Making Sense of Sealants

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.

Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

In many projects, installation of floor finishes is one of the items to occur prior to substantial completion.  However, 09 flooring specification sections require moisture testing before flooring can be installed on concrete slabs.  When those moisture tests fail, the project faces time delays, unexpected costs, or both.  During this presentation, we will:  (1) give significant discussion to the importance of design intent and how losing focus on what the owner expects can lead to catastrophic, consequences (2) examine several misconceptions associated with field moisture testing and project owner and design team liablility associated with concrete moisture induces flooring failure; and (3) we will give clear recommendations as to how the specifying professional can eliminate concrete moisture as a project delivery issue while simultaneously protecting the project owner and design team from project delivery delays/cost overruns and future failed flooring.

Wood Glazed Facades in Net-Zero and Passive Buildings

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Architects and LEED professionals understand the numerous benefits of building with wood. But, many are unaware of its application in a timber curtain wall (TCW). Today’s technology provides opportunities to incorporate the beauty and energy-efficiency of wood into glazed facades that not only bring the outdoors in but also serve as the building’s heavy lifter. 

This course will present the differences between a conventional curtain wall and a timber curtain wall (TCW) including load-bearing and non-load-bearing capabilities as well as net-zero and passive building. We will also show example of projects using TWC.

Vinyl in Design: The Material for21st Century Building & Construction

01:20 PM - 02:20 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

LEED Pilot Credit #103: Integrative Analysis of Building Materials

02:30 PM - 03:30 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.

Understanding Advanced Wall Systems with Continuous Insulation

03:30 PM - 04:30 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.
