Insulated Metal Panels: Where Performance Meets Design

08:05 AM - 09:05 AM

Today’s specifiers expect cost-effective building solutions that deliver superior performance without compromising design or the environment. This course explains how the Insulated Metal Panel (IMP) meets those expectations. You’ll see the composition of the IMP and how its materials affect thermal performance, strength, and resistance to moisture, weather, and fire. The choice of materials also contributes to green-building goals at every stage of the product’s life cycle. The IMP is factory assembled, assuring high quality through consistency and accuracy. Installation costs are greatly reduced because the IMP arrives to the job site ready to install in one step. And the superior thermal performance means a reduction in operating costs (not to mention reduced emissions). Lastly, this course will deliver tremendous inspiration through project examples with numerous combinations of colors, materials, textures, and even curves that meet the functionality of any building type.

Making Sense of Sealants

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

Participants will learn about the different families of sealants and how to choose the correct product for each application. We will discuss the effect of UV light on sealants and the difference between structural or non structural silicon sealant. And finally, the importance of surface preparation before sealing joints.

The Role of Commercial Steel Doors in Resilient Design

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Resiliency is a growing necessity. It is important to understand the impacts on the built environment resulting from natural and manmade disasters and disturbances and to design for those impacts now. Presented in this course is an overview of the benefits of using steel doors as part of a resilient design strategy for applications requiring resistance to blasts, tornadoes, and ballistics.

Sustainable Exterior Envelope

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

At the end of this course, participants will know how to increase the durability of wood products used on building exterior envelope, understand best installation practices and differences between popular wood treatment methods. This AIA continuing education program touches on these issues and more, helping you design an exterior envelope that is durable and healthy for the home.

Overcoming Structural Floor Squeaks in Wood Frame Construction

01:20 PM - 02:20 PM

This course explores the causes and remedies for the nagging problem of squeaking floors. We will evaluate the various components of a typical floor and their contribution to squeaking floors. High performance sheathing and adhesives designed to mitigate the risk of floors squeaks will be compared to traditional framing and sheathing systems. Best practices for eliminating structural floor squeaks in wood frame construction will be outlined.

Design Green & Healthy Built Environments with Natural Wood Flooring

02:20 PM - 03:20 PM

In this course, we will discuss the myriad health benefits of natural wood in flooring, cladding and ceilings in the built environment. We will explain the value of specifying natural wood in biophilic design cannot be overstated. Natural wood improves indoor air quality, overall health, sleep, stress reduction. We will also talk about the sustainability of wood, carbon sequestration and the use of multiple species of wood to maintain the health of our biodiverse forests The distinctive beauty of natural wood in application will be demonstrated through architectural photographs of its use in high-end restaurants, healthcare facilities, hotels, residences, schools, event spaces, offices and showrooms We will discuss the importance of specifying fully certified natural wood for flooring, walls and ceilings. There will be a brief overview of the various certification schemes for wood and how to avoid “greenwashing” in your projects We will explain the stability of cross-laminated, balanced engineered natural wood flooring for radiant heat application And finally, we will outline the benefits of vertically integrated manufacturing without the use of any harmful chemicals resulting in holistically carbon-negative wood flooring even when shipped around the world.
