Enduring Beauty: High Performing Polymer Cladding Systems
Presented By Nat Whitehurst
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

This course encourages participants to think outside the box and consider using polymer cladding as a material to create aesthetic, enduring, and moisture-resistant rainscreens that will better protect buildings and its occupants. We will discuss other more commonly used products and the issues faced with each.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Compare and contrast PVC as a cladding material that may be used in creative solutions
  2. Discuss the product’s credibility, longevity, functionality, enhanced aesthetics, and design flexibility of polymer cladding solutions to better protect the building and its occupants
  3. Address the life cycle advantages and the sustainable features of high performing polymer cladding solutions that contributes to the health, safety, and welfare of people
  4. Examine installation tips and analyze appropriate applications of polymer cladding to benefit both the environment and people

Understanding Hot Water Consumption, Energy Use & System Efficiencies with HVAC Heat Recovery in High Use Facilities
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

The efficiency of a facility’s water heating system is vital to not only the building’s daily operation but also to the comfort of its occupants. Join us in this one-hour course as we discuss how to estimate hot water demands and determine the capacity requirements for the water heating system in a high use facility.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Recall the unique water heating requirements of a high use facility such as restaurants to ensure daily operations can proceed safely and efficiently
  2. List the three factors to consider when determining the hot water demand of a facility and how to calculate the BTUs required to meet a building’s needs
  3. Discuss how thermal loss impacts a water heating system’s efficiency, as well as the thermal efficiency available with different water heating methods
  4. Illustrate the energy savings and cost savings possible by utilizing emerging energy recovery technologies that increase the efficiency of water heating systems, especially in markets focused on electrification of heat

Benefits of High Efficiency Gas Water Heaters: Tank & Tankless Commercial Applications
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
