Specification of Flooring Surfaces (PRINT COURSE)

Specifying the right flooring and installation products for the appropriate application can be challenging. Whether specifying tile, hardwood, carpet, or resilient flooring, there are basic specification considerations that encompass the very broad category of flooring. From flooring type and auxiliary products to surface preparation, installation, maintenance and accessibility, specifiers have many decisions to make that they then must clearly convey in a specification. This learning unit will cover the range of considerations such as function, performance, application, cost, environmental impacts and aesthetics that can all influence a flooring specification.

Propane Gas Systems: Considerations for Residential Construction

Propane heats homes, water and outdoor spaces, fuels clean, comforting fireplaces, cooks food, and dries clothes. Propane is also environmentally friendly, emitting fewer greenhouse gases than other fossil fuels and electricity. When planning and designing homes, architects should know that more than 12.6 million U.S. households rely on propane for their primary energy needs. Propane can be stored above ground or in underground propane tanks, an option many builders are choosing in order to fuel homes off the natural gas mains. This course will cover important considerations when planning for propane use in residential construction.
