Why Did the Waterproofing Fail?
Sponsored By Noble Company
Presented By James Medina
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

This course evaluates the reasons that lead to failures of waterproofing installations. It examines product attributes that lead to successful installations and identifies the ways to identify necessary characteristics. Also compares installation methods and identifies ways to specify successful installations.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Review common waterproofing products, installation methods, and building code compliance.
  2. Understand the relationship of movement in the surface and substrate to waterproofing.
  3. Understand reasons for failures in waterproofing installations under tile and the relationship of failed waterproofing to durability and Sustainable Design.
  4. Understand permeation and its impact on creating suitable water and vapor barriers for tile installations and the relationship of permeation to Indoor Air Quality.

Managing Condensation, Water Intrusion, and Energy in the Real World
Sponsored By PROSOCO
Presented By Alley Mathson
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

Window-opening air and water leakage has been a difficult problem for the construction industry. This course evaluates building failures, conventional construction approaches, and new developments in waterproofing techniques to show a path forward for designers seeking higher-performing wall assemblies.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Explain why job-site conditions should be used as systems engineering requirements in construction product development.
  2. Compare and contrast the similarities and differ-ences between silicone, urethane, and STPE sealants.
  3. Describe the multi-step weatherproofing process of conventional window installation and how such installations fare in real-world testing conditions.
  4. Explain new window weatherproofing techniques using liquid flashing membranes.
  5. Instruct others on construction defect remediation using STPE technology through case-study examples.

Rooftop Snow Retention Solving the Mystery with the Facts
Sponsored By TRA Snow & Sun
Presented By Mindy Dahlquist
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

This course provides a review of the problems and solutions associated with snow and ice moving on roofs, particularly in heavy snow accumulation areas. It also provides in depth training on the proper engineering and installation of snow retention systems.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Realize that standards or codes covering snow retention systems do not exist.
  2. Recognize the common hazards and challenges caused when snow moves on a roof.
  3. Visualize the disadvantages of some everyday solutions to snow difficulties.
  4. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of a few roof design practices used as potential solutions.
  5. Know if different roofing types are effective solutions.
  6. Understand how modern snow retention systems work.
  7. List the factors to be considered in the proper engineering of snow retention devices.
  8. Briefly explain how to eliminate ice dams with ventilation, insulation, and snow retention.

Presented By Marcus Ward
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

In this one-hour course, design professionals will gain practical knowledge of sound control and the many health and safety benefits it has for architects, builders, and occupants. It will discuss building code criteria and guidelines, including strategies to meet these requirement through various methods.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Discuss how sound control can help reduce noise pollution, sleep disturbances, litigation costs and privacy issues for building occupants and owners
  2. Review building code criteria and guidelines including the International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC) to address sound control issues that affect building occupants
  3. Describe sound control strategies to alleviate noise-induced sound damage by utilizing mass, decoupling, absorption, acoustical sealant, and other design methods
  4. Examine sound control design methods for walls and floors using sustainable, mold-resistant fiberboards made from recycled materials
