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.

Intro to Moisture Mitigation

10:15 am - 11:15 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.

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.

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.

Ethics and the Environment: Understanding the Architect’s Intent, Process, and the Impact on Others

3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The topic of ethics has never been more prevalent for today’s architects, especially in our obligation to the environment. With new data constantly published about the human toll on today’s world, the construction industry must take purposeful steps to not only reduce the environmental impact in the building process but also promote a sustainable design that will last for generations. This one-hour presentation will review the AIA Code of Ethics including the obligations to the environment. We’ll discuss how our intent, the design and building process, and all impacted stakeholders should be considered to meet our ethical obligations. Five key areas will be addressed including energy, water, materials, ecosystem, and climate change. We’ll have an open discussion about the influences that affect our decisions in these five areas and how considering our intent, process, and those involved can shape our own code of ethics.
