    Wide World of WRB's: Specifying WRBs as part of a high performance system  (BOI102)

    Credits Earned: 1 AIA HSW/ LU credit hour | AIA Course ID #: BOI102 | AIA Provider: Benjamin Obdyke| Presenter: Josh Hall

    Course Description: There are a lot of options out there for Water Resistive Barriers. Determining what’s best for your project can be challenging. This course will help to identify and educate you on best practices and accessories for those options.

    Prerequisite Knowledge: Residential/low-rise commercial architects & design professionals, custom home builders, construction superintendants, service/warranty managers, contractors specializing in the installation of cedar, fiber-cement, manufactured stone veneer or stucco, as well as mold or moisture remediation contractors.

    HSW Justification: Without proper knowledge of how to install Water-Resistive Barrier Housewraps, the wall assembly is vulnerable to water introduction. We provide knowledge and solutions for moisture management, which will keep out mold and rot, which can penetrate through the wall and make those living inside susceptible to severe illness. This moisture knowledge will also keep the siding of the structure in tact and strong, which will prevent pieces from falling off or injuring anyone possibly doing a remediation.

    Learning Objective 1: • Understand the performance characteristics of Water Resistive Barriers

    Learning Objective 2: • Gain the knowledge to select the best WRB option for your particular project

    Learning Objective 3: • Understand how to best integrate peel and stick flashing with housewrap

    Learning Objective 4: • Learn how to properly design a wall with housewrap and exterior foam board

    Course Description: In this one-hour course, we will discuss how hand dryers have evolved from the first generation of hand dryers to the efficient, hygienic wave of the present and future. Examining the newest features available, we will explore what to consider when selecting hand dryers, to include speed, heat, sound level, durability, and cost which is relative to the venue in which the dryers will be located. We will also discuss the various features of high-speed hand dryer elements, including HEPA filter, antimicrobial technology, ADA compliance, and maintenance indicator lights that are used to accommodate the individual requirements in a host of application environments. Participants will discover the importance of specifying high-speed, energy efficient hand dryers that contribute to green initiatives. Case studies will also be reviewed to illustrate challenges and solutions that were rectified by the addition of hand dryers in order to improve operation costs and the welfare of users.

    Learning Objective 1: Identify the different types of hand dryers and their distinctive features to determine which environment each one is best suited for in order to provide hygienic products for building occupants.

    Learning Objective 2: Compare and contrast hand dryers' cost effectiveness, sanitary features, sustainability, and their positive environmental impact to other products, including their paper towel counterparts.
