Building Barrier-free Showers

10:15 am - 11:15 am

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.

Sintered Compact Surfaces for Building Facades

11:15 am - 12:15 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 but also 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. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely sintered compact surfaces that can be used for curtain walls, rain screens, siding applications, and other common wall systems for both residential and commercial buildings.
