The 5 levels of finish: The fastest and most cost-effective way to achieve a Level 5

8:00 am - 9:00 am

Most architects know drywall as the the product choice for quality wall, ceiling, and partition systems in residential, institutional, and commercial structures. However, many architects, engineers, and project owners are unaware of the natural benefits of drywall’s primary component — gypsum. The mineral gypsum has been used as a building product for decades and is primarily used today as gypsum board (drywall). This course describes the properties of gypsum, the similarities of natural and synthetic gypsum, the applications and benefits of gypsum-panel products in construction, and gypsum's numerous environmental-benefits.

Get Inspired! Design Smarter, Safer, and Greener with Innovation in Wood-Framed Construction

9:00 am - 10:00 am

Wood is a frequently overlooked building material for light-medium-commercial construction including mid-rise, multi-family, and mixed-use projects. This course features several North American examples that highlight the surprising capabilities of this natural resource. Many architects, engineers, and project owners often default to steel and concrete instead of wood for wall, floor, and roof assemblies. This course outlines: - common misconceptions and capabilities of code-approved wood applications. - the environmental and structural benefits of this sustainable natural resource. - the virtues of wood when engineered for pre-cut and pre-assembled components. - how wood applications integrate with building codes, construction techniques, and technical support. - how choosing wood first contributes to on-time and on-schedule projects with significant cost savings.
