Sound Control in Construction 18 old

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

This course defines the importance of sound control in the building industry where proper design can help avoid Litigation & Remediation.
We will discuss building code criteria including the International Building Code (IBC-1207) and the International Residential Code. We will Identify areas where sound control is necessary for wall & floor/ceiling assemblies.
We will then offer an explanation of terminologies including: STC, IIC, NRC, Use Patterns and Flanking Sound. The mechanisms of sound transmission and its attenuation will be discussed including: Mass, Double Leaf Construction, Field Damped Mass, Decoupling, Unbalancing, Coincidence Effect and Sound Masking.

Whole Building Ventilation: Providing Healthy, Comfortable & Energy Efficient Solutions

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

The proven best way to save energy on heating and cooling is to make buildings more airtight. Airtight buildings are more comfortable, durable, resilient and affordable. By including balanced ventilation with heat recovery, occupants gets fresh, filtered air delivered at all times while continuously removing odors, moisture, CO2 and other contaminants.

This informative presentation will describe how to ventilate an airtight building and provide superior indoor air quality, comfort and energy efficiency.

At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Understand the advantages and weaknesses of supply-only, exhaust-only, and balanced ventilation systems
2. Learn how heat recovery ventilation enables a comfortable and healthy environment
3. Understand HRV/ERV’s role in building an energy efficient home
4. Learn how to evaluate and choose the most effective HRV/ERV system

While designing and building his own very low-energy, high-performance home, architect John Rockwell became a Technical Sales Engineer with Swiss-owned Zehnder America, a world leader in providing superior indoor climate solutions.

A confirmed building science nerd, John received his Bachelor of Architecture from Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston and his Master of Architecture from the University of Miami. In addition to his former architecture practice, his career has included teaching, municipal clean energy management, utility-funded weatherization, building science consulting and Passive House design.

Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture

01:10 PM - 02:10 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.

Introduction to Engineered Glazed Timber Curtain Wall

02:10 PM - 03:10 PM

Architects and Construction professionals understand the numerous benefits of building with wood. But, many are unaware of its application for a GLAZED TIMBER CURTAIN WALL (TCW). Today’s advanced glazing technology provides opportunities to incorporate the beauty and energy-efficiency of wood into glazed facades that not only bring the outdoors in but also can serve as the building’s heavy lifter. This course will present the differences between a conventional non-load-bearing curtain wall and a timber curtain wall (TCW) with load-bearing and non-load-bearing capabilities. We will also show applications of Timber projects using glulam mullions in North America.

Understanding Material Hazard, Exposure and Risk in the Built Environment

03:20 PM - 04:20 PM

Product and materials selection is a critical aspect of the building design and construction process. A variety of factors drive materials selection decisions, including sustainability, health and wellness issues like indoor air quality, and the desire for innovative, functional, state-of-the-art building spaces that meet 21st century needs.
Learning Objectives:
1) Understand the differences between hazard, exposure, and risk in terms of chemical ingredients and materials selection
2) Recognize the limitations of hazard-only thinking when selecting building materials
3) Understand how to make comparisons of products based on ingredients, performance, cost and life cycle impacts
4) Identify the tools available to evaluate the safety of building products and materials
