Understanding Wood Aesthetic Cladding and Soffit Technologies

08:05 AM - 09:05 AM

This learning unit will provide an in-depth overview of current “wood” design technologies natural and synthetic. - Identify current market “wood aesthetic” technologies - Understand the core materials of each technology - Understand the sustainable features and Life Cycle benefits for each technology based on the following criteria: Color Retention, Maintenance & Warranty - Describe the surface burning characteristics and explain how they can be specified to achieve code compliance - Installation Details - Budgetary Information

09:10 AM

Building Facade Glazing: Specify the right sealants in structural and non-structural applications.

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

During our Building Façade Glazing training, 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 silicone sealants. And finally, the importance of surface preparation before sealing joints.

Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Few aspects of the design process are conducted in “silos” as disassociated from one another as how many projects approach interior concrete slab specifications and subsequent flooring specification sections. This is not done intentionally, rather it is by-product of lack of coordination, and fundamental misunderstanding, between those involved with the structural elements and those involved with the aesthetic and finishing elements. During this presentation, we will discuss sustainability and what it means; drawing the attendee into a clear discussion of how sustainability relates to LEED, Lean Construction, Green Building, and process improvement. Inconsistencies with current specification processes related to concrete moisture as compared to the tenets of sustainability will be exposed, with clear recommendations given as to how the specifying professional can resolve those disconnects.

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

11:30 AM - 12:30 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.

Chemistry in Context - Material Science in Building & Construction

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) professionals are asked to make informed materials decisions on an almost-daily basis - decisions which call for a foundational understanding of how those materials are made and their potential impact on the building’s health, sustainability and resiliency. This course helps architects, engineers, designers and contractors navigate the complexity of materials selection by providing an overview of the role of chemistry in enhancing the product and building performance. The course provides a review of key methodologies for measuring benefits and relevant information to help inform product selection. Further, it provides a primer on how chemicals are regulated in the marketplace.

Vinyl in Design: The Material for21st Century Building & Construction

02:10 PM - 03:10 PM

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
