Our Courses

* All MASA courses are AIA accredited and carry 1 AIA LU/HSW credit

The Only Canopy Course You’ll Ever Need
AIA 6120.7.2022
1 AIA HSW credit

This course provides a detail-oriented, full-scope plan for integrating canopy and sunshade solutions into the greater building project.

The discussion emphasizes implementing best-practice methods and specification of canopy and sun control devices to gain expert function, maximum sustainability, and  state-of-the-art design.

Knowledge gained through the completion of this course will provide vital project know-how, resulting in a streamlined planning process and future projects that are designed specifically for each individual building.

Mastering Daylight
AIA 6120.6.2021; GBCI 0920024455
1 AIA HSW credit; 1 GBCI credit

This course discusses the benefits of a thoughtfully-designed light control system and how to make it work for your project’s daylighting and design needs.

The discussion emphasizes implementing best-practice methods and specification of daylighting canopy and sun shade systems to create unique and aesthetically-pleasing architectural building enhancements.

The result will be a full-scope view on successfully repurposing natural light for greater environmental, human health, and aesthetic function.

Where Sustainability Meets Innovation
AIA 6120.5.2020; GBCI 0920023125
1 AIA HSW credit; 1 GBCI credit

This course discusses the impact of buildings on the natural environment and offers insight on designing to minimize those impacts. The discussion emphasizes implementing design methods including specification of technologies such as sun shade and daylighting canopy systems, as well as materials that contain recycled content. Designing as part of a holistic building environment is critical to optimizing energy performance and reducing extraction of natural resources for building materials. LEED credits associated with specifying aluminum sun shade systems are also discussed.

Don’t’ Wait: A Canopy Prep Timeline
AIA 6120.4.2019
1 AIA HSW credit

Canopy systems are important additions to the building envelope, as well as providing a beautiful, unique aesthetic. Additionally, canopy systems require proper planning, knowledge, and a well-kept timeline. Architectural choices should drive the project, and as a result, the cost. In order to achieve the full environmental and green building benefits provided by a canopy system, all details must be worked out early and completely. In this program we’ll discuss the importance of knowledge in the planning stages for canopy systems, which includes stylistic and structural elements. We will also discuss structure, attachment, drainage, and other vital operational considerations.
