Going Curbless
Sponsored By Noble Company
Presented By Dean Moilanen
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

Curbless showers are in high demand, sometimes solely for their streamlined look, other times because of ADA compliance efforts or similar aging-in-place design measures.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Describe new trends in shower design and installation systems that provide an environment supporting an individuals ability to accomplish day-to-day activities without assistance or with minimal assistance.
  2. Discuss current industry standards and their impact on shower systems from a safe entry to shower and exit from shower, while being able to clean to a healthy standard.
  3. Explain design and barrier-free shower installation techniques to accommodate various construction obstacles, while complying with building standards and social sustainability.
  4. Present new installation methodology and systems which offer site flexibility as well as provide for a durable, watertight installation.

The Significance of the Fabricator in the Design Process: Architectural Panel Surfaces & Systems
Sponsored By CEI Materials
Presented By Chris Kimball
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

Educate the Design Team as to the key role and significance played by the Fabricator on a project. This new understanding will enable the Team to consult and involve the Fabricator early in the design process.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Summarize the key role that the Fabricator should play in the overall design process using exterior cladding. This early Fabricator involvement along with the Manufacturer and Installer, will streamline the design process, timely completion and cost effectiveness
  2. Discuss the various surface materials, their features and benefits, and how they contribute to energy performance
  3. Discuss the advantages of the standard attachment system options in developing the total wall assembly and how they work in tandem with the other components such as continuous insulation and water barriers
  4. Discuss the advantages of various attachment systems in developing the total wall assembly and how they work in tandem with other components such as continuous insulation and water barriers
  5. Explain the various code requirements including fire testing, etc.
  6. Discuss the fabrication process including design, project management, fabrication efficiencies and installation
  7. Describe the significance of manufacturing and fabricating in an environmentally responsible manner
