Sintered Compact Surfaces Basics: Design, Application & Sustainability - Neolith01

08:00 AM - 09:00 AM

Materials used on exterior and interior surfaces need to withstand many elements, including water, scratched, high temperatures, UV, wind, etc. Choosing a material is certainly influenced by the ability to hold up over time but also by the available size and weight, maintenance, hygiene, bending properties, recyclability, VOC, not to mention the appearance and efficient and cost-effective installation. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely Sintered Compact Surfaces that can be used for a wide variety of application interior and exterior from countertops to curtain walls applications in both residential and commercial buildings.

Building Envelope Solution

02:15 PM - 03:15 PM

The building envelope consists of all exterior components of a building roof, walls, below-grade waterproofing, windows, skylights, and so on. When looking at these components it is important that each one be taken into consideration to prevent moisture or air from migrating into the building. The envelope is a complicated and integral part of any high-performance building. However, it is often the most neglected portion. This presentation aims to educate the participants on the importance of the building envelope and how the individual components contained within the system must be designed, and constructed to ensure a long-lasting, energy-efficient building.

Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

04:30 PM - 05:30 PM

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.
