For more than 90 years, gypsum board has been used as a high performance, economical, easy-to-install and fire-resistant construction material. The gypsum industry continues to invest in research and development of new and improved products and systems that enhance the value, safety, and overall performance of gypsum panels. This CEU addresses the unique attributes of specialized performance gypsum panels and how they can be used to improve the performance, efficiency, and resilience of multi-family dwellings and commercial structures. The course also discusses how architects and specifiers can benefit building owners and add value to a project through proper selection and installation of gypsum panels.
Building components, especially finishes, have to contend with many structural and environmental factors such as different types of loads that cause movement in the building. Special care must be taken when multiple materials come into contact with one another or where joints, edges, or corners are formed. Using new construction technology and products that absorb or resist movement will maximize the longevity of systems and finishes. This course will cover the types of loads and movement that may occur in a building, how they will affect interior finishes, and solutions for preventing damage to building components from movement.
