Sound Control in Construction 2018

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.

Sintered Compact Surfaces Basics: Design, Application & Sustainability

9:00 am - 10:00 am

Materials used on exterior and interior surfaces need to withstand many elements, including water, scratched, high temperatures, UV, wind, etc. Choosing a material is certainly influenced by the ability to hold up over time but also by the available size and weight, maintenance, hygiene, bending properties, recyclability, VOC, not to mention the appearance and efficient and cost-effective installation. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely Sintered Compact Surfaces that can be used for a wide variety of application interior and exterior from countertops to curtain walls applications in both residential and commercial buildings.

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

10:15 am - 11:15 am

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. Learning Objectives: • Describe how moisture impacts building durability and define the mechanics of moisture movement. • Identify common design details that can cause issues for moisture management. • Write better specifications for moisture control utilizing better and best methods and have ASTM standard to reference for flashing openings. • Understand the integration of a moisture control layer with exterior continuous insulation.

Building Barrier-free Showers

11:15 am - 12:15 pm

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.
