Hello, my name is Sara Beardsley, and I'm a senior architect with Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture. Today we're going to be looking at the construction of Willow Creek Community Church, which is a 72,000 square foot worship facility in Glenview, Illinois. There's two issues with placing the joints of the EIFS. So if you have any type of a movement joint in the material below the EIFS, you have to put that joint in the EIFS. The other reason you put joints is they need to apply it wet.

And if they have too large of an area and if the EIFS starts to get too dry, then the workers can't apply it fast enough to make the EIFS all work uniformly and get a good look it when they're finished. So you have to put a joint every so often, basically so the workers have a stopping point.
