    High Performance Space Heating in High Bay Buildings  (HBH2017)

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW / LU Credit Hour | AIA Course ID #: HBH2017 | AIA Provider: Cambridge Engineering | Presenter: Randy Niederer 

    Course Description:

    For many years, there has been little improvement in the heating efficiencies of commercial and industrial heating products in the US. This presentation details a class of make up air technology established by the Department of Energy called High Temperature Heating & Ventilation (HTHV). The presentation will discuss the energy efficiency characteristics and the IAQ benefits of the technology as well as briefly discuss a Department of Energy field study showing a 20% gas savings when compared to standard unit heaters in a high-bay applications.  


    Learning Objectives:
    1. Understand how a building can meet its space heating and ventilation needs through 100% outside air HTHV direct fired heating technology
    2. Recognize the difference between standard efficiency and high efficiency heating technologies for high-bay commercial buildings
    3. Recognize the energy savings from a recent field study of HTHV technology.
    4. Understand the potential  for widespread energy savings with HTHV technologies. 
    9:05 AM  -  10:05 AM
    Code, Compatibility & Compliance within the industry and for Health Safety & Welfare  (STD022)

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW/ LU credit hour | AIA Course ID #: STD 022 | AIA Provider: Exceptional Metals | Presenter: Jim Townsend

    Course Description:

    Understanding the new standards for safety and well-being through an overview of the NSF/ANSI 347 will provide the basis for specification and adherence. Codes have changed, relative to Low Slope design and Edge Standards to comply with those codes. Additionally, system design now allows the specifier and their clients to merge low slope and steep slope roof assemblies by one source. Compatibility of those systems is critical to performance, workmanship and warranty. All of the key elements for total system design that will perform and meet the new code standards offer the design professional greater control of their intended design and its performance. Finally, knowing the importance of the materials used to manufacture steel, comparing Galvanized to Galvalume along with the Grade of the steel provides design professionals with a clear knowledge of strength of steel versus the perception that thickness is more important. The thickness of single ply membranes clarifies that not all single ply membranes are equal and thicker is not always better.

    Learning Objectives:

    At the end of this program participants will:

    1. Be able to determine the value of gauge and grades of steel
    2. Understand the changes within the IBC and Factory Mutual relative to ES-1 compliance
    3. Identify the differences between PVDF Solar Reflectance Colors relative to energy cost reduction, and Sustainable Design
    4. How to maintain and control waste management, re-purposing of torn off roof assemblies or by not having to tear off pre-existing metal roof systems,
    5. Understand the importance of a sole source warranty for a total system versus the issues of component roof installations to avoid litigation and arbitration issues relative to moisture migration and failure therein.
    6. How to benefit by re-purposing both the steel and the membrane roof assembly for a greater environmental impact.
    10:10 AM  -  11:10 AM

    Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design  (ISL03C)

    Hot lunch to be provided

    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.
