7:45 am - 8:00 am Registration & Breakfast
8:00 am - 9:00 am AIA#:AIACESGU103, USGBC#:0920008002 - Integrally Troweled Cure & Polish Concrete
Presenter: New Green Umbrella
Speaker: 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#:MAP 025A, USGBC#:0920015394 - Intro to Moisture Mitigation
Presenter: MAPEI Corporation
Speaker: Mike Granatowski
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.
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: Carly Rocco
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#: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.
