Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

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.

Making Sense of Sealants 2020

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.

Building Barrier-free Showers

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Mandated requirements for ADA compliancy and demand from an aging population, is creating a
growing need for barrier-free bathrooms. Today’s ADA compliant bathroom no longer has to be utilitarian
or “institutional” in its design. Design options are enhanced through the use of tile and innovative
construction methods. The result is beautiful bathrooms that also adhere to ADA standards for
accessible design.
This seminar will examine ways in which barrier-free environments can be customized to include
various design elements while remaining ADA compliant. This seminar will also address why bonded
waterproofing technology lends itself to the construction requirements of barrier-free design.

The Benefits of Graphics in the Built Environment

02:10 PM - 03:10 PM

Most of us are unaware of the important role that graphics, art, and signage play in the built environment. Graphics set the tone when we walk into a space. The feeling we get when we see a wall mural in the lobby can determine how much time we want to spend with the company. Images of the company’s research scientists, a hospital’s compassionate caregivers, or the mouthwatering food at a restaurant trigger that positive first impression: •This company values innovation and research. •I’m in good hands after my surgery. •Everything on the menu looks fabulous. Signage also plays a critical role. Reinforcing the logo, ensuring visitors don’t get lost, and providing safety should not be overlooked. This course will review the benefits and types of large graphics and the industry applications of each.

Integrally Troweled Cure & Polished Concrete

03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

This program addresses the need to properly cure and finish concrete. Discusses the current ACI recommendations and the new technology that allows dramatic time savings while Increasing quality of the finished product. Education in advanced concrete technology with the use of the power trowel alone to create a unique architectural concrete floor. Education in advanced methods to expose aggregate and ultra high gloss are also shown. This unique system also eliminates moisture loss which reduces cracking and seals the surface so effectively there may be no additional need for moisture mitigation.

LEED Pilot Credit #103: Integrative Analysis of Building Materials

04:30 PM - 05:30 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.
