Crafting Culinary Spaces: Exploring Kitchen Cabinet Construction, Finishes, and Uses
Sponsored By Wolf Home Products
Presented By Jason Foura
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

A study of the US cabinet market and cabinet construction methods including substrates, composition, hardware, and finishes.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand the categories that go in to making up the domestic kitchen cabinet market. Knock down cabinets flat stacked and shipped from overseas and how they are competing against domestic cabinet makers with higher labor costs against countries with no labor laws.
  2. Identify and compare various substrates and composition of kitchen cabinets. How furniture board and MDF are made with binders and materials that can off gas.
  3. Examine the features and benefits of various finish options for kitchen cabinets. How these finishes are applied regarding robotics for paint and stain booths as well as capturing and recycling fumes/off gas. Discussion on off gassing of compounds in Resins such as thermofoil and melamine cabinet finishes.
  4. Define and compare framed and frameless cabinets, as well as factory built versus assembled cabinets. These differences play a significant role in how they are installed as well as the sturdiness and safety of hanging heavier weights/cabinet materials.
  5. Discuss available and new hardware options as well as best installation practices for safe and sturdy install.

Thermal Comfort, Unpacked: A Comprehensive Survey of HVAC Systems to Improve Design and Operational Understandings
Presented By Tyler Willis
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

Overlooking the smallest detail in HVAC systems design can cause huge issues later. Join us in this one-hour course as we discuss HVAC systems as it relates to thermal comfort, the ever evolving changes to energy requirements that impact HVAC systems and the factors that impact durability, sustainability and longevity.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Define and discuss the effects of thermal and acoustic comfort on building occupants that improve health, wellness, and productivity while evaluating the cost-efficiency, design considerations and the evolving HVAC industry.
  2. Explore the Commercial HVAC market and comparatively analyze the types of HVAC systems available for commercial use that optimize durability, innovation and sustainability.
  3. Identify the details that are important to ensure optimal occupant comfort and details that should be confirmed up-front to avoid future change-orders, unexpected costs, and errors that can cause safety concerns or negatively affect enhancing longevity and reliability.
  4. Recall important unit placement considerations for optimized performance and articulate the importance of proper service and maintenance clearance for operation and safety.
  5. Discuss how HVAC systems can contribute to LEED v4.1 Energy and Atmosphere and Indoor Environmental Quality credits and increase sustainability for a project.
