Vinyl in Design: The Material for21st Century Building & Construction

08:05 AM - 09:05 AM

Vinyl plays a major role in the design and construction of modern buildings. It contributes to sustainability, wellness and resilience of people and their communities. This session will demonstrate the importance of achieving client performance goals using thoughtful, multi-attribute material selection criteria. Learning Objectives: 1. How vinyl is made, most versatile plastic in construction 2. Three parts of sustainability, how resilience enables people and communities to bounce back 3. Understanding disclosure and optimization, selection criteria, hazard, exposure, risk 4. Role of materials in health and wellness 5. Industry improvements, best practice, aspirations for a sustainable future

Acoustic Door Assemblies and Their Role in Sound Control

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

Sound control is a critical element to a building’s design. How an occupant will use the space must be understood in order to deliver a healthy and functional environment free of noise. Is speech privacy important? Is this a learning environment? Does the office open to a manufacturing floor? We all think of the walls, ceiling, and floor when discussing sound attenuation. But we must not overlook the importance of an acoustic-door assembly. Without the proper acoustic door, the sound-control goals in an acoustic plan may not be met. This course will review healthy sound levels and how to test and identify target STC ratings. We’ll discuss the elements of the acoustic-door assembly and how the assembly addresses fire-ratings and ADA compliance, contributes to LEED certification and green building, and provides security for classified files and electronic data.

Mastering Timber: How, When, and at What LOD to Introduce Carbon-Fixing Assemblies into Architectural Design

11:20 AM - 12:20 PM

Introduce wood structure and biogenic material alternatives at the proper level of detail in schematic design.

  • AIA HSW # MasterTimber
  • Provider: QWEB
  • Eli Gould Presenter
    Eli graduated with one of the first dual Architecture/Forestry degrees from Yale in the early ‘90s, with a conviction that the two fields would eventually be more linked. After a quarter century, this seems more true and even mainstream, but for many years it was an entrepreneurial effort in the small vertical wood prefab companies he ran in Vermont, and in the automated timber industry where he often consulted. For the last three years, Eli has brought those experiences into a nonprofit market development role for QWEB. When he’s not trying to transform the AEC industry into a positive climate force he enjoys small town and organic farm life in Vermont with his family.

Understanding Advanced Wall Systems with Continuous Insulation

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

This session explores evolving trends in building enclosure technology, and subsequent changes in energy efficient building design; with especial focus on the role of continuous exterior insulation (CI). The net energy savings realized in a properly insulated building are by now well understood, and these savings are increasingly being required by stringent local building and energy codes. Current building science research and field monitoring data will be presented, to demonstrate how the effective R value of various insulating materials perform and change in differing regional climates, temperature ranges, and seasonal conditions. Strategies for designing and constructing highly insulated and cost effective wall assemblies while still minimizing thermal bridging are also discussed.

Sustainable Exterior Envelope

02:10 PM - 03:10 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.
