Sound Control in Construction 18

8:00 am - 9:00 am

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.

The Next Generation Bathroom - The Evolution of Bathroom Design

2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Today's bathroom has transformed from basic into beautiful. These areas now include large barrier-free spaces, tiled showers, steam showers, and soaking tubs. The flexibility in design is enhanced through the use of tile which combines hygienic virtues with versatility in décor. The result is glamorous bathrooms that are both durable and highly functional. Moisture management is the foundation of a successful tiled bathroom. Moisture sensitive construction materials must be protected from water and vapor penetration. Leaks and mold continue to pose serious problems for the construction industry. This seminar will compare traditional waterproofing systems with modern waterproofing technology to show how tiled showers have evolved. The fundamentals of both approaches, including proper design, execution, and function will be presented, with close attention paid to common errors. The benefits of bonded waterproofing technology and how it has improved tiled showers will be stressed.
