Specification Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 IDCEC HSW CEU(s)

In many projects, installation of floor finishes is one of the last items to occur prior to substantial completion. However, 09 flooring specification sections require moisture testing before flooring can be installed on concrete slabs. When those moisture tests fail, the project faces time delays, unexpected costs, or both.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Discuss owner’s design intent and how it drives project requirements, thereby directly impacting specification language.
  2. Review specific industry documents and reference standards that drives the requirement to moisture test all concrete slabs.
  3. Investigate the genesis of current 09 flooring specification language.
  4. Specify sustainable design processes that eliminate: (1) project delivery delays due to concrete slab moisture, (2) subsequent bond or moisture failures, and (3) design team liability for each.

It's All Downhill...The Evolution of Slope-to-Drain Shower Pans
Sponsored By Noble Company
Presented By Dean Moilanen
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 IDCEC HSW CEU(s)

Slope-to-drain waterproofing concepts are an essential part of ceramic tile and stone installations. Over time, a variety of installation methods and products have been employed to achieve the required slope to drain. Failure to follow industry best practices can result in costly failures in wet-area applications.

Learning Objectives:
  1. We will examine the evolution of slope-to-drain shower pan methods.
  2. We will examine the pros and cons of historic slope-to-drain shower pan methods.
  3. We will investigate the latest developments in slope-to-drain technology.
  4. We will examine current best practice for successful slope-to-drain installations.

Post-Pandemic Sustainable Design for Restrooms, Locker Rooms, and Public Spaces
Sponsored By Bradley Corporation
Presented By Daniel Hughes
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour
1 IDCEC HSW CEU(s)

In the wake of COVID-19, people expect more from the facilities they use daily. Public spaces, especially restrooms and locker rooms, must be clean, hygienic, and accessible for everyone to use. Emphasizing public health should not require sacrificing sustainability or aesthetics.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify the short-term and long-term impacts that the global pandemic will have on public restroom design, especially as they relate to health and safety
