The Evolution of Thin Brick Masonry Cladding in the Building Industry
Dewayne Thomas, Eco Spec
This program addresses the history of thin adhered masonry veneers through the current day, types of finishes available, and the most common methods of installation. New code requirements, as well as compliant design solutions regarding air barriers, continuous insulation, and fire safety, are discussed along with cost comparisons, system capabilities, and limitations. Attendees will learn to evaluate various wall assemblies for their ability to meet code requirements for high energy efficiency, moisture and air management effectiveness, and fire safety.
Single Skin Metal Panels for Pressure Equalized Rainscreen Systems
Andy Armento, Dri-Design
In this course, you will gain a better understanding of how single skin metal panels differ from composite panel systems, the different approaches to building envelope design, the importance of pressure-equalization in rainscreen applications, and the detailing and finishing options for single skin metal rainscreen panel systems.
High-Impact Design Strategies to Transform Indoor Spaces Using Healthy Materials
Yvette Gillespie, Longboard Products
This presentation will explore sustainable building design practices with a primary focus on healthy materials, incentives, and programs. It will profile a number of unique projects that exemplify a range of aesthetic and environmental design goals. Presenters will share their experience and knowledge of sustainable building practices, including a discussion on the topics of basics of healthy materials, an overview of regulatory bodies and the latest standards, overcoming the challenges of cost issues and/or regulatory barriers, and highlighting customized approaches to material selection through case study discussions.
The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design
Jim Case, Uzun+Case
The Kendeda building is an innovative mass timber structure, designed to meet the requirements of the Living Building Challenge. Completed last year, the project has been awarded LEED Platinum status and has received numerous other awards. It is expected to be awarded Living Building certification after one year of operations to verify performance, including net-zero energy consumption. The team selection procedure, building design processes and construction methodology were truly unique and point the way toward a new more sustainable way of building.
