Proactively Address Moisture in Roof Assemblies

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

Moisture within roof assemblies, or the concern over such, has recently become a major focus of discussion for the design/build community due to project schedule delays and disruptions to businesses and institutions. Despite the disruption to projects this issue causes, there remains significant misunderstandings across the design build industry regarding product warranties, field moisture tests, and just how long it takes concrete “to dry”. During this presentation, we will discuss common terms associated with concrete that are often misused and misunderstood. Further, the various sources of roof system moisture will be identified with clear recommendations given as to how the specifying professional can proactively address these sources through the construction documents.

Introduction to Engineered Glazed Timber Curtain Wall

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Architects and Construction professionals understand the numerous benefits of building with wood. But, many are unaware of its application for a GLAZED TIMBER CURTAIN WALL (TCW). Today’s advanced glazing technology provides opportunities to incorporate the beauty and energy-efficiency of wood into glazed facades that not only bring the outdoors in but also can serve as the building’s heavy lifter. This course will present the differences between a conventional non-load-bearing curtain wall and a timber curtain wall (TCW) with load-bearing and non-load-bearing capabilities. We will also show applications of Timber projects using glulam mullions in North America.

High-Performance Glass and Aluminum Building Envelopes

01:10 PM - 02:10 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.

Understanding Advanced Wall Systems with Continuous Insulation

02:30 PM - 03:30 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.

Sustainable Exterior Envelope

03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

At the end of this course, participants will know how to increase the durability of wood products used on building exterior envelope, understand best installation practices and differences between popular wood treatment methods. This AIA continuing education program touches on these issues and more, helping you design an exterior envelope that is durable and healthy for the home.
