7:45 am - 8:00 am Registration & Breakfast

8:00 am - 9:00 am AIACESGU103, USGBC#:0920008002 - Integrally Troweled Cure & Polish Concrete

Presenter: Fred Stiles

CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- This program addresses the need to properly cure and finish concrete. Discusses the current ACI recommendations and the new technology that allows dramatic time savings while Increasing quality of the finished product. Education in advanced concrete technology with the use of the power trowel alone to create a unique architectural finished product. Education in advanced methods to expose aggregate and ultra high gloss are also shown. This unique system also eliminates moisture loss which reduces cracking and seals the surface so effectively there is no additional need for moisture mitigation

9:00 am - 10:00 am AIA#:WindsorExt1, USGBC#:920012039 - Wood Products on Exterior Envelope - Solutions to assure Stability, Durability & Sustainability.

Presenter: Corbin Rinehart

CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- How do you increase the durability of your exterior envelope? What are considered today’s best installation practices? What are the differences between popular wood treatment methods? Windsor Mill’s AIA continuing education program touches on these issues and more, helping you design a exterior envelope that is durable and healthy for the home.

10:00 am - 10:15 am Break

10:15 am - 11:15 am AIA#:005, USGBC#: - BURSI – Single Ply Roofing Systems

Presenter: Joel Asrael

CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- During this presentation, attendees will receive an introduction to the different material types, properties and characteristics of TPO, PVC and EPDM roofing membranes. They will gain a better understanding of the different system applications and performance characteristics. Upon completion of the class, attendees will be able to identify the flashing designs for the different roof assemblies available and have the ability to match system and installation methods when considering which system would best fit their design criteria.

11:15 am - 12:15 pm AIA#:NeolithFacades, USGBC#:920015352 - Sintered Compact Surfaces for Building Facades

Presenter: Travis Conrad

CREDIT TYPE: HSW --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.

12:15 pm - 1:15 pm Lunch

1:15 pm - 2:15 pm AIA#:QWEB01, USGBC#:920014585 - Get Inspired! Design Smarter, Safer, and Greener with Innovation in Wood-Framed Construction

Presenter: Andrew M. Dingman

CREDIT TYPE: HSW --Wood is a frequently overlooked building material for light-medium-commercial construction including mid-rise, multi-family, and mixed-use projects. This course features several North American examples that highlight the surprising capabilities of this natural resource. Many architects, engineers, and project owners often default to steel and concrete instead of wood for wall, floor, and roof assemblies. This course outlines: - common misconceptions and capabilities of code-approved wood applications. - the environmental and structural benefits of this sustainable natural resource. - the virtues of wood when engineered for pre-cut and pre-assembled components. - how wood applications integrate with building codes, construction techniques, and technical support. - how choosing wood first contributes to on-time and on-schedule projects with significant cost savings.
