Sintered Compact Surfaces Basics: Design, Application & Sustainability - Neolith01

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Materials used on exterior and interior surfaces need to withstand many elements, including water, scratched, high temperatures, UV, wind, etc. Choosing a material is certainly influenced by the ability to hold up over time but also by the available size and weight, maintenance, hygiene, bending properties, recyclability, VOC, not to mention the appearance and efficient and cost-effective installation. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely Sintered Compact Surfaces that can be used for a wide variety of application interior and exterior from countertops to curtain walls applications in both residential and commercial buildings.

Building Barrier-free Showers

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

Mandated requirements for ADA compliancy and demand from an aging population, is creating a
growing need for barrier-free bathrooms. Today’s ADA compliant bathroom no longer has to be utilitarian
or “institutional” in its design. Design options are enhanced through the use of tile and innovative
construction methods. The result is beautiful bathrooms that also adhere to ADA standards for
accessible design.
This seminar will examine ways in which barrier-free environments can be customized to include
various design elements while remaining ADA compliant. This seminar will also address why bonded
waterproofing technology lends itself to the construction requirements of barrier-free design.

Sound Control in Construction

02:10 PM - 03:10 PM

This course defines the importance of sound control in the building industry where proper design can help avoid Litigation & Remediation. We will discuss building code criteria including the International Building Code (IBC-1207) and the International Residential Code. We will Identify areas where sound control is necessary for wall & floor/ceiling assemblies. We will then offer an explanation of terminologies including: STC, IIC, NRC, Use Patterns and Flanking Sound. The mechanisms of sound transmission and its attenuation will be discussed including: Mass, Double Leaf Construction, Field Damped Mass, Decoupling, Unbalancing, Coincidence Effect and Sound Masking.

Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture

03:20 PM - 04:20 PM

In the macro critical path of project delivery, the installation of final floor finishes is one of the last items to occur prior to substantial completion. However, due to changes in adhesive formulations driven by concerns over indoor environmental quality, most project 09 flooring specifications require moisture testing before flooring can be installed on concrete slabs. Should/when those moisture tests fail, the project faces burdensome time delays, unexpected costs, or both.

High-Performance Modified Wood: Beauty Built to Last

04:20 PM - 05:20 PM

Wood is a top material choice in construction due to its beauty and longevity. But high demand has put a strain on this natural resource, especially for the timber with greatest durability like tropical hardwoods. Today, new technology allows for the use of responsibly-sourced fast-growing timber in wood modification that yields products with the same or greater durability as those overexploited hardwoods. This course provides an overview of the wood-modification process that results in a product that’s non-toxic, highly durable, Class-A Fire Rated, environment friendly, and ideal for use in indoor and outdoor applications. This course also explains how this Modified Wood contributes to LEED v4 certification.
