7:45 am - 8:00 am Registration & Breakfast
8:00 am - 9:00 am AIA#:Soundatten18, USGBC#:0920007666 - Sound Control in Construction 2018
Presenter: Homasote Company
Speaker: Chuck McPherson
CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- This course defines the importance of sound control in the building industry where proper design can help avoid Litigation & Remediation. We will discuss building code criteria including the International Building Code (IBC-1207) and the International Residential Code. We will Identify areas where sound control is necessary for wall & floor/ceiling assemblies. We will then offer an explanation of terminologies including: STC, IIC, NRC, Use Patterns and Flanking Sound. The mechanisms of sound transmission and its attenuation will be discussed including: Mass, Double Leaf Construction, Field Damped Mass, Decoupling, Unbalancing, Coincidence Effect and Sound Masking.
9:00 am - 10:00 am AIA#:WindsorExt1, USGBC#:920012039 - Wood Products on Exterior Envelope - Solutions to assure Stability, Durability & Sustainability.
Presenter: Windsor Mill
Speaker: Brian Bunt
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 – Roofing System Selection and Design (Low-Slope)
Presenter: Johns Manville
Speaker: Dwight Stone
CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- • Gain a better understanding of the different system applications and performance characteristics. • Gain a better understanding of what questions to ask during the design phase of a roofing project. • Understand the difference between wind speed and wind uplift and gain an appreciation for factors that influence wind uplift calculations. • Review primary code considerations and how different roofing materials can meet specific requirements.
11:15 am - 12:15 pm AIA#:SCHL11A, USGBC#:920014972 - Building Barrier-free Showers
Presenter: Schluter Systems
Speaker: Steve Brasington
CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- Mandated requirements for ADA compliancy and demand from an aging population, is creating a growing need for barrier-free bathrooms. Today’s ADA compliant bathroom no longer has to be utilitarian or “institutional” in its design. Design options are enhanced through the use of tile and innovative construction methods. The result is beautiful bathrooms that also adhere to ADA standards for accessible design. This seminar will examine ways in which barrier-free environments can be customized to include various design elements while remaining ADA compliant. This seminar will also address why bonded waterproofing technology lends itself to the construction requirements of barrierfree design.
12:15 pm - 1:15 pm Lunch
1:15 pm - 2:15 pm AIA#:MRIL1411, USGBC#:0920007633 - The Solar Ready Roof: Optimize the Design
Presenter: S-5! Metal Roof Innovations, Ltd.
Speaker: Shelly Higgins
CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- In this one hour course, you will learn about solar system basics including terminology, the various components of a solar system and ideal times for system review. We will discuss various roof applications and conclude by learning about optimized solar design.
2:15 pm - 3:15 pm AIA#:MAP 025A, USGBC#:0920015394 - Intro to Moisture Mitigation
Presenter: MAPEI Corporation
Speaker: Jere Street
CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- 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.
