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.

Healthy Home: All Control Layers Working Together
Sponsored By Benjamin Obdyke
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

Buildings have become a complex network of control systems which must work together to prevent failure, but often times these systems are incorporated incorrectly and lead to significant damage and unhealthy living conditions.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand why moisture management and drainage gaps, behind claddings, are more critical as we focus more on air tightness in the structure's envelope.
  2. Recognize that a true air barrier is created with a continuous plane around the entire building envelope.
  3. Understand how all control layers in the building envelope work together to prevent failure.
  4. Recognize the importance of communication between trades, design professionals, and manufacturers are vital to ensure proper detailing in the building envelope.

Improving the Performance of Finished Concrete Flooring
Sponsored By PROSOCO
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

This overview of concrete floor basics shows participants how to get the most from finished concrete floors. Along the way, it discusses levels of finished concrete flooring not commonly known. The program shows how to protect and maintain finished concrete flooring.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Compare the waste generation characteristics of lithium-silicate hardener/densifiers to older potassium and sodium-silicate hardeners/densifiers.
  2. Estimate the expected service life of a finished concrete floor and rate it for sustainability on a scale of "good-fair-poor."
  3. List two ways finished concrete floors "perform" that contribute to sustainability.
  4. Explain how regular maintenance contributes to sustainability of polished concrete floors.

11:30 am

Commercial Sectional Doors
Sponsored By Raynor Garage Doors
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

Types of sectional doors, applications, performance factors including thermal performance, building clearances, track mounting & types of tracks, special applications & options, appearance & aesthetics and commercial operators.

Learning Objectives:
  1. How ensuring proper clearances around the door and using the proper track ensure safe operation of the door.
  2. Learn what accessories are available to design into the door to meet the users needs, including safety and security.
  3. How thermal air infiltration and insulation affects energy efficiency.
  4. Select the correct door for the application to meet the needs of the end user from residential/commercial, to commercial, industrial, or specialty applications.

The Devil is in the Details: Common Pitfalls Specifying Commercial Boilers & Water Heaters
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

Innovations and Best Practices for Specifying High-Quality Casework
Sponsored By Case Systems
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

Engineered casework has evolved over the last few decades due to innovations in materials, concepts, and manufacturing technologies. This presentation is intended to give a thorough understanding of the best practices and options to be specified to ensure quality casework is manufactured and installed.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Define areas that need to be included when specifying casework, including edge, core, and hardware. Explain how the proper detailing can lead to a successful project that is aesthetically pleasing and maintains the welfare of building occupants
  2. Compare and contrast different core materials and what unique characteristics they each have regarding safety of building occupants
  3. Identify current trends and code considerations when specifying laminate casework and how adhering to safety standards will produce a project that is durable and environmentally conscious
  4. Discuss how Division 6 and Division 12 specifications and AQI Qualifications impact your casework project

3:20 pm

Concrete Tile Roofing: The World's Most Sustainable and Energy Efficient Roof System
Sponsored By Eagle Roofing
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 attirbutes 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 mas

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 other 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
