    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: Dean Craft

    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.
    9:10 AM  -  10:10 AM
    Improving the Performance of Finished Concrete Flooring  (PRO016)
