    Controlling Noisy Environments with Spray-Applied Acoustical Finishes  (ICC07D)

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW/LU Credit Hour | AIA Course #: ICC07D | AIA Provider: International Cellulose Corp. | Presenter: Chuck Smith

    Course Description:

    This course examines the relationship of acoustics and occupant wellbeing and provides a comprehensive overview of acoustical finishes. Spray-applied acoustical finishes control echo, reverberation and excessive sound transfer, making speech and music more intelligible, and increasing usability of the space. Ideal for new construction, renovation, and historic preservation projects, spray-applied
    finishes are utilized for a wide range of commercial project types. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Identify facilities and areas requiring acoustical treatment as well as the need for acoustical consideration prior to building occupancy.
    2. Identify the three main types of spray-applied acoustical finishes (cellulose based, gypsum/plaster  based, and cementitious based), and recognize the textures, benefits and performance of each, plus review related standards.
    3. Describe the benefits spray-applied acoustical finishes provide including performance, design flexibility, sustainability, and improved occupant wellbeing and experience.
    9:10 AM  -  10:10 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.
