    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.

    IEQ Assessment for Energy Savings & Increased User Comfort

    This course looks at how to assess post-occupancy evaluation of buildings as it affects building performance. How can we verify green building claims? The course discusses the metrics and tools used in post-occupancy evaluations of thermal comfort, and air, acoustic, and visual quality. Use of the National Environmental Assessment Toolkit is proposed as an aid in helping to link building systems to environmental quality and in understanding what should be measured, how it should be measured, and how often it should be measured.

    Specifying Sustainable Insulation for Thermal and Acoustic Control (Print Version)

    Archeological research reveals that insulating our homes using natural, renewable materials like fiber, wool, straw and cork, is actually as old as human history. And with good reason. Insulation is perhaps the most cost effective, straightforward path to peak functionality in the design and construction of buildings. And while many petroleum and chemical-based insulation strategies have risen up over the decades, we may be circling back around in a post-petroleum world to prefer insulation made from renewable, recycled and recyclable materials. This course describes the specification and use of these insulation materials. 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.

    Implementing Hybrid Roof Assemblies in Commercial Construction

    Because no single roof insulation product meets all the criteria for an ideal roof, the solution for many commercial buildings may be a hybrid roof assembly that takes advantage of the favorable properties of two insulation types. There are numerous roof insulation products on the market, but this course is going to focus on stone wool and polyisocyanurate insulating roof boards, the performance properties of each, and how they can be used together for a more energy efficient and long-lasting system.

    Open Cell Spray Foam Insulation in Commercial Buildings

    Open Cell Spray Foam insulation is a logical and proven choice for commercial buildings as it can reduce upfront costs by taking advantage of higher yield and also can reduce energy related operating costs for buildings. In addition to having the lowest environmental impact by being water-blown, Open Cell Spray Foam Insulation also contributes to improved indoor air quality within the building and overall building occupant comfort. Over the course of this presentation, you will learn about Open Cell Insulation’s air barrier and vapor permeability, fire ratings and code compliance, ability to enhance a building's longevity, and environmental and Green Building contributions, as well as all health and safety directions, recommendations and best practices.
