Utilizing Prefabrication to Improve the Quality of Ornamental Rails in Commercial & Residential Construction

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

This course will discuss the overall advantages of choosing a custom-fabricated railing system built 100% off-site, compared to off-the-shelf railing products or locally-fabricated rails. In addition to looking at the practical considerations of how prefabrication can improve overall product quality, visual appearance, installation times and budget, this course also identifies some ways to address health, safety, and building occupant welfare.

Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture

10:20 AM - 11:20 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.
