Schöck Webinars.Education delivered to your desktop.

At Schöck North America, we bring building products education right to your doorstep. We offer in-person and online CE courses for architectural firms, engineering firms, developers and contractors, and educational webinars, which are open to individuals anywhere in North America.

Our webinars focus primarily on the use of structural thermal breaks in concrete and steel construction, with region-specific information on building code compliance and green certifications. Some webinars also cover punching shear reinforcement, shear dowels, glass fiber reinforcement and façade systems.

Many of our webinars are AIA and AIBC accredited courses and can be counted towards your annual CE requirement. All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion.

We invite you to join us for one of our upcoming webinars and look forward to your participation.

Upcoming Webinars

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand how, why and where thermal bridging occurs
  2. Identify the three main problems caused by thermal bridging
  3. Discuss the pros and cons of different approaches to addressing the problem
  4. Know how, when and why to use structural thermal breaks

Concrete slabs that project through the building envelope, such as those used in the construction of balconies and parapets, break the insulation layer and create thermal bridging. Incorporating a thermal break within structural elements significantly improves the thermal performance of building envelopes and helps avoid costly issues down the road.

Course is one hour in length. See registration page for full course details.

  5. How building codes throughout Canada are evolving and what it means for you.

Concrete slabs that project through the building envelope, such as those used in the construction of balconies and parapets, break the insulation layer and create thermal bridging. Incorporating a thermal break within structural elements significantly improves the thermal performance of building envelopes and helps avoid costly issues down the road. This session will be geared towards Canadian professionals, discussing province-specific codes and considerations.
