This learning unit will also explore the next generation of LED fixtures made possible by innovative contemporary designs, improved secondary optics, and wireless technology, and OLEDs. Finally, this learning unit will glimpse into the future, exploring developing technologies such as laser diodes and battery free sensors.
Spray foam is an alternative to traditional fiberglass insulation. Its unique qualities make it extremely effective, environmentally friendly, and cost-efficient. This course will provide an overview of how spray foam insulation compares to traditional insulation materials. The course will define spray foams for interior and exterior use, explain how spray foam insulation functions in residential and commercial buildings, and provide detailed information about the advantages of spray foam as a tool for reducing energy consumption and carbon footprints. The course will also discuss the use of recycled, renewable, and green materials in the production and application of spray foam.
This course will discuss the overall advantages of choosing a custom-fabricated railing system built off-site compared to off-the-shelf products or locally fabricated railings. In addition to looking at the practical considerations of how different fabrication choices affect project time and budget, this course also identifies some ways to address health, safety, and building occupant welfare.
This course will discuss the use of shotcrete for structural applications, specifically in below-grade foundation walls. While the use of shotcrete is proven to accelerate construction schedules up to 25%, experience has shown that there are risks associated with this method of concrete placement versus traditional cast-in-place walls. These risks include an increased incidence of voids within the wall, poorly consolidated concrete behind and around rebar installations and damage to traditional waterproofing systems associated with the shotcrete application itself. Each of these factors contribute to a challenging waterproofing project - one that can be completed successfully with a properly designed waterproofing system. During this session, we will cover the benefits and risks associated with shotcrete, how pre-applied waterproofing membrane systems should be designed for critical applications and the challenges that traditional waterproofing membranes face when used with shotcrete construction.
