    Concrete Roof Tiles: The Natural Choice for Durability and Sustainability  (IEA07A)

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW/ LU Credit Hour | AIA Course ID #: IEA07A | AIA Provider: Eagle Roofing Products | Presenter: Tyler Allwood

    Course Description:

    In this one hour course we will take an in-depth look at concrete roofing tiles including design options, manufacturing and installation processes, testing and code compliance, and finally sustainable attributes and life cycle cost analysis.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Discuss the design versatility of concrete roof tiles including color and profile options to coordinate any architectural style in both commercial and residential projects.
    2. Review the manufacturing process of concrete roof tiles from the introduction of raw materials to the finished product.
    3. Compare and contrast the installation methods of concrete roof tile and other roofing materials.
    4. Identify key performance characteristics of concrete roof tiles including safety testing, related building codes, and sustainability attributes.
    5. Analyze the longevity, durability, and overall life cycle cost analysis of concrete roof tile compared to asphalt shingles, wood shakes, slate and metal
    6. Confidently specify concrete tile roofing as an alternative to slate, metal, wood shakes and temporary asphalt shingles.

    Architectural Coatings: Weathering Performance and Application Process  (LIN001)

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW / LU Credit Hour | AIA Course LIN001 | AIA Provider: Linetec | Presenter: Jeff Fochs

    Course Description:

    For durable, architectural aluminum building components, the construction industry most often relies on two types of finishes: anodize and paint. Both offer a long-lasting finish, but each has its own characteristics inherent in its application.

    This presentation will help attendees to better understand weathering performance and sustainable goals of architectural Kynar 500® (PVDF) paints, baked enamels, powder coating and anodize finishes including strengths, weaknesses, weatherability and environmental considerations. As an architect, specifier, contractor, or other member of the building community, this presentation will help you better understand the anodize, paint and powder coat application processes, specifications and performances. A summary comparison of all three finish types completes this one-hour program.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. The strengths and limitations of this fully integrated, non-hazardous finish are conveyed and supported with specifications for achieving optimal results.
    2. The painting process and its application as a protective, decorative organic coating for architectural aluminum building products are evaluated.
    3. The program defines high-performance fluoropolymer coatings (including Kynar) and baked enamels, and how a quality finish is achieved in each type.
    4. The powder coating process and how it compares to, and differs from, the liquid paint process is clarified.
    5. Participants will be able to compare anodize, liquid paint, baked enamel and powder coat finishes to achieve optimal results for their architectural building.

    Going Curbless  (0718)

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW/ LU credit hour | AIA Course ID #: 0718 | AIA Provider: Noble Company | Presenter: Dean Moilanen

    Course Description:

    Curbless showers are in high demand, sometimes solely for their streamlined look, other times because of ADA compliance efforts or similar aging-in-place design measures. This course will provide a brief overview of the growing demand for curbless showers, the difference between curbless and barrier-free, the installation methods in the TCNA Handbook, and a host of design and installation considerations for a successful project.

    We will talk about what is required for a curbless shower to comply with ADA guidelines and how to be sure to meet applicable plumbing codes and wet-area coefficient of friction for flooring. We will briefly review the various kits and systems for constructing curbless showers with emphasis on their benefits, nuances, and important best practices to be aware of when designing and installing.

    Learning Objectives:

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

    1. Present new trends in shower design and installation systems that provide an environment supporting an individual’s ability to accomplish day-to-day activities without assistance or with minimal assistance.
    2. Present current industry standards and their impact on shower systems from a safe entry to shower and exit from shower, while being able to clean to a healthy standard.
    3. Present design and barrier-free shower installation techniques to accommodate various construction obstacles, while complying with building standards and social sustainability.
    4. Present new installation methodology and systems which offer site flexibility as well as provide for a durable, watertight installation.
