    Moisture Mitigation with Rainscreen Technologies (Print Course)

    There is no such thing as a water-tight structure. Because water takes the path of least resistance, it will find even the smallest opening in the building envelope, allowing moisture to enter the wall system, no matter how many layers of protection are provided. Therefore, in addition to keeping water out with various weather resistive barriers (WRB), systems must be put in place to allow water to exit the envelope once it inevitably does get in. Enroll

    Rethinking Wood as a Material of Choice: Costs Less, Delivers More (Print Course)

    Designers today are finding new possibilities in one of the oldest building materials on earth. Wood has always been valued for its beauty, abundance and practicality, but many of wood’s inherent characteristics are rising to very current challenges. Wood’s traditional values and newest technologies meet in the projects presented in this course, illustrating the advantages of wood to in four areas: cost-effectiveness in a wide range of projects; adaptability for use in challenging, visionary new designs; lower environmental costs throughout its life cycle, from its source in renewable, carefully managed forests, through an energy-efficient service life, and often on to a new, recycled and reimagined use; and a unique human-nature connection that has always been intuitive, but is now being documented in research.

    Constructible Dreams: Making the World's High Profile, High-Performance Facades (Print Course)

    Today’s high-performance facades are simulated and perfected long before they are ever built. Sometimes, even, thanks to social media and global connectivity, a building’s swooping form or glistening glass walls become the darling of the public eye years before it is ready for occupants, raising the bar even further on the aesthetics and function of new landmarks. Designer, fabricator, and installer must work in tandem to achieve the desired results, using collaborative design approaches that would have been unimaginable even a few years ago.
    In this article, we will look at the research and development being done in emerging areas of façade materials, design, and performance, and examine real-world projects that combine research innovation, collaborative design processes, and construction feasibility to improve not only façade performance, but also human comfort.

    Achieving Effective Acoustics (Print Course)

    The first part of this course introduces the goals of acoustic design, methods of noise control and how various interior design elements can help achieve good acoustic performance in an office setting. The second part explains, in acoustical terms, several of the principles behind the use of these techniques and materials. Through examples of how sound masking works in conjunction with absorptive elements, it also demonstrates that a combination of acoustic treatments is key to achieving the desired results. Enroll

    Specification of Flooring Surfaces (PRINT COURSE)

    Specifying the right flooring and installation products for the appropriate application can be challenging. Whether specifying tile, hardwood, carpet, or resilient flooring, there are basic specification considerations that encompass the very broad category of flooring. From flooring type and auxiliary products to surface preparation, installation, maintenance and accessibility, specifiers have many decisions to make that they then must clearly convey in a specification. This learning unit will cover the range of considerations such as function, performance, application, cost, environmental impacts and aesthetics that can all influence a flooring specification.

    Fiberglass Manufacturing and Window Performance Testing

    Fiberglass windows & doors were developed as the demand for a strong, durable and low maintenance frame type that would be more sustainable and environmentally friendly than vinyl, wood or aluminum frames. The global green building movement is spurring demand for sustainable products with low life cycle costs—and more mainstream window and door manufacturers are introducing fiberglass profiles to meet the demands of most architects and designers.
