Learning Objectives

1. Identify the fundamental characteristics of sustainable design.

2. Examine the sustainable aspects of concrete as a building material.

3. Evaluate the current approach for testing for concrete moisture against the principles of sustainability.

4. Specify proactive measures to address concrete slab moisture so projects are not prevented from installing on time.

5. Implement procedures that indemnify the specifying professional against failed project timelines and failed flooring due to moisture.


In general the course is very informative and the presentation is engaging.

Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design


Few aspects of the design process are conducted in “silos” as disassociated from one another as how many projects approach interior concrete slab specifications and subsequent flooring specification sections. This is not done intentionally, rather it is by-product of lack of coordination, and fundamental misunderstanding, between those involved with the structural elements and those involved with the aesthetic and finishing elements. During this presentation, we will discuss sustainability and what it means; drawing the attendee into a clear discussion of how sustainability relates to LEED, Lean Construction, Green Building, and process improvement. Inconsistencies with current specification processes related to concrete moisture as compared to the tenets of sustainability will be exposed, with clear recommendations given as to how the specifying professional can resolve those disconnects.
