Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture

08:05 AM - 09:05 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.

09:10 AM

Building Facade Glazing: Specify the right sealants in structural and non-structural applications.

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

During our Building Façade Glazing training, 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 silicone sealants. And finally, the importance of surface preparation before sealing joints.

Acoustic Door Assemblies and Their Role in Sound Control

10:30 AM - 11:30 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.

Light and Us an inspirational exploration of our evolution under Light, Biophilic and WELL Design

12:50 PM - 01:50 PM

During the course of human evolution exposure to natural lighting has conditioned neurological stimuli that regulate numerous biological functions. Circadian Rhythm, rooted in the Latin for “around the day”, is a term describing the entrained cyclical processes used to sustain most living organisms. The changing spectral distribution characteristics of the sun and the onset of night have been a key influence on how the retina has evolved to become a primary source of sensory stimulus effecting the production and inhibition of hormones essential to Circadian balance. Disruption of Circadian Rhythm (our natural cycles) can have deleterious effects on our health and wellbeing, particularly our patterns of sleep. Many of our built environments have created unnatural conditions for its occupants. Research has shown that poor illumination, of the spaces we occupy, can contribute to the disruption of our natural cycles. With the advent of Solid-State Lighting (LED) and “nature emulating design” we can transform the environments that we occupy. This course explores ways of applying “Circadian Balanced Illumination™, Biophilic Design and WELL Building lighting principles to invigorate the human condition and benefit our cognition, health and wellbeing
