistry is different and how it assists performance​

  • Identify BIM options with ISP and a ready reckoner for NCC fire compliance​

  • Assess site requirements for delivery, storage, handling of ISP​

  • Explain installation essentials for a range of install types – such as FRL, FM Approved, Temperature Controlled Environments and IPCA Code of Practice

This presentation will deliver outcomes related to the following Competency/s from the National Standard of Competency for Architects 2021: ​

 Be able to draw on knowledge from building sciences and technology, environmental sciences and behavioural and social sciences as part of preliminary design research and when developing the conceptual design to optimise the performance of the project​

; Be able to integrate the material selection, structural and construction systems established in the conceptual design into the detailed design and documentation. ​

PC43; Be able to collaborate with nominated contractors early in the documentation process to identify key construction methodology opportunities and constraints. ​

​PC45; Be able to nominate and integrate quality and performance standards with regard to selected materials, finishes, fittings, components and systems, considering the impact on Country and the environment, and the whole life carbon impact of the project. This includes integrating life cycle assessments and other expertise and advice from consultants. ​

​PC46; Be able to produce project documentation that meets the requirements of the contract and procurement process and complies with regulatory controls, building standards and codes, and conditions of construction and planning approvals.
