    Surface Protection and Graffiti Abatement Solutions  (GS-1)

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW/ LU credit hour | AIA Course ID #: TBA | AIA Provider: Graffiti Shield | Presenter: Kelly Kelley

    Course Description:

    This presentation covers the needs for surface protection for glass, mirrors, metals, natural stone, and much more. The list of who needs surface protection includes educational facilities, retail establishments, hospitals, high rise buildings, arenas, and much more. With new technologies and products to protect these surfaces and hide existing damage, this allows for sustained use, cost savings, prolonged life, and new design capabilities for all kinds of surfaces.  The ability to print on these new surface protection products allows for endless possibilities.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. How to protect surfaces from intentional and unintentional damage to keep them looking like new
    2. How to minimize the need to repair or remove and replace expensive surfaces.  New technology surface protection products will prolong the life of surfaces indefinitely.
    3. New design capabilities allow for sustained use while updating smooth surfaces to reflect the latest trends
    4. Advantages in printing on new surface protection products allow for advertising, necessary messaging, and corporate identity with the ease of removal and/or replacement.
    10:20 AM  -  11:20 AM
    Daylighting by Design  (6120.3.2018)

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW Credit Hour | Course #: 6120.3.2018 | AIA Provider: MASA | Presenter: Steve Standridge 

    Course Description:

    This course discusses the benefits of a thoughtfully-designed light control system and how to make it work for your project’s natural-lighting and shading needs. The discussion emphasizes implementing design methods including specification of technologies such as sun shade and canopy systems that create useful and aesthetically-pleasing daylighting systems. Designing to not only minimize solar heat gain and sunlight, but to successfully re-purpose it for greater environmental and aesthetic function. LEED credits associated with specifying sun shade and daylighting canopy systems are also discussed. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1.  Discuss the role of sun shade devices in passive design and identify how canopies and awnings can contribute to a holistic sustainable building envelope. 
    2. Identify which LEED credits sun shades and architectural canopies might contribute toward. 
    3. Define daylighting and discuss its role in positive building design, while identifying the benefits of properly-controlled natural light. 
    4. List design considerations for glass and polycarbonate canopy systems.

    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.
