    Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design  (ISL03C)

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW/ LU credit hour | AIA Course ID #: ISL03C | AIA Provider: ISE Logik Industries, Inc. | Presenter: Bill Roper

    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.

    Do I Really Have to do That?...On My Tile & Stone Installations  (017.)

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW/ LU credit hour | AIA Course ID #: 017. | AIA Provider: Noble Company | Presenter: Dean Moilanen

    Course Description:

    A collection of tile industry myths, urban legends,  misconceptions, and misunderstandings.

    Learning Objectives

    1. We will identify recent trends in product development, installation methods, and industry standards that endeavor to minimize unacceptable means and methods and provide finished installations that are durable and safe.
    2. Our survey of the industry will reveal that in spite of best efforts, there still remain a number of prevailing notions, stubbornly-held beliefs, and legacy old school practices which continue to prevent current best practices from thriving.
    3. We will examine the impact these hold-over notions and practices have on the quality and longevity of tile and stone installations, as well as health and safety concerns. 
    4. By aligning these issues and concerns with installation guidelines and industry best practices, we can craft solutions that minimize the risk of failures and help ensure durable installations and avoid wasteful repairs or replacements that waste energy and resources.

    Continuous Insulation: Spray Polyurethane Foam vs. Rigid Foam Board  (ICY-153360-00)

    Credits Earned:

    1 AIA HSW / LU Credit Hour | AIA Course ID #: ICY-153360-00 | AIA Provider: Icynene Corporation | Presenter: Brian Troy

    Course Description:

    The design of exterior wall assemblies has become increasingly focused on performance for greater energy efficiency and resistance to air and water penetration. The 2015 International Energy Conservation Code and ASHRAE 90.1 now requires insulation that is continuous in wall assemblies, (i.e. not interrupted by studs, framing, etc.) in all eight climate zones within the United States. This push for continuous insulation in exterior wall assemblies is also reflected in green building standards and the desires of building owners to reduce energy costs.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Identify the characteristics of high performance continuously insulated exterior wall assemblies.
    2. Compare the characteristics of rigid board insulation with those of medium density spray foam insulation for use in exterior wall assemblies.
    3. Investigate the use of spray foam insulation to achieve multiple performance traits in one product including thermal, air, and water resistance.
    4. Assess the ability of spray foam insulation to be installed with fewer steps and at a lesser cost than assemblies using rigid foam insulation.
