Semi-underground waste management solution

8:00 am - 9:00 am

Solid Waste & Recycling – The Semi-Underground AdvantageFor the past 24-years, semi-underground containers for solid waste & recycling collection have shifted the paradigm of traditional waste and recycling systems around the world. This course focuses on the many advantages of semi-underground collection, and the benefits that they bring from a site design perspective. We will focus on the key value features of appearance, convenience, and capacity. We will further elaborate on how these key features can increase your available building space, allow for additional parking amenities, create better traffic flow, and allow for more landscaping opportunities, all while creating a more useable and safer waste and recycling collection system. And did we mention that semi-underground systems can contribute to your LEED designation while lowering your capital and operating costs?

Resiliency is a growing necessity. It is important to understand the impacts on the built environment resulting from natural and manmade disasters and disturbances and to design for those impacts now. Presented in this course is an overview of the benefits of using steel doors as part of a resilient design strategy for applications requiring resistance to blasts, tornadoes, and ballistics.

Shining Light on EPDs - Comparing the Environmental Performance of Building Products

2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Over the past few years, demand for tools like Environmental Product Declarations has been growing among the green building industry. Primarily intended for a specialized audience, life cycle assessments and their results displayed in standardized documents named EPDs are out in the open for everyone to see. However, EPDs are not mere documentation and are very technical. Green Building Programs, such as LEED, requiring EPDs for credit achievement have forced unspecialized professionals to understand it. This course is intended to give you the tools you need to get your head around EPDs and be able to compare them if needed.
