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

10:15 am - 11:15 am

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.

Sintered Compact Surfaces Basics: Design, Application & Sustainability

11:15 am - 12:15 pm

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.

Managing Condensation and Thermal Performance with Continuous Insulation

2:15 pm - 3:15 pm

Building codes and green building standards are continuing to raise the bar on energy efficiency and high performance in buildings. In wood-framed buildings designing for thermal and moisture management in wall cavities, as well as the air tightness of the building enclosure, are all core components to creating advanced building enclosures. This presentation will discuss the need for exterior insulation to manage heat transfer and reduce condensation in exterior walls by providing step-by-step examples of how to determine the amount of continuous insulation required to meet prescriptive code requirements depending on climate zone.
