Gypsum An Environment-Friendly Building Product

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.

Geothermal Heating and Cooling a Renewable Energy Source

9:00 am - 10:00 am

ClimateMaster is proud to bring you this AIA accredited Lunch and learn that will cover several critical topics surrounding our industry today in the world of geothermal heating and cooling. You will learn the basic principles of the geothermal heat pump technology and we will discuss some of the misconceptions that often arise in today's market. You will walk away with an understanding of how and why geothermal heat pumps systems are so incredibly energy efficient and gain a general understanding of how the four basic systems are designed and work for each job application. One of the largest growing technologies in the industry is the hybrid/geothermal heat pump systems. I will elaborate on the hybrid/geothermal heat pump system and explain how it not only gives you the high energy efficiency savings but how this system also gives the owner/user significant savings during the initial installation of the system while providing high energy efficiency and capturing tax incentives for the total cost of the hybrid/geothermal heat pump system. In closing, I will demonstrate to you in a case study of actual energy consumption differences shown between geothermal heat pump systems and VRF (variable flow refrigerant) system on the National Headquarters Office Building for ASHRAE in Atlanta, GA.

Building Barrier-free Showers

10:15 am - 11:15 am

Mandated requirements for ADA compliancy and demand from an aging population, is creating a growing need for barrier-free bathrooms. Today’s ADA compliant bathroom no longer has to be utilitarian or “institutional” in its design. Design options are enhanced through the use of tile and innovative construction methods. The result is beautiful bathrooms that also adhere to ADA standards for accessible design. This seminar will examine ways in which barrier-free environments can be customized to include various design elements while remaining ADA compliant. This seminar will also address why bonded waterproofing technology lends itself to the construction requirements of barrier-free design.

Moisture Management for Multi-Family, Mix-Use and Light Commercial

1:15 pm - 2:15 pm

Moisture damage contributes to 90% of all building and building material failures; making the management of moisture key to building longevity. The course will discuss the movement of moisture, cover some keys design issues, a better and best solution for moisture control, and how to integrate moisture control with exterior continuous insulation. After the course participants will have more tools for wall detailing.

Intro to Moisture Mitigation

2:15 pm - 3:15 pm

An in-depth understanding of moisture issues in concrete slabs and the deleterious effect of a high moisture vapor emission rate (MVER) on flooring finishes. The presentation will address “sick building syndrome” caused by excessive concrete moisture vapor emissions; the various industry-approved methods for testing of MVER and for generating accurate data; conditions that generate excessive moisture in slabs and how to resolve them; how MVER barrier technology works, and how and when to specify it; and ICRI’s certification program for moisture-testing technicians – the only certification program in the industry.
