Lecturer:  eng. Ciprian Popa 


Training description: 

In this course you will be presented the theory basics regarding curtain wall and what are the demands for them in seismic countries. The course is focused on practical design examples that you can follow along with the trainer. You will learn how to efficiently design steel, aluminium and glass elements connected within an unique 3D BIM Model. All training sessions will also be recorded and saved along with the presented materials.
