Fire-Retardant Treated Wood and the International Building Code

9:00 am - 10:00 am

This in-depth presentation on fire-retardant treated wood (FRTW) focuses on its characteristics, properties, and performance in a fire as well as its preparation, treatment, inspection, and labeling. Fire tests, standards, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification in LEED projects and building code requirements related to FRTW will be covered. Details and examples will be provided on where FRTW is used and what impact it's use has on construction and insurance costs.In addition, International Building Code sections referencing fire-retardant treated wood will be discussed. Technical literature will be provided to all attendees.

Sintered Compact Surfaces for Building Facades

2:15 pm - 3:15 pm

Materials used on building facades need to withstand many things, including water, wind, sunlight, and sometimes severe weather conditions. They also need to hold up to the effects of people who may inadvertently or even intentionally cause damage. Choosing a material to use for a facade is certainly influenced by the ability to hold up over time under all of these conditions. It is also influenced by the available size and weight, not to mention the appearance, of the material. Being able to install it in a manner that is efficient and cost effective usually rounds out the criteria for selecting a building material for building facades. Not surprisingly, there are number of different materials that have been available to select from, some of which have been around a long time, and others that are relatively new. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely sintered compact surfaces, which have been born in the last decade. As it is becoming better known, it is becoming more popular in the United States and Canada thanks to its ability to provide superior long-term performance for basically the same cost as other common facade cladding products. Sintered compact surfaces today are finding their way into curtain walls, rainscreens, siding applications, and other common wall systems for both residential and commercial buildings.

Intro to Moisture Mitigation

3:30 pm - 4:30 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.
