  • Revolutionary Wood Products: A Closer Look at Acetylated Wood

    1 LU AIA

    Acetylation has been studied by scientists around the world for more than 90 years. Take a close look at acetylated wood and the acetylation process. Explain the benefits and key characteristics of acetylated wood. Identify different testing done on the acetylated wood, such as: durability, joints, canal lining, and termite testing. This program is registered with AIA for 1 CEH. Take the course.

  • Wood in Buildings: Steps to Durability and Longevity How to Use Wood to Its Full Potential

    1 LU AIA/HSW

    Specifying a building material considers structure, functionality and the aesthetics of the built project and environment. Architects specify wood for many reasons, including cost, availability, ease of construction, thermal performance, aesthetics and design versatility. Research and new product development have only added to the versatility of building with wood. New products enable increased dimensional stability, higher strength-to-weight ratios, and greater long-span capabilities. This program is registered with AIA for 1 HSW hour. Take the course.

  • Building Materials Matter: How Green Rating Systems, Codes, and Sourcing Practices Influence Specification Decisions

    1 LU AIA/HSW/SD

    As a building material, responsibly-sourced wood contributes to efficient construction and operation. Review today’s prevalent green rating systems, building codes and standards as they related to ensuring responsible building practices. Sustainable sourcing of wood, it’s economic, social and environmental implications, and how it factors into rating systems, codes and sourcing practices are addressed. This program is registered with the AIA for 1 HSW/SD hour. Take the course.

  • Wood Acetylation: Offering a Non-Toxic Path to Preserve Wood

    This course is registered for 1 AIA CEH and will provide learners with knowledge of wood acetylation and an understanding of the numerous benefits of acetylated wood products. It looks at long-lasting performance benefits and describes how acetylated wood is a sustainable product that has been modified through a process that leaves no toxic substances in the wood. We will look at how the product has improved dimensional stability while maintaining the versatility, and workability of wood. Additionally, participants who are builders, trades people, designers, and architects may see a potential maintenance-cost savings for their clients and an environmental impact reduction because of the low maintenance requirements and improved durability of acetylated wood products. Take the course.

  • Residential Framing to Comply with 2009 IRC Energy and Structural Requirements

    This course covers topics such as manufacturing specifications that OSB and plywood must comply with. We will look into manufacturing standards controlled by the Department of Commerce and other building codes. There are newly implemented grade stamps that will be addressed so that the learner understands what each number or measurement correlates to in comparison to the current grade stamp. Without the proper installation of different materials such as sheathing and flashing, an entire project can be negatively affected by the structures performance due to these occurrences. Take the course.
