How It’s Made: Today’s PVC

10:20 AM - 11:20 AM

PVC products have been around for 100 years. They’re common in the construction industry because of their durability and long life. But old PVC manufacturing practices still cause concern for some of today’s specifiers. This course will address those concerns head-on. We’ll talk about today’s manufacturing processes and how recycling is transforming the industry. You’ll see how PVC resin becomes a strong and beautiful product using the example of vinyl fencing. With the understanding of today’s regulations, collaboration, and green-building practices, you’ll have the confidence to specify today’s PVC products.

Challenges and Solutions in Bird-Friendly Glazing

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Cities across North America are adopting bird deterrence legislation. This course covers the most important aspects of bird-deterrent building such as architectural risk factors, current bird-friendly building requirements, and the science of why birds strike windows. This 360° approach will empower architects to design buildings that meet bird-friendly regulations in their area and avoid unpleasant surprises in the process. Participants will learn how to appropriately implement bird-deterrent solutions such as acid-etched glass and transparent UV markers. They will also gain strategies to combine these bird-safe measures with energy-efficient materials to meet their energy targets and green building goals.

Sustainable Exterior Envelope

03:10 PM - 04:10 PM

This course focuses on the effect biological and physical agents have on the wood substrate of the exterior building envelope. After reviewing these agents, you will learn how proper installation and best building practices can limit the exposure these agents can pose to your project. Durable wood substrates will also be discussed with a comparison of popular man-made durability agents used to further protect the exterior envelope.

Performance Criteria Considerations for Windows and Curtain Walls for Large Buildings

04:10 PM - 05:10 PM

The most common and costly problems associated with the in-service performance of the vertical building envelope of large buildings are related primarily with excessive air leakage and water intrusion. In particular, windows and curtain walls, as well as their interface with the adjacent wall construction, are determining elements in the performance of the vertical building envelope. Improved standards and design principles have contributed in significantly improving the performance of window and curtain wall systems, whether it is with respect to resistance to water penetration, air leakage resistance, wind load resistance or condensation resistance. The reality, however, is that many buildings of recent construction are still experiencing problems with the in-service performance of installed window and curtain wall systems. Typically, these problems are often the result of poor installation, fabrication and lack of adequate quality control. This presentation shall focus on evaluating the laboratory and field performance of windows and curtain walls of large buildings 1) during the early stages of construction to validate as-built design and 2) during later construction stages as a quality control measure.
