    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW/LU Credit Hour | Course # SDT110 | AIA Provider: Carlisle Construction Materials | Presenter: Alan Jorzak

    Course Description:

    In this program the participants will learn the physical performance advantages of fleece membranes that enable them to resist the forces of mother nature such as wind, hail, rain, and cold. In addition they will learn the performance advantages of urethane adhesives that eliminate the dependence on solvents with VOCs or asphalt derived from foreign sources of oil. Several re-roofing advantages afforded by fleece membranes will be covered where you can re-use existing roofing systems and minimize landfill waste. Multiple-ply membrane options utilizing highly reflective TPO or extremely weatherable EPDM as the cap sheet will also be covered.

    Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design  (ISL03C)
    Maggiano's Little Italy

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW/ LU credit hour | AIA Course ID #: ISL03C | AIA Provider: ISE Logik Industries, Inc. | Presenter: Dean Craft

    Course Description:

    Few aspects of the design process are conducted in “silos” as disassociated from one another as how many projects approach interior concrete slab specifications and subsequent flooring specification sections. This is not done intentionally, rather it is by-product of lack of coordination, and fundamental misunderstanding, between those involved with the structural elements and those involved with the aesthetic and finishing elements. During this presentation, we will discuss sustainability and what it means; drawing the attendee into a clear discussion of how sustainability relates to LEED, Lean Construction, Green Building, and process improvement. Inconsistencies with current specification processes related to concrete moisture as compared to the tenets of sustainability will be exposed, with clear recommendations given as to how the specifying professional can resolve those disconnects.

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this course, the design professional will be able to:

    1. Identify the fundamental characteristics of sustainable design
    2. Examine the sustainable aspects of concrete as a building material
    3. Evaluate the current approach for testing for concrete moisture against the principles of sustainability
    4. Analyze the value of closed-capillary concrete slabs against open-capillary concrete slabs
    5. Specify proactive measures to address concrete slab moisture so projects are not prevented from installing on time
    6. Implement procedures that indemnify the specifying professional against failed project timelines and failed flooring due to moisture

    Exterior Insulation: Advanced Perspectives for Fire, Moisture, and Thermal Performance  (AtlasWall05)
    Maggiano's Little Italy

    Credits Earned:

    AIA HSW/ LU credit hour | AIA Course ID #: AtlasWall05 | AIA Provider: Atlas Roofing Corporation | Presenter: Lance Williams

    Course Description:

    Design practices in framed wall construction rely largely on exterior insulation to comply with current energy codes and continuous insulation requirements. New challenges accompany this paradigm shift, including implications for NFPA285 compliant wall assemblies, tolerance to wetting events, and the continuity of thermal layers. This presentation examines the performance of exterior insulation in response to the demanding conditions found in modern rainscreens and masonry veneer cavities. Particular emphasis is placed on NFPA285 compliance, thermal bridging, moisture transport, and the effects of wind-washing in ventilated rainscreens. These advanced perspectives will empower professionals to design, specify, install, & achieve the benefits of exterior insulation while avoiding its unintended consequences.

    Learning Objectives:

    At the end of this course, attendees will be able to:

    1. Understand current building code requirements and testing methodologies for fire propagation and smoke development.Given assembly testing following the Grenfell tragedy, attendees will better understand fire propagation in relation to actual material properties and performance.
    2. Review material properties governing moisture and air performance as they pertain to conditions encountered in rainscreens and masonry veneers so as to best understand the performance characteristics of insulation specification choices
    3. Understand conditions that pose unique challenges, including multiple drain planes, drainage efficiencies, increased water absorption, and water vapor transmission. Recognize risks associated with exterior insulation when used in combination with cavity insulation, interior vapor retarders, and low-perm water-resistive barriers
    4. Understand the effects of wind-washing and convective heat loss in modern rainscreen systems. Identify and prevent conditions that jeopardize the thermal insulation layer, which may in turn affect moisture transfer and overall wall performance
