American Hardwoods and their Role in Carbon Neutral Design

10:15 am - 11:15 am

This is an hour long course that begins with a look at Hardwoods' basics. It then presents the science surrounding hardwoods; the significant role they play in the environment and finally, as a material choice, discusses their importance in sustainable building. At the conclusion of the session attendees can be confident knowing that when they choose North American hardwoods, they are selecting a quintessentially green material that is ever-renewing, abundant and sustainable.

Building Barrier-free Showers (ADA)

1:15 pm - 2:15 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.

Sound Control in Construction

4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

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 International Building Code (IBC-1207) and International Residential Code.We will Identify areas where sound control is necessary in 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.
