How to Improve Project Delivery through Laser Scanning Technology and BIM Workflows- 1 HSW Learn the benefits of laser scanning technology brings to project delivery teams and documenting exiting conditions. See how three dimensional data can be easily converted to popular Building Information Modeling Software and  Provides work-in-progress as-built information to compare the design model location with the installed locations of structural steel, MEP/FP pipe and
sleeve locations in advance of concrete placements, and MEP/FP system installation.

Flexible Space Design Trends- 1 HSW The purpose of this course is to explore space utilization trends and challenges in three major
practice area: Corporate (workspace), Hospitality and Academic (primary and higher ed). Also to
understand acoustics and the acoustical control in those spaces and to investigate how space
flexibility can impact design.

Total Bathroom Design- 1 HSW

The purpose of this course is to make the case that all design features that help a bathroom be friendly to all people and the environment are simply elements of good bathroom design. Explore the labels for specialties in bathroom design such as Universal Design, Accessible Design, Inclusive Design, Sustainable Design, and Green Design.  Taking the idea of labels and showing that is it better to have total design for total of all people then isolating concept labels.   TORRCO- Featuring a program from TOTO- Luke Broman

New Age Stone Technology- 1 HSW Buildings have been built from stone since the stone age and stone is still the most durable, versatile, sustainable, and elegant material to build with. You might think that after building with stone for thousands of years, the technology of stone would be old hat, but that is not true. The technology of stone has entered the 21st century with new fabrication and building technologies that were unimagined by our stone age predecessors CONNECTICUT STONE- Tyra Dellacroce
  Critical Details for Durable Masonry Facades- 1 HSW

 

Masonry facades are classic and durable solutions for contemporary architecture. Design decisions and details are critical for successful projects that can last for generations as sustainable buildings. This presentation will go over critical details, such as flashing systems, horizontal s Properly designed & installed masonry flashing is one of the most critical factors in protecting horizontal surfaces and diverting moisture outward through weep openings as it collects in the wall cavity space. Since the flashing system is comprised of many components, an installation can lead to a multitude of problems within the building enclosure and ultimately could lead to damaging the integrity of the masonry system. Ventilation of these wall assemblies can improve the durability of the masonry materials. As steel and concrete elements are integrated with m it is important to adequately allow for movement, so these various materials do not cause future damage. Knowledge of flashing systems, movement joints, masonry materials and how these elements should be designed and installed is critical for successful masonry wall assemblies.  The hope of this presentation is to provide architects with an understanding of critical details, so they can create future cutting-edge masonry facades that are durable

Sustainable Forestry- 1 HSW This is a discussion on the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Program (SFI).  We will detail history, membership and qualification into the SFI Standard and what it means to have certification.  Included in the discussion about our forests help to sequester carbon from our atmosphere while providing a renewable source of fiber that can be used in a multitude of ways.  SIERRA PACIFIC WINDOWS- Michale Marmo, CDT, CSI

Aluminum Windows: Life Cycle and Performance- 1 HSW

This course provides an over-view of window types, operation and performance classifications with a specific focus on aluminum windows and the American Architectural Manufacturer’s Association’s (AAMA) grading system. The specific requirements for each of the four (4) performance grades (R, LC, CW and AW) are reviewed in depth. The second half of the presentation focuses on the environmental impact, recyclability and life cycle assessment for aluminum windows. This section concludes with a case study condensed from Towards Sustainable Cities that takes a deep-dive into the environmental impact of various building material types. This program will be an interactive session that encourages feedback and questions.

Proper Planning for Residential Electronic Systems- 1 HSW As with other rough-in trades (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing), electronic systems should be planned for well in advance of construction and documented at the construction drawing phase of design. This course describes the processes used by professionals in the project planning, design, and installation phases of electronic systems. Participants will be able to identify different types of residential systems and the unique impact of each on specific design considerations, such as space framing, electrical, and ventilation requirements. This course will also help attendees identify and analyze the benefits of working with trained electronic systems professionals SMARTHOME- JoAnn Arcenal, COI

11:30am-12:30pm
Risk Management Case Study- 1 HSW We will conduct a risk management case study for our program. The case study is a review and group discussion around an
actual claim. Attendees will read the case study, taking notes on key issues and risk drivers that contributed to the claim and then we will moderate a group discussion with the attendees. The group discssuion will touch upon how to handle similar situations and how attendees have dealt with similar situations. This case study will help participants to avoid similar situations by taking into consideration lessons learned from the case study reviewed.
