Canadian Hardwoods -Beauty, Durability and Sustainability.

08:05 AM - 09:05 AM

Canadian hardwood lumber and flooring provide architects with everything they need to create beautiful, practical and durable projects and accessories, while fulfilling the need and desire to meet sustainability and green building requirements. In this presentation, we will highlight that Canadian hardwoods are the material of choice to provide durability and natural elegance, as a renewable material for commercial and high end residential projects.

Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

09:10 AM - 10:10 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.

Sound Control In Construction

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

In this one-hour course, design professionals will gain practical knowledge of sound control and the many healthy and safety benefits it has for architects, builders, and occupants. It will discuss building code criteria and guidelines, including strategies to meet these requirements through various methods. By the end of this course, design professionals will be able to evaluate different sound control strategies and specify ones that best fit each project’s needs.

Sustainable Exterior Envelope

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

This course focus 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.

Working through the details: Storefront Vs. Curtain Wall

01:20 PM - 02:20 PM

This course will explain the differences between storefront and curtain wall designs and functions while exploring the areas of performance, cost, and applications. This session will allow the participant to discover new materials and methods, reinforcing the design intent while enhancing the architectural viewpoint.

Designing For Life Safety - Fire

02:20 PM - 03:20 PM

When considering the building enclosure, fire safety is an important design factor and needs to be considered hand-in-hand with energy code requirements. By developing a better understanding of how the material and systems testing standards for fire safety can impact the overall design, architects and designers can confidently and freely design spaces that could save lives in the event of fire.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 different standards. Participants will review how the selection building components such as insulation, air/water resistive barriers, claddings finishes, can affect the fire performance of an assembly, and identify solutions and common paths for compliance.
