    The Effects of Building Movement on Interior Finishes and Solutions (print course)

    Building components, especially finishes, have to contend with many structural and environmental factors such as different types of loads that cause movement in the building. Special care must be taken when multiple materials come into contact with one another or where joints, edges, or corners are formed. Using new construction technology and products that absorb or resist movement will maximize the longevity of systems and finishes. This course will cover the types of loads and movement that may occur in a building, how they will affect interior finishes, and solutions for preventing damage to building components from movement.

    Electronic Sensor Faucets Improve Hygiene and Conserve Water in Commercial Restrooms (Print Course)

    Sensing technologies based on electronics are often used for hands-free activation of plumbing fittings such as faucets to improve user accessibility, overall hygiene, and restroom cleanliness. Electronic plumbing fittings offer sanitary, touch-free operation, while conserving water and energy because they only dispense water when the sensor detects a user and can also limit water delivery duration.
    The advantages of sensor-operated faucets extend beyond the public restroom to almost any other type of handwashing station, especially in applications requiring the highest levels of cleanliness. This course will cover how electronic sensor faucets improve hygiene in commercial settings and contribute to water conservation. Electronic sensor faucet technologies, applications, and industry regulations will be discussed. Enroll

    Fenestration Installation for High Performance Residential Building Envelopes

    Improper design and/or non-conforming application of building envelope materials has been demonstrated to cause premature building envelope failure. Architects may specify premium materials, but shortcuts and errors in the final installation can impact budgets, time frames, building life span, and increase legal liabilities.

    As one of the elements that bisect the interior/exterior plane, window and door integrations are a critical element of the building envelope as a whole. Poor installations can carry significant liability, due to building envelope failure.

    This course will review the components of a building envelope, their role in managing air and moisture infiltration, how windows and doors factor into this equation, and general installation processes for high performance residential fenestration.
