Understanding Advanced Wall Systems with Continuous Insulation

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

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.

Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

09:10 AM - 10:10 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.

Code Compliant Exterior Systems for Wood Framed Building Envelopes

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

This course investigates the most recent code changes emphasizing building envelope performance. We will explore next generation integrated solutions that simultaneously provide protection against moisture penetration, air leakage, and thermal bridging. Installation benefits and on-site quality control issues related to multi-solution integrated systems will also be evaluated.

Gauged Porcelain Tile Systems

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

In this class session participants will learn about training programs that are available for help and education, for workers in the industry. In addition, participants will learn how to use the proper gauged porcelain tools, troweling, lippage control and dry installation methods. They will gain an understanding of the importance of having qualified installers that has gone through a certified training program.

Joint Sealant Technology - Their Design and Use

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

Joint sealants seal penetrations between construction elements…a critical part of the building envelope. They prevent the ingress of water/moisture into the building interior or through joints/gaps. They also play a role in the prevention of reinforced concrete corrosion, which can lead to structural failures.

Metal Panels 101

02:10 PM - 03:10 PM

The course will give a general overview of the

key aspects of the application, substrate

selection, coating options, and fundamental

benefits of metal roof and wall panels. This

course is meant to give a baseline

understanding of metal panels to those with

limited experience and enhance and strengthen

the knowledge base of those with experience

with metal panels.
