8:00 am - 9:00 am AIA#:005, USGBC#: - BURSI – Roofing System Selection and Design (Low-Slope)

Presenter: Brandon Mark

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.

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#:SCHL3A, USGBC#:0920012236 - The Uncoupling Principle

Presenter: Andy Gallio

CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- This seminar will examine the Uncoupling Principle, which is now recognized in the Tile Council of America's 2001 Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation. Review the history behind the Uncoupling Principle and examine the evolution of tile setting techniques, along with the benefits and limitations of each stage of development. The individual functions that are inherent to an uncoupling system will be discussed and the major implications for tile and stone installations revealed. At the end of this program, the participant will be able to: 1) comprehend the basics of the uncoupling principle and its relationship to the tile and stone industry; 2) recognize new areas of installation that can be attained through the utilization of an uncoupling system; and 2) interpret and apply the new details and applications found in the current TCA Handbook.

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#:SPF201, USGBC#:0920010268 - Spray Foam in Commercial Design

Presenter: Chris Bring

CREDIT TYPE: HSW --Participants of this course will learn about the types of polyurethane spray foams in the market and how they can be incorporated into commercial construction projects to create high performance building. · Participants can describe the effect of the building code on spray foam insulation. · Participants can describe the effect of spray foam on the indoor environment. · Participants can explain the impact of spray foam on a building’s energy performance. · Participants can explain the life cycle analysis of spray foam and payback periods.

2:15 pm - 3:15 pm AIA#:WindsorExt1, USGBC#:920012039 - Wood Products on Exterior Envelope - Solutions to assure Stability, Durability & Sustainability.

Presenter: Lindsey Grove

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.

3:15 pm - 3:30 pm Break
