Up to 8 AIA HSW
Valid for State License

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#:NeolithFacades, USGBC#:920015352 - Sintered Compact Surfaces for Building Facades

Presenter: THe Size Surfaces USA

Speaker: 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.

10:00 am - 10:15 am Break

10:15 am - 11:15 am AIA#:005, USGBC#:0920014234 - BURSI – Single Ply Roofing Systems

Presenter: Johns Manville

Speaker: Dwight Stone

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

Presenter: Tamlyn

Speaker: 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.

2:15 pm - 3:15 pm AIA#:IEM1011, USGBC#:0920011192 - Factory Prefinishing of Exterior Materials

Presenter: Woodtone

Speaker: Cale Kids

CREDIT TYPE: LU -- Course info: Siding and exterior cladding can be factory finished, which provides up to a 30 year finish warranty, and opportunities for interesting finishes. Learn why specifiers and designers are increasingly adding a specification for factory finishing to meet the demands from their clients for beautiful exteriors with low/no maintenance on a wide range of materials.

3:15 pm - 3:30 pm Break

3:30 pm - 4:30 pm AIA#:AIACES101, USGBC#:0920014232 - Grind Hone and Polish Concrete

Presenter: New Green Umbrella

Speaker: Mark Hurshman

CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- At the end of this course, participant will understand the different Concrete Polishing Systems, Discuss Moisture Issues, Long Term Maintenance and LEED Points and be able to Specify Flooring and Finishing Options.

4:30 pm - 5:30 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.
