Mass Timber Termite Barriers & Waterproofing in Warm/Wet Regions

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

With the high growth potential of Mass Timber structures in regions with heavy termite pressure, studies by Mississippi State University and the US Forest Service point to the possibility of termite damage and water absorption. Termite damage and water absorption is a concern. However our purpose today is to inform you of a physical, non-pesticide termite and water barrier protecting almost the entire building envelope. Research on this termite and water barrier started 21 years ago with Texas A&M University entomology scientists. The research has since expanded to a total of 7 university and governmental entomology laboratories. Incremental cost of this physical barrier is minimized, because the termite barrier is built into an upgraded waterproofing barrier. This course describes the development and use of this waterproofing / termite barrier, which is supplemented by screen and stone termite barriers which are in use around the Pacific Rim, to create structures with termite barrier around the building

Designing for Fire Safety - Complying with NFPA 285 Test Standard for Exterior Walls

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

When considering the building enclosure, fire safety is an important design factor and needs to be considered hand-in-hand with energy code requirements. The NFPA 285 Standard Fire Test Method for Evaluation of Fire Propagation Characteristics of Exterior Wall Assemblies Containing Combustible Components is a common consideration with modern building assemblies that use combustible materials. This presentation will review common fire standards including NFPA 285 test standard. It will outline the criteria for compliance, as well as identify triggers and contributors under the standard. The presentation will review how the selection building components such as insulation, air/water resistive barriers and claddings, can affect the fire performance of an assembly, and identify solutions and common paths for compliance.

Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

10:20 AM - 11:20 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.
