AIA

Tiffany Coppock, AIA, is the commercial building systems specialist at Owens Corning where she provides leadership in building science, system development, testing, and documentation. As new systems transition into use, and for existing systems and products, she provides technical guidance integrating the entire building envelope for design professionals as well as Owens Corning teams. Formerly, Tiffany was a building science manager answering technical questions on hundreds of projects, reviewing drawings and specifications, and presenting educational sessions. Prior to manufacturing, Tiffany worked several years at an architecture firm in Durham, N.C., designing healthcare and preservation projects. She is a registered architect with specialization in healthcare and historic preservation. Tiffany is also a former CSI leader and voting member on several ASTM committees. To remain relevant and give back to the industry, she volunteers her expertise on pro-bono healthcare design projects and is a member of the Dallas AIA’s Disaster Assistance Trained team. She recently rescued her mom’s childhood home, an 1893 Craftsman/Queen Anne stunner, and now spends weekends restoring it while documenting the process online.

Responding to Climate Change (Resilience Series Course 3)

Designing and building climate adaptive buildings is not a choice—it’s an imperative. This course explores the major obstacles—and opportunities—that climate change poses for architects. On the one hand, short and long-term risks to the built environment are evolving with climate change. On the other, buildings are major carbon producers. Thus, architects must be part of the solution; designing buildings that both adapt to climate impacts and mitigate global warming. This course shows you how with an interactive approach to exploring data, innovative design strategies, and case studies that highlight how building design can adapt to—and even slow—climate change.

Codes and Rating Systems for Resilience (Resilience Series Course 4)

Building codes are designed to protect people; and thus building to code may not provide the level of property protection your clients want. This in-depth course offers a solution. You’ll learn how to unpack the level of protection building codes offer so you can best identify—and design for—resilience gaps. Through case studies and expert interviews, you’ll review how recent advances are reducing vulnerability, including lessons learned from past disasters, stretch codes, and performance-based codes. You’ll also review the full scope and limitations of the building code and how codes address the impacts of potential hazards for any region. Finally, you’ll learn how rating systems can complement, reinforce, or extend the provisions of local codes.

Conducting Vulnerability Assessments (Resilience Series Course 5)

Learn how to conduct vulnerability assessments in new and existing buildings using a step-by-step process to make informed decisions about retrofits, renovations, and repairs to reduce damage from any hazard.

The course begins with an overview of vulnerability concepts and terminology, defining the link between vulnerability and potential damage to existing or new buildings. Its main focus, however, is guiding architects through a 10-step all-hazards vulnerability assessment methodology that has been developed, tested, and used by experts in architecture and design. Using a case study and real examples, this course shows you how to apply each step in the process. By the end of the course, you’ll be able to conduct a building vulnerability assessment with your design team, leverage that assessment to inform your hazard mitigation strategy, and be confident about the benefits of incorporating resilient design features into your projects.
