Sintered Compact Surfaces Basics: Design, Application & Sustainability - Neolith01

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

Materials used on exterior and interior surfaces need to withstand many elements, including water, scratched, high temperatures, UV, wind, etc. Choosing a material is certainly influenced by the ability to hold up over time but also by the available size and weight, maintenance, hygiene, bending properties, recyclability, VOC, not to mention the appearance and efficient and cost-effective installation. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely Sintered Compact Surfaces that can be used for a wide variety of application interior and exterior from countertops to curtain walls applications in both residential and commercial buildings.

Acoustic Doors and Green Design

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Sound transmission control is an issue that should be addressed in the design of any building. Acoustic comfort is part of providing an amenable interior space, and it requires having the proper level and quality of sound to utilize a space as planned. This course looks at the components, features, and the role of acoustic door assemblies in occupant comfort in both workplace and school environments.

High-Performance Glass and Aluminum Building Envelopes

01:10 PM - 02:10 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.

Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture

02:10 PM - 03:10 PM

In the macro critical path of project delivery, the installation of final floor finishes is one of the last items to occur prior to substantial completion. However, due to changes in adhesive formulations driven by concerns over indoor environmental quality, most project 09 flooring specifications require moisture testing before flooring can be installed on concrete slabs. Should/when those moisture tests fail, the project faces burdensome time delays, unexpected costs, or both.

LEED Pilot Credit #103: Integrative Analysis of Building Materials

03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

In the materials selection process, builders seek to balance numerous product performance attributes, including durability, aesthetics and health, safety and environmental impacts. Transparency and life cycle thinking are central components of a robust materials selection process, one that enables builders to choose the most appropriate materials for their project. The U.S. Green Building Council now offers an innovative LEED pilot credit (#103), Integrative Analysis of Building Materials, to encourage building project teams to evaluate products and materials using available life cycle information to identify those that have positive environmental, health and safety impacts. The credit informs project team decisions by providing access to information shared by building materials manufacturers on their product’s life cycle impacts.

Moisture Management in Tiled Showers

04:30 PM - 05:30 PM

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.
