President's Message

January Luncheon and Technical Session on building enclosure commissioning and design of the building envelope was informative and challenging. Sara’s presentation included detail drawings and photos of actual in progress construction in an effort to highlight the effects of insufficient or unclear detailing. Sara also left attendees with a couple of recommendations.  Design teams should always include a couple of simple quality control requirements in their specifications.  Include requirements for the contractor to test installed storefronts and curtainwalls for water leakage per AAMA 501.2.  This test is non-destructive, simple to perform, and can be completed by the contractor without any third-party requirements.  Also include requirements for a sealant adhesion test per ASTM C1521.  This test is a simple and cost effective way to ensure weatherproofing sealants are properly installed and will remain in place.

CDT and Advanced Certifications– The exam window for the spring exams has been announced.  The CDT and advanced certification exams will be offered from March 27 through June 2, 2018.  Early registration has closed but standard registration is open through February 28, 2018.  If you are considering taking the CDT or any of the advanced certification exams be sure to take advantage of the standard registration pricing. 

February Luncheon - The next Chapter luncheon will be on February 12, 2018 at the Embassy Suites, 1000 Woodward Place NE.  Aaron Ketner and Luc Wing of Dekker/Perich/Sabatini will discuss Building Performance Analysis: Implementing the 2030 Challenge.  The goal of this presentation is to provide attendees with the know-how to successfully implement energy analysis into projects and build awareness about the AIA 2030 Commitment to achieve 100% carbon-neutral projects. In this session Aaron and Luc will share strategies on how individuals and teams can incorporate energy analysis into their design process which can contribute towards the LEED Integrative process credit. They will touch on the many software applications available for energy analysis with a focus on using BIM and Energy Simulation for reporting to the AIA DDx.

Board of Directors – The CSI Albuquerque chapter needs you!  The chapter currently has no president-elect which means there is no president for FY2019.  Without member volunteers beginning in July 2018 there will be no leadership for the chapter which means there will be no programs, seminars, or events which are the foundation of the chapter and where our members find the most value in CSI.  The next Albuquerque Chapter CSI Board of Directors Meeting will be February 15, 2017 at the offices of Dekker/Perich/Sabatini 7601 Jefferson NE, Suite 100, Albuquerque, NM 87109.  Members are always welcome!
