    Insulating Concrete Forms for Multifamily Residential Construction (Print Course)

    This article provides guidance for architects, engineers and builders on how to design and build high performance reinforced concrete multifamily residential buildings using Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs). Combining the strength and durability of reinforced concrete with the versatility of highly engineered rigid insulation, ICFs provide ideal solutions for apartments, condos, hotels, dormitories and assisted living facilities. With increased attention to occupant safety and comfort, design professionals can take advantage of concrete’s inherent fire resistance and noise reduction qualities, important features when designing multifamily residential buildings. This article will address how the thermal properties of ICFs, combining the high R-value of rigid insulation with the thermal mass of concrete, offer building owners significant energy savings over the long term. The article will also provide guidance on how to minimize the cost of ICF concrete construction to take full advantage of these benefits, resulting in investments that are secure and generate long-term value to building owners.

    High Performance Waterproofing Solutions for Shotcrete Foundations

    This course will discuss the use of shotcrete for structural applications, specifically in below-grade foundation walls. While the use of shotcrete is proven to accelerate construction schedules up to 25%, experience has shown that there are risks associated with this method of concrete placement versus traditional cast-in-place walls. These risks include an increased incidence of voids within the wall, poorly consolidated concrete behind and around rebar installations and damage to traditional waterproofing systems associated with the shotcrete application itself. Each of these factors contribute to a challenging waterproofing project - one that can be completed successfully with a properly designed waterproofing system. During this session, we will cover the benefits and risks associated with shotcrete, how pre-applied waterproofing membrane systems should be designed for critical applications and the challenges that traditional waterproofing membranes face when used with shotcrete construction.

    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

    High Performance Precast Concrete Building Enclosures (PRINT)

    When you ask architects today about some of their biggest challenges; and building enclosure design is usually at, or towards the top of the list. New and more stringent codes are requiring designers to have a deeper understanding of enclosure systems. High performance building designs are becoming essential to meet new code requirements, as well as the expectations of funding entities, owners, and developers. State-of-the-art building designs require high performance building materials and building enclosure systems. High performance materials must be efficient and versatile in use and in operation, as well as durable, resilient, and capable of protecting buildings and building occupants from weather extremes, natural and man-made hazards, and environmental concerns.
