This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. In this presentation, we’ll discuss unit paver development as it leads to unique and innovative paving options. We will identify unit paver advantages while increasing your knowledge of unit paver uses and limitations from applications ranging from on-grade entranceways to elevated plazas and roof ballast applications. A variety of installation methods will be examined as it pertains to each application type. It is our hope that at the conclusion of this presentation you will have gained a better understanding of unit pavers and hardscape products.
Webinar On-Demand: This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. Join our introductory webinar to learn more about key lighting spec points, such as CRI and Lumen output. Get a better understanding of lighting control and why dimmer compatibility is so crucial. We will wrap up the presentation by reviewing lighting design techniques to effectively layer lighting and create a comfortable environment. Learn more about how to best utilize lighting and how simple it is to incorporate lighting layers into your space.
Webinar On-Demand: This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. This course will provide a holistic view into the fundamental difference between metal panels and insulated metal panels. The goal is to understand how performance needs based on building types play a key role in selecting the appropriate Insulated Panel system.
To begin, the course will explore common misconceptions between metal panels and insulated metal panels. The course will describe how the core type for insulated metal panels (or panes) can vary from highly combustible to non-combustible. Next, the course will analyze the difference between reaction to fire and fire resistance and the importance of considering both alongside fire spread behavior to ensure holistic approval to fire-safe design. Finally, the course will examine the rationale for testing full systems which are preferable over small-scale material testing.
Webinar On-Demand: This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. This course examines the principles associated with carbon emissions over the life of a building. The carbon footprint of a building does not begin when the building becomes operational but rather during design and continues through demolition or deconstruction. The role that design and construction professionals play in regard to product transparency will also be discussed.
This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. In this presentation you’ll learn how solid surface can enhance hygiene and cleanliness in the restroom while adding to the overall aesthetics of the space. We’ll discuss the important properties and benefits of using solid surface material in commercial restroom handwashing stations including a comparison of other available materials.
This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. Building codes and green building standards are continuing to raise the bar on energy efficiency and high performance in buildings. In wood-framed buildings designing for thermal and moisture management in wall cavities, as well as the air tightness of the building enclosure, are all core components to creating advanced building enclosures. This presentation will discuss the need for exterior insulation to manage heat transfer and reduce condensation in exterior walls by providing step-by-step examples of how to determine the amount of continuous insulation required to meet prescriptive code requirements depending on climate zone.
This course explores the evolution of Masonry Veneer Systems in the marketplace and how they function. You will learn how insulated masonry veneer systems can meet durability, code compliance and aesthetic requirements for building projects. The course also covers the important properties of insulated masonry veneer systems and the codes that govern them. When completed, you will have a better understanding of how to specify these systems for various projects.
This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. The Webinar presentation will cover the impact of networked audio on the home and the people inside it as well as the impact of brilliant sound on people’s experiences. We will also look at the kinds of content customers want to access in order to enhance their home, the hardware that is needed to accomplish networked audio in a clean and simple way, and, easy and innovative solutions for clients to control their experience throughout their home.
This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. Few specifications could be as important as those for hospitals and healthcare facilities. The ceiling system plays an important part in the overall healthiness of the building, as well as the patients and staff. Attention should be given to ceiling systems with high sound absorption to cut down on noise that makes staff irritable and inhibits patient healing. The ceiling system can save energy on lighting and cooling. It can help prevent mold and infections with its cleanability. It can be made of recycled and recyclable materials. And a full palette of colors can help create a warm and inviting setting appealing to patients, staff, and visitors alike.
Multi-Family, Mid-Rise Wood Buildings A Code-Compliant, Cost-Effective and Sustainable Choice (Print Course)
One of the most fundamental decisions facing a multi-family design team is choosing the building’s structural material. While dominant in single family residential construction, the cost-effective, code compliant and sustainable attributes of wood construction apply to mid-rise multi-family projects too. This course explores the reasons for the increasing popularity of wood in multifamily buildings, reviews code compliance and fire safety technical considerations, and discusses techniques for successful wood building designs. In addition, it addresses trends expanding the opportunities for wood use in multi-story design.
