Rigid Insulation Product Knowledge & Uses

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

This course will review an in-depth breakdown of the current uses of rigid insulation in the construction industry. The attendees will learn more about the differences of rigid insulation products and the recommended uses of each product type. Discussion points to include the changes of the current energy codes and the requirements for the use of continuous insulation in the majority of future projects. The participant will be able to better evaluate their current building assemblies and understand the requirements that are dictated by current codes.

Daylighting: Benefits, Basics & New Solutions

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

This program presents the benefits and strategies of providing natural light to
an interior environment. The holistic advantages in educational, residential and work
areas will be discussed. We will review the technological advances in the manufacture
and installation of skylights as well as the programs for calculating the benefits.
Throughout the presentation, an comprehensive representation of photographs provides
the participants with examples of design strategies and installation techniques

Stunning Facades with Sintered Stone

11:30 AM - 12:30 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.

Sound Control in Construction

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

This course defines the importance of sound control in the building industry where proper design can help avoid Litigation & Remediation. We will discuss building code criteria including the International Building Code (IBC-1207) and the International Residential Code. We will Identify areas where sound control is necessary for wall & floor/ceiling assemblies. We will then offer an explanation of terminologies including: STC, IIC, NRC, Use Patterns and Flanking Sound. The mechanisms of sound transmission and its attenuation will be discussed including: Mass, Double Leaf Construction, Field Damped Mass, Decoupling, Unbalancing, Coincidence Effect and Sound Masking.

Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture

02:10 PM - 03:10 PM

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.

Understanding Material Hazard, Exposure and Risk in the Built Environment

03:20 PM - 04:20 PM

Product and materials selection is a critical aspect of the building design and construction process. A variety of factors drive materials selection decisions, including sustainability, health and wellness issues like indoor air quality, and the desire for innovative, functional, state-of-the-art building spaces that meet 21st century needs.
Learning Objectives:
1) Understand the differences between hazard, exposure, and risk in terms of chemical ingredients and materials selection
2) Recognize the limitations of hazard-only thinking when selecting building materials
3) Understand how to make comparisons of products based on ingredients, performance, cost and life cycle impacts
4) Identify the tools available to evaluate the safety of building products and materials

Elevator Technology where it`s been, where it`s going

04:20 PM - 05:20 PM

With urbanization on the rise, the vertical transportation industry is challenged more than ever to provide eco-efficient, cost-saving, and space-saving solutions. This session will cover the history of elevator technology and compare conventional applications with today's technological advancements, enabling attendees to critique the risks and disadvantages of dated technology and identify the advantages of newer technology. In particular, attendees will learn about both recent developments and future trends concerning machine-room-less (MRL) elevators. The presentation will address design benefits, installation and ownership costs, and LEED contributions.
