High-Performance Modified Wood: Beauty Built to Last

04:30 AM - 05:30 AM

Wood is a top material choice in construction due to its beauty and longevity. But high demand has put a strain on this natural resource, especially for the timber with greatest durability like tropical hardwoods. Today, new technology allows for the use of responsibly-sourced fast-growing timber in wood modification that yields products with the same or greater durability as those overexploited hardwoods. This course provides an overview of the wood-modification process that results in a product that’s non-toxic, highly durable, Class-A Fire Rated, environment friendly, and ideal for use in indoor and outdoor applications. This course also explains how this Modified Wood contributes to LEED v4 certification.

Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

08:00 AM - 09:00 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.

This course reviews the evolution of Glulam manufacturing and gains an understanding of the versatility offered by 24F-V4 Glulam manufactured in framing widths and I-Joist compatible depths as a means to expand the available options designers have from the EWP product category. Further, participants will be asked to re-evaluate how they define “value engineering” along with where and when they specify custom vs. stock Glulam, based on versatility, cost, manufacturing lead time, and availability.
