Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

08:10 AM - 09:10 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.

Making Sense of Sealants

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

Participants will learn about the different families of sealants and how to choose the correct product for each application. We will discuss the effect of UV light on sealants and the difference between structural or non structural silicon sealant. And finally, the importance of surface preparation before sealing joints.

Understanding Material Hazard, Exposure and Risk in the Built Environment

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Product and materials selection is a critical aspect of the building design and construction process. A variety of factors drive materials selection decisions, including sustainability, health and wellness issues like indoor air quality, and the desire for innovative, functional, state-of-the-art building spaces that meet 21st century needs.
Learning Objectives:
1) Understand the differences between hazard, exposure, and risk in terms of chemical ingredients and materials selection
2) Recognize the limitations of hazard-only thinking when selecting building materials
3) Understand how to make comparisons of products based on ingredients, performance, cost and life cycle impacts
4) Identify the tools available to evaluate the safety of building products and materials

Introduction to Engineered Glazed Timber Curtain Wall

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

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.

Sound Control In Construction

02:30 PM - 03:30 PM

In this one-hour course, design professionals will gain practical knowledge of sound control and the many healthy and safety benefits it has for architects, builders, and occupants. It will discuss building code criteria and guidelines, including strategies to meet these requirements through various methods. By the end of this course, design professionals will be able to evaluate different sound control strategies and specify ones that best fit each project’s needs.
