Moisture Management in Tiled Showers

08:00 AM - 09:00 AM

Leaks and mold continue to pose serious problems for the construction industry. This seminar will

compare traditional waterproofing systems with modern waterproofing technology to show how tiled

showers have evolved. The fundamentals of both approaches, including proper design, execution,

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 AM - 11:15 AM

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.

High-Performance Glass and Aluminum Building Envelopes

11:15 AM - 12:15 PM

This course provides a comprehensive understanding of the glass-aluminum building envelope featured in high-rise construction. We’ll review the three main- types of curtain walls and the installation process for each. Design and functionality will be addressed specifically to project objectives along with the environment-conscious benefits of using glass and aluminum. Lastly, the course will review how to avoid moisture, temperature, and other pitfalls and failures in curtain-wall installation.
