Healthy Home: All Control Layers Working Together
Sponsored By Benjamin Obdyke
Presented By Will Maley
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

Buildings have become a complex network of control systems which must work together to prevent failure, but often times these systems are incorporated incorrectly and lead to significant damage and unhealthy living conditions.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand why moisture management and drainage gaps, behind claddings, are more critical as we focus more on air tightness in the structure's envelope.
  2. Recognize that a true air barrier is created with a continuous plane around the entire building envelope.
  3. Understand how all control layers in the building envelope work together to prevent failure.
  4. Recognize the importance of communication between trades, design professionals, and manufacturers are vital to ensure proper detailing in the building envelope.

Breathing Freely: How HVAC Systems can Enhance Indoor Environmental and Air Quality
Presented By Jed Dela Cruz
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

Join us in this one-hour course as we explore the constantly evolving concepts of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ). These two terms have been around for years but have gained newfound importance due to the pandemic.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Examine Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) and evaluate the health and wellness benefits of designing projects that focus on IAQ & IEQ products, equipment and systems.
  2. Explore building codes, standards and wellness certifications and how a building can meet the criteria to get a health and wellness designation.
  3. Investigate the myriad of applications for IAQ and IEQ associated with HVAC systems that improve the wellbeing of building occupants and healthy building compliance.
  4. Illustrate how HVAC systems can help design professionals achieve healthy building standards that improve IAQ and IEQ by analyzing potential scenarios. In doing so we will highlight key ways HVAC systems contribute to health and wellness criteria.

Designing Functional Outdoor Living Space
Sponsored By Wolf Home Products
Presented By Jason Foura
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

Overview of the outdoor living space and materials used in outdoor living design. Material selection, care and design, will be discussed, and common misconceptions will be addressed.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand the evolution of the outdoor living market. Discuss how new materials have longer sustainability on life cycle costs and how wood and older materials have continued to create maintenance issues and if not maintained can create safety issues with Code related materials on decking and railing.
  2. Address trends and materials used in outdoor living spaces. Trends are moving toward more Aluminum railing items. Some competitors don’t have IRC and IBC coded materials in the field.
  3. Apply standard design principles and how they relate to outdoor living spaces. Many of the design principles relate to safety because of life cycle maintenance as well as improper flashing and installation that lead to unsafe building practices.
  4. Identify and explain common misconceptions and safety issues in designing outdoor living spaces. Decking today has many options when it comes to installation and using the proper installation hardware. We review all code rulings for decking and railing.
  5. Explain proper use and care of outdoor living spaces and how to avoid them for extended performance. We review how some chemicals can harm the decking material and which products can be safely used to provide a non-toxic method to maintaining the life of your deck and rail material. Some products can react to PVC and cause issues to the capstop.

Sponsored By Wolf Home Products
Presented By Jason Foura
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour

An examination of the various categories of exterior siding and how they perform in a complete moisture management system.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Examine latest trends in exterior moisture management systems.
  2. Understand how the combination of PVC siding and a drainable weather resistant barrier provide a superior moisture management system.
  3. Compare and contrast different siding substrates and installation methods
  4. Explain the role exterior siding plays in a total moisture management solution.

Benefits of High Efficiency Gas Water Heaters: Tank & Tankless Commercial Applications
Presented By Chris Johnson
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

To optimize the design and performance of commercial water heater systems, professionals should understand the difference between standard and high efficiency gas water heaters. Join us in this one-hour course as we cover the benefits of high efficiency gas water heaters and how to easily convert from standard to high efficiency.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Compare and contrast standard efficiency and high efficiency gas water heaters for energy consumption, cost savings, and environmental impact
  2. Model best practices for converting from existing standard gas water heaters to high efficiency gas water heaters so projects remain cost-effective and time efficient
  3. Determine the correct water heater for different applications based on time, temperature, and quantity to improve thermal efficiency and occupant comfort
  4. Illustrate best practices for piping and venting multiple water heaters to ensure projects are safe and code compliant
  5. Recall advanced and emerging technologies in water heating that improve on efficiency and building integration
