A sustainable path forward – Embodied Carbon and EPDs

08:05 AM - 09:05 AM

Along with energy conservation measures, sustainability trends are continuously becoming more robust with high focus on carbon emissions, product transparency and resiliency. Importantly, the embodied carbon impacts of building materials are becoming one of the primary measurements of a product’s sustainability. The use of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) is increasing where understanding the inputs and outputs of the lifecycle assessment are critical. This course will provide insight into these topics using stone wool insulation as an example, and relate them to overall durability, energy efficiency, and occupant health and comfort. These topics will be explored within the infrastructure of green building certification metrics and schemes such as LEED and local sustainability initiatives will be integrated. Best practices and user-friendly tools and resources to assist with sourcing sustainable products will be highlighted.

How It’s Made: Today’s PVC

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

PVC products have been around for 100 years. They’re common in the construction industry because of their durability and long life. But old PVC manufacturing practices still cause concern for some of today’s specifiers. This course will address those concerns head-on. We’ll talk about today’s manufacturing processes and how recycling is transforming the industry. You’ll see how PVC resin becomes a strong and beautiful product using the example of vinyl fencing. With the understanding of today’s regulations, collaboration, and green-building practices, you’ll have the confidence to specify today’s PVC products.

Designing for Sound Control: Effective, GREEN, Principles and Practices

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

In this one-hour course, design professionals will gain practical knowledge of effective principles of sound control and how they can be applied to the design of wall and floor/ceiling assemblies. We will discuss building code criteria and guidelines, including strategies to meet these requirements utilizing cellulosic fiberboard. By the end of this course, design professionals will be able to specify optimal sound control strategies that best fit each project’s needs.

Five High-Performance Innovations That Are Faster, Better, Cheaper

12:50 PM - 01:50 PM

High performance building, and zero energy homes in particular, are no longer a nice-to-have. This is obvious looking at the increased rigor of the latest energy codes, growth in voluntary certifications, new 45L federal tax credits, ESG movement and growing consumer demand. So now, builders must learn to get there faster, better and cheaper. In this session, learn the critical concepts for achieving zero energy and zero carbon homes along with the business case for doing so profitably. Explore a total cost accounting method to capture all related costs and benefits and discover the most cost-effective options for the most critical component, the enclosure. Leave on the right path to achieving zero energy performance and meeting buyer demand all while avoiding tens of thousands of dollars in unnecessary expense.

Design Residentially with SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels)

01:50 PM - 02:50 PM

Residential design with SIPs (structural insulated panels) is the fastest, most economic, and sustainable way to achieve your high-performing building envelope goals. If energy-efficient, durable, superior IAQ and occupant comfort are your residential goals to exceed in all seismic zones and high-velocity hurricane zones, then SIPs are for you. This course show you how to leverage off-site construction technologies to future-proof your designs.

Biophilic Design for All: Affordable, Low-Maintenance Materials That Mimic Nature

03:10 PM - 04:10 PM

Most architects have heard about biophilic design and agree with the concept of bringing the outdoors inside. However, very few designers take purposeful steps to incorporate it into their plans. Designers may assume that biophilic design is expensive or high maintenance, reserved for only those high-end projects. One may assume that bringing nature inside is complicated and requires customization. An architect may assume that some projects don’t warrant biophilia, like a warehouse. In this one-hour course, we’ll address those assumptions that hold architects back. We’ll introduce a simulated-wood product that mimics nature and delivers that positive human response. You’ll see numerous design ideas and applications that exemplify economical and low maintenance solutions for any project type. At the end of the course, we think you’ll agree that biophilic design is obtainable for any project and every occupant.
