The Benefits of Graphics in the Built Environment

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

Most of us are unaware of the important role that graphics, art, and signage play in the built environment. Graphics set the tone when we walk into a space. The feeling we get when we see a wall mural in the lobby can determine how much time we want to spend with the company. Images of the company’s research scientists, a hospital’s compassionate caregivers, or the mouthwatering food at a restaurant trigger that positive first impression: •This company values innovation and research. •I’m in good hands after my surgery. •Everything on the menu looks fabulous. Signage also plays a critical role. Reinforcing the logo, ensuring visitors don’t get lost, and providing safety should not be overlooked. This course will review the benefits and types of large graphics and the industry applications of each.

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

11:30 AM - 12:30 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.
