Reviving the Lost Art of Moldings

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

This course examines historic moldings to appreciate the genius behind their design and application. It will explore the reality of modern wood resources and the direct relationship with Today's manufacturing process, as well as the use of historic moldings in Today's real world applications.

Introduction to Engineered Glazed Timber Curtain Wall

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

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.

Get Inspired! Design Smarter, Safer, and Greener with Innovation in Wood-Framed Construction

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Wood is a frequently overlooked building material for light-medium-commercial construction including mid-rise, multi-family, and mixed-use projects. This course features several North American examples that highlight the surprising capabilities of this natural resource.

Many architects, engineers, and project owners often default to steel and concrete instead of wood for wall, floor, and roof assemblies.

This course outlines:

- common misconceptions and capabilities of code-approved wood applications.

- the environmental and structural benefits of this sustainable natural resource.

- the virtues of wood when engineered for pre-cut and pre-assembled components.

- how wood applications integrate with building codes, construction techniques, and technical support.

- how choosing wood first contributes to on-time and on-schedule projects with significant cost savings.

An Introduction to Magnesium Oxide Board

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

MGO Board represents a quantum shift in sheet building technology and has been designed to replace plywood, OSB, fiber cement and gypsum based sheet building products. The proprietary design and formula offers superior structural and high-impact strength, stiffness, durability and fire-resistance.

MGO Board ingredients are 100% inorganic, resulting in a dimensionally stable building product with unparalleled resistance to environmental exposure, thus allowing you to build more for less, in a any season.

Benefits of Ultra Low Permeability Concrete in the Building Envelope – An Integral Approach.

02:10 PM - 03:10 PM

The exceptional durability of portland cement concrete is a major reason why it is the world’s most widely used construction material. But material limitations, design and construction practices, and severe exposure conditions can cause concrete to deteriorate, which may result in aesthetic, functional, or structural problems. The Portland Cement Association prescribes proper concrete coverage of reinforcing steel and a Low Permeability concrete mix design as the primary goals for “Best Practice”. A talented, seasoned contractor is the answer to the first…..Vapor Lock enhanced concrete may be a reasonable answer to the second.

Fire-Retardant-Treated Wood in Today's Building Code

03:20 PM - 04:20 PM

This session is a discussion of fire-retardant-treated wood's technical characteristics and building code-related applications. Emphasis is placed on the testing and labeling required by the International Building Code. The building code, as with many products, regulates the use of wood in construction. Two broad categories separate materials: combustible and noncombustible. Codes limit the applications of combustible materials on the basis of fire and life safety. The question is then, are there options available to using wood in lieu of a noncombustible material. Fire Retardant Treated Wood (FRTW) provides that option. Codes recognize FRTW for many applications where a noncombustible material is mandated.
