and function will be presented, with close attention paid to common errors, as well. The benefits of
bonded waterproofing technology and how it has improved tiled showers will be stressed.

High-Performance Modified Wood: Beauty Built to Last

10:15 - 11:15

Wood is a top material choice in construction due to its beauty and longevity. But high demand has put a strain on this natural resource, especially for the timber with greatest durability like tropical hardwoods.

Today, new technology allows for the use of responsibly-sourced fast-growing timber in wood modification that yields products with the same or greater durability as those overexploited hardwoods.

This course provides an overview of the wood-modification process that results in a product that’s non-toxic, highly durable, Class-A Fire Rated, environment friendly, and ideal for use in indoor and outdoor applications. This course also explains how this Modified Wood contributes to LEED v4 certification.
