Sponsored By Armortex
Presented By Rick Snelling
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

In this one-hour course, design professionals will learn about anti-ballistic technology, specifically fiberglass panels, windows, doors, and other products, that are used to protect a building’s occupants from weapons, impact, and explosives.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Define the four different types of resistance technologies that are used to protect occupants from weapons, impact, and explosives
  2. Identify the organizations that create standards and testing for resistance technologies to ensure these products are capable of securing the building in the event of an attack
  3. Evaluate anti-ballistic products, specifically panels, windows, and doors, on their durability and safety
  4. Apply knowledge of anti-ballistic technology and specify products to promote safe environments

10:20 am

Materials, Technology, and Innovative Trends in Casework Systems
Sponsored By Case Systems
Presented By Michael Cline
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour(s) for LEED Professionals

In this one-hour course, the design professional will gain an understanding of how manufactured casework has evolved over the years. Recent developments in casework that will explained include innovation in materials, concepts and how new manufacturing methods offer advantages.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Define areas that need to be included when specifying casework, including edge, core, and hardware and explain how the proper detailing can lead to a successful project that is aesthetically pleasing and maintains the welfare of building occupants.
  2. Identify current trends and code considerations when specifying laminate casework and how adhering to safety standards will produce a project that is durable and environmentally conscious.
  3. Compare and contrast different core materials and what unique characteristics they each have regarding the safety of building occupants.
  4. Discuss how Division 6 and Division 12 specifications impact your casework project.

11:30 am

Insulated Roof Decks
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

A discussion on the increasing adoption of insulated roof decks in the North American, including descriptions on what insulated metal roof decks entail, comparisons of insulated metal roof decks with more traditional systems, and design considerations for insulated metal roof decks.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand the concept of Insulated Roof Deck Technology and why they have been developed.
  2. Articulate the benefits of Insulated Roof Decks when compared to more traditional materials used in commercial low slope roofing.
  3. Outline the diaphragm sheer and non-diaphragm options for Insulated Roof Decks.
  4. Realize the proper design & application strategies for Insulated Roof Decks.

Specification Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 IDCEC HSW CEU(s)

In many projects, installation of floor finishes is one of the last items to occur prior to substantial completion. However, 09 flooring specification sections require moisture testing before flooring can be installed on concrete slabs. When those moisture tests fail, the project faces time delays, unexpected costs, or both.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Discuss owner’s design intent and how it drives project requirements, thereby directly impacting specification language.
  2. Review specific industry documents and reference standards that drives the requirement to moisture test all concrete slabs.
  3. Investigate the genesis of current 09 flooring specification language.
  4. Specify sustainable design processes that eliminate: (1) project delivery delays due to concrete slab moisture, (2) subsequent bond or moisture failures, and (3) design team liability for each.

2:10 pm

Improving IAQ Through the Use of Energy Efficient, 100% Outside Air Heating and Cooling Technologies IN High Bay Buildings
Presented By Randy Niederer
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

As “Energy Efficiency” continues to drive the conversation about how we heating, ventilate and air condition buildings of all types we have to focus more on those HVAC technologies that we utilize to heat and cool the places where we work. This presentation explores two types of technologies….

Learning Objectives:
  1. Describe technologies available that are some of the most energy efficient ways to heat and temper cool facilities throughout the U.S. that use 100% outside air to improve IAQ
  2. Discuss how improved IAQ can have positive effects on worker productivity
  3. Identify building types that can use 100% outside air technologies to improve IAQ
  4. Illustrate how the use of energy efficient HVAC technologies can reduce the carbon footprint of industrial buildings.

The Wave of the Future: Sustainable Hand Dryer Solutions
Sponsored By World Dryer
Presented By Scott Kerman
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 GBCI General Hour(s) for LEED Professionals

In this one-hour course, we will discuss how hand dryers have evolved from the first generation of hand dryers to the efficient, hygienic wave of the present and future.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify the different types of hand dryers and their distinctive features to determine which environment each one is best suited for in order to provide hygienic products for building occupants.
  2. Compare and contrast hand dryers' cost effectiveness, sanitary features, sustainability, and their positive environmental impact to other products, including their paper towel counterparts.
  3. Explain how to determine which hand dryers are needed for each restroom and how to ensure compliance with ADA guidelines so that all people are able to use hand dryers comfortably.
  4. Analyze applications and explain how high-speed hand dryers may help a building earn LEED points and contribute to green building principles to best protect the welfare of people.
