High-Performance Glass and Aluminum Building Envelopes

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

This course provides a comprehensive understanding of the glass-aluminum building envelope featured in high-rise construction. We’ll review the three main- types of curtain walls and the installation process for each. Design and functionality will be addressed specifically to project objectives along with the environment-conscious benefits of using glass and aluminum. Lastly, the course will review how to avoid moisture, temperature, and other pitfalls and failures in curtain-wall installation.

Western Red Cedar, Distinctive Sustainable Design

01:20 PM - 02:20 PM

The Western Red Cedar Lumber Association (WRCLA) is a Non-Profit trade association that was established in 1954. We offer training to discerning users of WRC including the architect community. Western Red Cedar Distinctive Sustainable Designs is a one-hour, face-to-face training session developed for the architect community and provided by WRCLA qualified trainers. Through this one hour session, architects will increase their knowledge of WRC; its' properties and performance characteristics.

Managing Condensation and Thermal Performance with Continuous Insulation

02:20 PM - 03:20 PM

Building codes and green building standards are continuing to raise the bar on energy efficiency and high performance in buildings. In wood-framed buildings designing for thermal and moisture management in wall cavities, as well as the air tightness of the building enclosure, are all core components to creating advanced building enclosures. This presentation will discuss the need for exterior insulation to manage heat transfer and reduce condensation in exterior walls by providing step-by-step examples of how to determine the amount of continuous insulation required to meet prescriptive code requirements depending on climate zone.

Design Green & Healthy Built Environments with Natural Wood Flooring

03:40 PM - 04:40 PM

In this course, we will discuss the myriad health benefits of natural wood in flooring, cladding and ceilings in the built environment. We will explain the value of specifying natural wood in biophilic design cannot be overstated. Natural wood improves indoor air quality, overall health, sleep, stress reduction. We will also talk about the sustainability of wood, carbon sequestration and the use of multiple species of wood to maintain the health of our biodiverse forests The distinctive beauty of natural wood in application will be demonstrated through architectural photographs of its use in high-end restaurants, healthcare facilities, hotels, residences, schools, event spaces, offices and showrooms We will discuss the importance of specifying fully certified natural wood for flooring, walls and ceilings. There will be a brief overview of the various certification schemes for wood and how to avoid “greenwashing” in your projects We will explain the stability of cross-laminated, balanced engineered natural wood flooring for radiant heat application And finally, we will outline the benefits of vertically integrated manufacturing without the use of any harmful chemicals resulting in holistically carbon-negative wood flooring even when shipped around the world.

Get Inspired! Design Smarter, Safer, and Greener with Innovation in Wood-Framed Construction

04:40 PM - 05:40 PM

Wood is a frequently overlooked building material for light-medium-commercial construction including mid-rise, multi-family, and mixed-use projects. This course features several North American examples that highlight the surprising capabilities of this natural resource.
Many architects, engineers, and project owners often default to steel and concrete instead of wood for wall, floor, and roof assemblies.
This course outlines:
- common misconceptions and capabilities of code-approved wood applications.
- the environmental and structural benefits of this sustainable natural resource.
- the virtues of wood when engineered for pre-cut and pre-assembled components.
- how wood applications integrate with building codes, construction techniques, and technical support.
- how choosing wood first contributes to on-time and on-schedule projects with significant cost savings.
