Escalator Technology, Where It's Been. Where It's Going.

09:00 AM - 10:00 AM

This presentation explores the basics of escalator design, and the essential design and code criteria to keep in mind when integrating escalators into the overall people flow solution for a particular project.

The presentation will specifically discuss the idiosyncrasies of escalator space planning, and how to match project performance needs with specific escalator “types” and features. It will also take a deeper dive into how an escalator works, the basic operating components, and how this might impact specifications.

Finally, the topic of replacing old existing escalators in existing buildings is touched upon, particularly how to select the “right” solution from the variety of replacement options that are available to building owners today.

Stunning Facades with Sintered Stone

11:15 AM - 12:15 PM

Designing a building facade, whether commercial, residential, new, or retrofit, can be both artistically enjoyable and technically complex. With an array of impressive characteristics, sintered stone helps create lighter, stronger, more durable, and more sustainable buildings. This course will demonstrate why Sintered Stone is a product of choice as it can provide the artistic appeal, technical performance, and sustainability for green construction to satisfy the wide range of needs for successful and stunning facade design.

LEED Pilot Credit #103: Integrative Analysis of Building Materials

02:15 PM - 03:15 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.

Composite Wood Products in Cladding and Architectural Trim

03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

Wood-plastic composite products offer a compelling alternative to traditional wood cladding and architectural trim. These products replicate the look of natural wood but offer superior color retention and life-cycle performance while requiring little to no maintenance. This learning unit will provide an overview of wood-plastic composite cladding and trim, with an emphasis on the sustainability benefits.
