Breathing Freely: How HVAC Systems can Enhance Indoor Environmental and Air Quality
Presented By Jed Dela Cruz
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

Join us in this one-hour course as we explore the constantly evolving concepts of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ). These two terms have been around for years but have gained newfound importance due to the pandemic.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Examine Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) and evaluate the health and wellness benefits of designing projects that focus on IAQ & IEQ products, equipment and systems.
  2. Explore building codes, standards and wellness certifications and how a building can meet the criteria to get a health and wellness designation.
  3. Investigate the myriad of applications for IAQ and IEQ associated with HVAC systems that improve the wellbeing of building occupants and healthy building compliance.
  4. Illustrate how HVAC systems can help design professionals achieve healthy building standards that improve IAQ and IEQ by analyzing potential scenarios. In doing so we will highlight key ways HVAC systems contribute to health and wellness criteria.

Sustainable Surfaces: The Benefits of Composite Pavers
Sponsored By Brava Roof Tile
Presented By Lee Martucci
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

During the Industrial Revolution, engineers looked for ways to create materials that were strong, waterproof, and long-lasting. New advances in technology led to the creation of beautiful, better-performing, longer-lasting, and sustainable materials for a wide use of applications.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Discuss the benefits of composite in-ground pavers, roof deck pavers, and resurfacing pavers and how they can help design professionals create more sustainable projects
  2. Contrast the sustainable attributes of composite materials over traditional pavers including carbon footprint, recyclability, durability, maintenance, and safety of occupants
  3. Compare the costs, installation, design options, and applications for composite pavers and concrete pavers and how they benefit owners
  4. Review case studies that illustrate the sustainable, durability, and safety attributes of composite pavers and best practices for design professionals

When the Walls Close In
Sponsored By Noble Company
Presented By James Medina
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

It is undeniable that the options for wet area wall surfaces are growing, literally. Whether choosing large-unit porcelain tile, one-piece ceramic wall surfaces, or other solid surfaces in shower applications, the fact remains, the fundamentals of wet-area waterproofing must still be followed.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Examine the history of large-format finished surfaces in wet areas/showers.
  2. Review the nature of vapor migration in wet areas and the role waterproofing membranes play in vapor containment, as well as best practices.
  3. Highlight misinformation, misperceptions, and ineffective installation practices which are fueling the increase in shortened life cycles of shower enclosures.
  4. Project Planning & Design
  5. Building Systems, Materials, & Assemblies
