Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

08:10 AM - 09:10 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.

The Benefits of Graphics in the Built Environment

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

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.

Building Envelope Design: Understanding Codes, Best Practices and Tie-in Detailing

02:30 PM - 03:30 PM

Building envelope systems and continuous air barriers have gained prevalence in the marketplace with inclusion into building and energy codes over the last decade. This presentation aims to bring awareness of code requirements as they relate to building envelop components and systems, and shed light on common material misconceptions. Additionally, this presentation will focus on the all-important tie-in junctions which have been known to cause confusion resulting in leaky buildings and system failure. We will discuss tie-in design considerations, known product incompatibilities, as well as tie-in installation best practices.
