Structural Glazing / Insulating Glass - Design Considerations

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

Engineered solutions for integrated high-performance facades, fenestration and insulating glass systems.

A basic review of industry definitions, including facade, insulated glass, and weatherseal components.

The application of innovative materials to meet the design and efficiency requirements specified by the architectural community. Typical project processes in the design, testing, validation, and production of a curtain wall.

Vinyl in Design: The Material for21st Century Building & Construction

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Vinyl plays a major role in the design and construction of modern buildings. It contributes to sustainability, wellness and resilience of people and their communities.
This session will demonstrate the importance of achieving client performance goals using thoughtful, multi-attribute material selection criteria.
Learning Objectives:
1. How vinyl is made, most versatile plastic in construction
2. Three parts of sustainability, how resilience enables people and communities to bounce back
3. Understanding disclosure and optimization, selection criteria, hazard, exposure, risk
4. Role of materials in health and wellness
5. Industry improvements, best practice, aspirations for a sustainable future

Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

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.

Acoustic Door Assemblies and Their Role in Sound Control

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

Sound control is a critical element to a building’s design. How an occupant will use the space must be understood in order to deliver a healthy and functional environment free of noise. Is speech privacy important? Is this a learning environment? Does the office open to a manufacturing floor? We all think of the walls, ceiling, and floor when discussing sound attenuation. But we must not overlook the importance of an acoustic-door assembly. Without the proper acoustic door, the sound-control goals in an acoustic plan may not be met. This course will review healthy sound levels and how to test and identify target STC ratings. We’ll discuss the elements of the acoustic-door assembly and how the assembly addresses fire-ratings and ADA compliance, contributes to LEED certification and green building, and provides security for classified files and electronic data.

Understanding Advanced Wall Systems with Continuous Insulation

02:20 PM - 03:20 PM

This session explores evolving trends in building enclosure technology, and subsequent changes in energy efficient building design; with especial focus on the role of continuous exterior insulation (CI). The net energy savings realized in a properly insulated building are by now well understood, and these savings are increasingly being required by stringent local building and energy codes. Current building science research and field monitoring data will be presented, to demonstrate how the effective R value of various insulating materials perform and change in differing regional climates, temperature ranges, and seasonal conditions. Strategies for designing and constructing highly insulated and cost effective wall assemblies while still minimizing thermal bridging are also discussed.
