LEED Pilot Credit #103: Integrative Analysis of Building Materials

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

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.

Incorporating Sustainable Materials Into Commercial Restroom Design

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Learn about HDPE, it’s physical attributes, composition, design options and sustainable contributions to the design and construction of any project. We'll also discuss at why product transparency and responsible manufacturing are important considerations when specifying a sustainable product.

Acoustic Door Assemblies and Their Role in Sound Control

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

Sound control is a critical element to a building’s design. How an occupant will use the space must be understood in order to deliver a healthy and functional environment free of noise. Is speech privacy important? Is this a learning environment? Does the office open to a manufacturing floor? We all think of the walls, ceiling, and floor when discussing sound attenuation. But we must not overlook the importance of an acoustic-door assembly. Without the proper acoustic door, the sound-control goals in an acoustic plan may not be met. This course will review healthy sound levels and how to test and identify target STC ratings. We’ll discuss the elements of the acoustic-door assembly and how the assembly addresses fire-ratings and ADA compliance, contributes to LEED certification and green building, and provides security for classified files and electronic data.

Understanding Advanced Wall Systems with Continuous Insulation - Stuff It or Wrap It

02:20 PM - 03:20 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.

Factory Prefinishing of Exterior Building Products

03:20 PM - 04:20 PM

Siding and exterior cladding can be factory finished, which provides up to a 30 year finish warranty, and opportunities for interesting finishes. Learn why specifiers and designers are increasingly adding a specification for factory finishing to meet the demands from their clients for beautiful exteriors with low/no maintenance on a wide range of materials.
