of Practice for Structural Use of Glass was published in 2018 and fully
implemented in February 2019. It involves considerable new techniques and
considerations for design of glass used as structural elements. This seminar
series is conducted by eminent speakers involved heavily with the drafting of
the code with an objective to share the insight on the behavior, analysis and
design of glass structures. It covers a wide range of knowledge from glass
material, structural design of glass pane, application of laminated glass,
glass connection, testing, measurement, practical consideration and quality
control. The seminars are specially tailored for a full spectrum of glass and
façade engineering-related professionals such as engineers, surveyors,
architect, project managers, facility managers and technical personnel who
interact frequently with glass and façade or have been practicing façade
engineering works and would like to better equip themselves by taking a closer
look at the latest glass and façade engineering knowledge through case studies.
