    Modern Building Codes: Keeping Pace With The Wood Revolution (Print Course)

    There is a quiet revolution taking place within the design community. After a long emphasis on concrete and steel for buildings other than homes, design professionals are using wood to great effect in a growing number of non-residential and multi-family building types—in applications that range from traditional to innovative, even iconic. Some are driven by wood’s cost effectiveness, while others cite its versatility or low carbon footprint, but their collective path has been made possible by building codes that increasingly recognize wood’s structural and performance capabilities, and the continued evolution of wood building systems and techniques.

    Wood and Indoor Environment - Creating Beneficial Spaces for Living, Working, Well-Being (Print Course)

    The objectives of sustainable design are broader than just environmental effects, having come to embrace issues of human health and performance. Many factors influence whether a building has a positive or negative impact on its occupants. This course highlights remarkable buildings where the use of wood as a structural or finish material has made a unique contribution, with a focus on indoor air quality, acoustics, physical health, and a natural, positive human response to wood that has always been intuitive, but is increasingly being proven by research and experience.

    Mass Timber in North America - Expanding the Possibilities of Wood Building Design (Print Course)

    This course is intended for architects and engineers seeking current information on mass timber, including products, research related to structural performance and life safety, and available resources. It answers common questions regarding strength, fire protection, and durability, and highlights examples of mass timber buildings in different occupancy groups to illustrate both design trends and the extent to which mass timber has captured the imagination of North American building designers.

    Subfloor Construction Adhesives: Solvent Based, Water Based and Reactive - Why Weather and Substrates Can Cause a Reference Standard Alone to Miss the Mark (ONLINE course)

    This course will look at the differences between construction adhesives based on their core chemical makeup. It will compare and contrast VOC regulations and restrictions for indoor air versus those for outdoor air. It will compare the most commonly referenced subfloor adhesive performance specifications, identify their similarities and differences, and point out how lab conditions can differ from “real world” field conditions. The course will finally look at podium construction and the challenges created for adhesives due to varying manufactured wood based substrates and due to VOC restrictions. Enroll

    Thermal Bridging Solutions to Improve Building Envelope Performance

    Thermal bridging is a big concern in the building industry, it has been recognized as a significant factor in building envelope heat loss. By reducing heat flow through a building’s thermal envelope we can reduce energy consumption as well as prevent potential condensation issues. Building codes have increased requirements of building enclosures requiring ‘continuous insulation’ without thermal bridging. Thermal break materials can be used to reduce heat loss in wall assemblies, transitions and structural connections throughout the building envelope. They can minimize building energy loss and improve building envelope performance.

    This course will provide an overview to thermal bridging, discussing the reasons why it occurs as well as how it can be prevented. This course will also compare building details with and without thermal break solutions to highlight the importance of determining accurate values of thermal transmittance.
