Understanding Hot Water Consumption, Energy Use & System Efficiencies with HVAC Heat Recovery in High Use Facilities
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

The efficiency of a facility’s water heating system is vital to not only the building’s daily operation but also to the comfort of its occupants. Join us in this one-hour course as we discuss how to estimate hot water demands and determine the capacity requirements for the water heating system in a high use facility.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Recall the unique water heating requirements of a high use facility such as restaurants to ensure daily operations can proceed safely and efficiently
  2. List the three factors to consider when determining the hot water demand of a facility and how to calculate the BTUs required to meet a building’s needs
  3. Discuss how thermal loss impacts a water heating system’s efficiency, as well as the thermal efficiency available with different water heating methods
  4. Illustrate the energy savings and cost savings possible by utilizing emerging energy recovery technologies that increase the efficiency of water heating systems, especially in markets focused on electrification of heat

The Devil is in the Details: Common Pitfalls Specifying Commercial Boilers & Water Heaters
Presented By Eric Conner
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

Overlooking the smallest detail in the beginning can cause huge issues later on. Join us in this one-hour course as we cover common pitfalls designers face when specifying commercial boilers and water heaters. We will review different types of installation and application errors that can cause major safety concerns.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Review combustion fundamentals and differentiate between condensing and non-condensing water heater systems
  2. Discuss how misapplication of water heaters and boilers can cause major concerns and dangerous environments for contractors and occupants
  3. Identify the end results of poor venting, including increased liability, destroyed boiler components, and potential risks to occupant safety
  4. Recall minimum combustible clearance and minimum service clearance guidelines and articulate the importance of proper service clearance for operation and safety
  5. Judge real world applications for proper venting, clearance, piping, and other processes to ensure best practices and guidelines have been followed

Terrazzo Versatility
Presented By Gary French
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

The purpose of this presentation is to provide information which will be helpful in specifying terrazzo. The participants will gain an understanding of the various terrazzo systems and how terrazzo can be utilized in a variety of design applications.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Explain what terrazzo is, its rich history, and why it should be specified. It will give the definition, and list components. Endless color options and various aggregates will be discussed.
  2. Explore the green elements and sustainability of terrazzo. The original recycled flooring, terrazzo has proven to last over 100 years in buildings and survive hurricanes and flooding events.
  3. Discuss renovation of old buildings through the use of terrazzo and restoration of old terrazzo.
  4. Discuss the many forms terrazzo takes from floors to walls, stairs, curbs, and countertops in both interior and exterior settings. It will explain how a change in aggregate size can enhance the design. It will show how elements like LED lights can be incorporated into the floor.
  5. Explain the types of systems available in terrazzo and their installation.
  6. Explore a series of design possibilities for all variations of terrazzo.
