Sustainable Exterior Envelope

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

This course focuses 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.

Specify Today’s Hardwood Floors with Confidence

02:30 PM - 03:30 PM

With a long history of specifying hardwood floors, architects and builders understand the benefits and challenges of working with the material. There’s no doubt that occupants of residential and commercial buildings love the look and feel of hardwoods under their feet. But specifiers may presume that hardwood floors are more expensive and that an alternative product may install and repair easier. Architects may also be concerned that the wood is sustainably sourced.   Innovation in today’s solid-hardwood floors delivers renewed confidence to specifiers. This course will describe the floating hardwood floor and the solutions it brings to green building, to ease of installation and repair, and to beauty that will last for generations.

Biophilic Design for All: Affordable, Low-Maintenance Materials That Mimic Nature

03:40 PM - 04:40 PM

Most architects have heard about biophilic design and agree with the concept of bringing the outdoors inside. However, very few designers take purposeful steps to incorporate it into their plans. Designers may assume that biophilic design is expensive or high maintenance, reserved for only those high-end projects. One may assume that bringing nature inside is complicated and requires customization. An architect may assume that some projects don’t warrant biophilia, like a warehouse. In this one-hour course, we’ll address those assumptions that hold architects back. We’ll introduce a simulated-wood product that mimics nature and delivers that positive human response. You’ll see numerous design ideas and applications that exemplify economical and low maintenance solutions for any project type. At the end of the course, we think you’ll agree that biophilic design is obtainable for any project and every occupant.
