The Role of Commercial Steel Doors in Resilient Design

8:00 am - 9:00 am

Resiliency is a growing necessity. It is important to understand the impacts on the built environment resulting from natural and manmade disasters and disturbances and to design for those impacts now. Presented in this course is an overview of the benefits of using steel doors as part of a resilient design strategy for applications requiring resistance to blasts, tornadoes, and ballistics.

Intro to Moisture Mitigation

9:00 am - 10:00 am

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.

Fire-Retardant Treated Wood Program Description

10:15 am - 11:15 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.

Benefits of Ultra Low Permeability Concrete in the Building Envelope – An Integral Approach.

3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The exceptional durability of portland cement concrete is a major reason why it is the world’s most widely used construction material. But material limitations, design and construction practices, and severe exposure conditions can cause concrete to deteriorate, which may result in aesthetic, functional, or structural problems. The Portland Cement Association prescribes proper concrete coverage of reinforcing steel and a Low Permeability concrete mix design as the primary goals for “Best Practice”. A talented, seasoned contractor is the answer to the first…..Vapor Lock enhanced concrete may be a reasonable answer to the second.
