Concrete Tile Roofing: The World's Most Sustainable and Energy Efficient Roof System - Update
Sponsored By Eagle Roofing
Presented By David Vallas
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

In this one hour course, we will take an in-depth look at the sustainability and energy efficient attributes of concrete tile roofing, including the near zero-waste manufacturing process, life-cycle cost and performance versus temporary asphalt shingle roofing as well as the installation process which enhances the inherent thermal mass

Learning Objectives:
  1. Discuss how the versatility of concrete tile roofing combined with its durability makes it one of the most sustainable roofing products available
  2. Consider the value of products composed of a small number of raw materials that are sustainable, including some recycled materials
  3. Review the near zero waste manufacturing process of concrete roof tiles from the introduction of raw materials to the finished product
  4. Compare and contrast an installation method that exploits the air permeable characteristics of concrete tile roofs versus temporary roofing materials
  5. Identify key performance characteristics of concrete tile roofing including wind and hail resistance
  6. Analyze the longevity, durability, and overall life cycle cost analysis of concrete roof tile compared to asphalt shingles, wood shakes, slate, and metal
  7. Confidently specify concrete tile roofing as an alternative to slate, metal, wood shakes, and temporary asphalt shingles

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

The purpose of this presentation is to provide general information which will be helpful in specifying terrazzo in a hospital or healthcare setting. 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 in hospitals and healthcare settings. It will show how terrazzo is essential in operating rooms. 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. Explain the types of systems available in terrazzo. The differences in cement systems and epoxy will be explained. The installation of each system will be shown and discussed. Surface preparation, moisture testing, grouting and grinding will be addressed.
  4. Address poured in place stairs, curbs, non-slip strips, crack repair, flexural test, crack membrane, and divider strips.
