Daylighting by Design

Thursday, August 20, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT

 This course discusses the benefits of a thoughtfully-designed light control system and how to make it work for your project's natural-lighting and shading needs. The discussion emphases implementing design methods including specification of technologies such as sun shade and canopy systems that creates useful and aesthetically-pleasing daylight systems. Designing to not only minimize solar heat gain and sunlight, but to successfully repurpose it for great environmental and aesthetic function. LEED credits associated with specifying sun shade and daylighting canopy systems are also discussed.

Innovations in Hand Dryers: Improvements and Impacts on Sustainability

Wednesday, August 28, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT

  In this one-hour course, we’ll discuss the evolution of electric hand dryers and how today’s high-speed, energy efficient dryers minimize impacts on the environment while providing a speedy and efficient user experience with lower operation and maintenance costs. We’ll also explore an array of high-speed hand dryer features including HEPA filter, antimicrobial technology, ADA compliance, maintenance indicator and sound and speed controls to address the unique needs of various application environments. Learners will also gain insight into how specifying high-speed, energy efficient hand dryers contributes to green initiatives.

Rethink Water Heating

Friday, August 30, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT

 The challenge for plumbing design professionals is finding the right balance between performance and efficiency in water heating systems. A review of plumbing code requirements and insights into specification considerations will be shared. This course will identify types of water heating technologies with a focus on Electric Tankless Water Heater (ETWH) function and design.

Low VOC Traffic-Bearing Membrane for Vehicular Decks

Friday, August 2, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT

In this course you will learn about the four scenarios when considering coating of vehicular decking.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Deck preparation between the perimeter of the repair area and the new concrete, a cold joint will occur. This should be sealed with one-part polyurethane sealant

2. Coating Selection one - part system is that it eliminates any mixing error, with the exception of the primer.

3. Application - most important screens in the presentation. The application of the coating system determines the mill thickness of each coat.

4. Maintenance and cost - deck should be inspected annually for damage and repairs made and discuss the actual cost of the deck repairs or planning a new one.

Enduring Beauty: High Performing Open Jointed Cladding Systems

Wednesday, August 7, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT

 This course encourages participants to think outside the box and consider using polymer cladding as a material to create aesthetic, enduring, and moisture resistant rainscreens that will better protect buildings and its occupants. We will discuss other more commonly used products and the issues faced with each. We will also consider life cycle costs of various cladding options, including polymer. Finally, participants will leave with a thorough understanding of how to install polymer extrusions as cladding. We will explore doing so on different substrates, detailing around openings, transitions between differing cladding materials and how to handle joints between cladding components with the goal of using polymer as a resource to promote health, safety, and welfare of both people and the environment.

Tuesday, August 27, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT

This course outlines the dangers posed by Mother Nature and the science, codes, testing and methods in which to build and combat these forces.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Learn About the Science Behind Thermal, Air, Vapor and water control for Steel stud construction

2. Understanding Rainscreens and How They Enhance Building Design

3. Discover How POLYISO and ACM/MCM Meet Requirements and Outperform Traditional Methods

4. Interpret the Code Requirements for Building Envelope Design and Performance
