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.

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. 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.

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

3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

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.
