8:00 am - 9:00 am AIA#: WindsorExt1, USGBC#:920012039 - Wood Products on Exterior Envelope - Solutions to assure Stability, Durability & Sustainability.

Presenter: Dave Rogers

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.

9:00 am - 10:00 am AIA#:AG101, USGBC#:0920007717 - Coating of Aluminum Extrusions

Presenter: Taylor Coley

CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- Provides an overview of aluminum extrusion coatings and includes discussions on the aluminum extrusion process; a comparison of powder and liquid coatings; an overview of the chrome and the chrome-free pretreatment processes; and, the performance objectives of AAMA testing standards.

10:00 am - 10:15 am Break

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

Presenter: Carly Rocco

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#:TAM2015, USGBC#:0920017351 - Moisture Management for Multi-Family, Mix-Use and Light

Presenter: Joe Fong

CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- Moisture damage contributes to 90% of all building and building material failures; making the management of moisture key to building longevity. The course will discuss the movement of moisture, cover some keys design issues, a better and best solution for moisture control, and how to integrate moisture control with exterior continuous insulation. After the course participants will have more tools for wall detailing. Learning Objectives: • Describe how moisture impacts building durability and define the mechanics of moisture movement. • Identify common design details that can cause issues for moisture management. • Write better specifications for moisture control utilizing better and best methods and have ASTM standard to reference for flashing openings. • Understand the integration of a moisture control layer with exterior continuous insulation.
