  Protecting the Built Environment from Formosan Termites


GRATUIT

Description

Many architects, engineers, and builders don’t consider the threat of Formosan termites. They therefore leave the building owner and future occupants with the ongoing task of using chemical pesticides and/or repairing significant damage.   Do you build in the termite zone? Domestic subterranean termites exist throughout the mainland.  Now much of the United States is susceptible to Formosan termite infestation, which has been expanding since 1975. Any new build within this termite zone should incorporate the steps to provide long-term protection against Formosan and native American subterranean termites.   This course will describe the Formosan termite and the damage it can cause. We’ll review the preventative but long-term processes that many building owners take to prevent infestation. Most importantly, this course will...

  Proactively Address Moisture in Roof Assemblies


GRATUIT

Description

Moisture within roof assemblies, or the concern over such, has recently become a major focus of discussion for the design/build community due to project schedule delays and disruptions to businesses and institutions. Despite the disruption to projects this issue causes, there remains significant misunderstandings across the design build industry regarding product warranties, field moisture tests, and just how long it takes concrete “to dry”. During this presentation, we will discuss common terms associated with concrete that are often misused and misunderstood. Further, the various sources of roof system moisture will be identified with clear recommendations given as to how the specifying professional can proactively address these sources through the construction documents.

  Making Sense of Sealants


GRATUIT

Description

Participants will learn about the different families of sealants and how to choose the correct product for each application. We will discuss the effect of UV light on sealants and the difference between structural or non structural silicon sealant. And finally, the importance of surface preparation before sealing joints.

  Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture


GRATUIT

Description

In the macro critical path of project delivery, installation of final floor finishes is one of the last items to occur prior to substantial completion. However, due to changes in adhesive formulations driven by concerns over indoor environmental quality, most project 09 flooring specifications require moisture testing before flooring can be installed on concrete slabs. Should/when those moisture tests fail, the project faces burdensome time delays, unexpected costs, or both. During this presentation, we will: (1) give significant discussion to the importance of “design intent” and how losing focus on what the owner expects can lead to potentially catastrophic, consequences (2) examine in depth several misconceptions embedded within the AEC associated with field moisture testing and project owner and design...
