8:00 am - 9:00 am AIA#:QWEB01, USGBC#:920014585 - Get Inspired! Design Smarter, Safer, and Greener with Innovation in Wood-Framed Construction
Presenter: Andrew M. Dingman
CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- Wood is a frequently overlooked building material for light-medium-commercial construction including mid-rise, multi-family, and mixed-use projects. This course features several North American examples that highlight the surprising capabilities of this natural resource. Many architects, engineers, and project owners often default to steel and concrete instead of wood for wall, floor, and roof assemblies. This course outlines: - common misconceptions and capabilities of code-approved wood applications. - the environmental and structural benefits of this sustainable natural resource. - the virtues of wood when engineered for pre-cut and pre-assembled components. - how wood applications integrate with building codes, construction techniques, and technical support. - how choosing wood first contributes to on-time and on-schedule projects with significant cost savings.
9:00 am - 10:00 am AIA#:ADFAST-001, USGBC#:0920010342 - Making Sense of Sealants
Presenter: Nicolas Choquet
CREDIT TYPE: HSW -- Participants will learn about the different families of sealants and how to choose the correct product for each application.

Presenter: Devin Darnell
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.
11:15 am - 12:15 pm AIA#:NeolithFacades, USGBC#:920015352 - Sintered Compact Surfaces for Building Facades
Presenter: Joel Asrael
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.
