After completion of the course, participants will understand the inter-related elements of the back-ventilated and drained-cavity (BVDC [open-joint, “rainscreen” systems]) wall designs that determine performance, cost, and visual appearance and be equipped with questions and a framework to qualify manufacturers and work collaboratively to develop design solutions and specifications that leverage the unique advantages of Architectural UHPC.
For this learning unit, we will focus on the use of repetitive precast UHPC building elements which permit greater use of a single mold, and thereby result in increased quality and decreased production cost. Naturally, through repetitive production, the precaster will become well-acquainted with the mold and the process. Ultimately, personal experience and knowledge gained will attribute to increased quality of UHPC design elements at a reduced production cost.
Watch why this structural concrete contractor chose laser scanning technology to document as-built conditions on their projects - scanning every single deck from the ground up.
Is It Level? Is It Flat?: DPR Construction Knows the Answers Faster Than Ever on a $60 Million California Medical Center
There was a time when determining the flatness of a slab pour meant scheduling floor profilers to walk the slab, take readings, import data, and generate an F-number report. Now there is a simpler, faster, and more advanced way to determine floor flatness.
Read about how this structural concrete contractor now uses laser scanning technology to document as-built conditions on their projects.
Wet-Pour Quality Control: Compressing Workflow in Concrete Slab Pour Flatness and Levelness Measurement
Is it level? Is it flat? For concrete construction contractors, finishing foremen, superintendents, flooring inspectors, and structural engineers, they are the central questions to any large concrete pour. Read how new measurement technology transforms workflows, improves pour outcomes, and simplifies measurement.
