    Acoustic Privacy Within the Built Environment (Print Course)

    Current privacy legislation tends to focus on securing access to information stored on computers or within filing cabinets, but attention also needs to be paid to our built environment. When examined in this context, privacy has both an acoustic and a visual component. This article primarily focuses on the former, except insofar as it is affected by the latter. Enroll

    Understanding the Benefits of Non-Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic Wall Panels

    Traditional fiberglass reinforced plastic wall panels (FRP’s) have been used since the 1960’s as interior wall and ceiling panels. A newer product, non-fiberglass reinforced plastic wall panels, improves on the benefits of FRP’s such as mold, bacteria, moisture, chemical and stain resistance, and is also a sustainable product with fewer health hazards. This course will compare the two products, as well as describe the importance of using non-fiberglass reinforced plastic wall panels to mitigate moisture issues. The course will also cover appropriate applications for the material. Enroll

    Architectural Paving Systems: Advancements in Surface Technologies and Finishes (print)

    Not all concrete paving materials are created equal. To withstand harsh environments and heavy use with minimal color and surface wear, paving products should employ the latest technologies and manufacturing processes available. This will ensure that the architect, landscape architect, or engineer is specifying highly durable concrete pavers. Today, the range of color and finish options are greater than ever before, allowing the designer to explore creative options with a supportive manufacturer. This course explores how to recognize, design, and build with the highest quality concrete pavers available in the industry. Enroll

    Backup Power for Commercial Buildings - Market Drivers, Code Requirements, and Fuel Options for Backup Power

    Power outages in commercial buildings create enormous costs and hardships for business owners, tenants, and employees. The costs include lost productivity, lost sales, lost product, and brand damage. In some cases, outages can jeopardize life safety. For these reasons, many commercial buildings are incorporating backup power systems — some on a voluntary basis and others based on code requirements. This course explores the motivations for using backup power, relevant code and standard requirements, and the fuel options for backup power generators. Enroll
