Elevator Technology where it`s been, where it`s going

10:15   - 11:15  

With urbanization on the rise, the vertical transportation industry is challenged more than ever to provide eco‐efficient, cost‐saving, and space‐saving solutions. This session will cover the history of elevator technology and compare conventional applications with today's technological advancements, enabling attendees to critique the risks and disadvantages of dated technology and identify the advantages of newer technology. In particular, attendees will learn about both recent developments and future trends concerning machine‐room‐less (MRL) elevators. The presentation will address design benefits, installation and ownership costs, and LEED contributions. Learning Objectives: - ANALYZE THE RISKS AND DRAWBACKS ASSOCIATED WITH TRADITIONAL ELEVATOR TECHNOLOGY - EXPLAIN THE DEVELOPMENT AND FUNCTIONALITY OF MRL ELEVATORS - EVALUATE THE COST AND SPACE SAVINGS ASSOCIATED WITH MRL ELEVATORS ALONG WITH THEIR ADVANTAGES FOR SUSTAINABILITY - IDENTIFY THE FUTURE TRENDS IN ELEVATOR TECHNOLOGY

Sintered Compact Surfaces for Building Facades

11:15   - 12:15  

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.

Intro to Moisture Mitigation

1:15   - 2:15  

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.
