Acoustic Door Assemblies and Their Role in Sound Control

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

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.

Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture

09:10 AM - 10:10 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.

Vinyl in Design: The Material for21st Century Building & Construction

11:30 AM - 12:30 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

01:10 PM - 02:10 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.

Canadian Hardwoods -Beauty, Durability and Sustainability.

02:10 PM - 03:10 PM

Canadian hardwood lumber and flooring provide architects with everything they need to create beautiful, practical and durable projects and accessories, while fulfilling the need and desire to meet sustainability and green building requirements. In this presentation, we will highlight that Canadian hardwoods are the material of choice to provide durability and natural elegance, as a renewable material for commercial and high end residential projects.
