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

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

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.

Whole Building Ventilation: Providing Healthy, Comfortable & Energy Efficient Solutions

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

The proven best way to save energy on heating and cooling is to make buildings more airtight. Airtight buildings are more comfortable, durable, resilient and affordable. By including balanced ventilation with heat recovery, occupants gets fresh, filtered air delivered at all times while continuously removing odors, moisture, CO2 and other contaminants.

This informative presentation will describe how to ventilate an airtight building and provide superior indoor air quality, comfort and energy efficiency.

At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Understand the advantages and weaknesses of supply-only, exhaust-only, and balanced ventilation systems
2. Learn how heat recovery ventilation enables a comfortable and healthy environment
3. Understand HRV/ERV’s role in building an energy efficient home
4. Learn how to evaluate and choose the most effective HRV/ERV system

While designing and building his own very low-energy, high-performance home, architect John Rockwell became a Technical Sales Engineer with Swiss-owned Zehnder America, a world leader in providing superior indoor climate solutions.

A confirmed building science nerd, John received his Bachelor of Architecture from Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston and his Master of Architecture from the University of Miami. In addition to his former architecture practice, his career has included teaching, municipal clean energy management, utility-funded weatherization, building science consulting and Passive House design.

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

03:20 PM - 04:20 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.
