Architecture, Design and Building Science

This program's collection of continuing education courses provides the architect/student with a catalog of courses on every construction division. Courses include products and their application, safety, the environmental impact of products, and application case studies. Users can search the catalog using CSI division numbers, keywords, manufacturer names, or product descriptions.

Rethink Water Heating

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course surveys tankless water heating and its zero emission green benefits. Tankless electric technology saves water and energy by heating water on demand instead of maintaining heated water in a tank for many hours when there is no demand. Tankless water heating has a zero greenhouse gas footprint and provides the right balance between performance and efficiency in water heating systems. The many benefits to user well-being and safety are also covered. A review of plumbing code requirements and insights into specification considerations will be shared. This course will identify types of water heating technologies with a focus on Tankless Electric Water Heater (TEWH) function and design.

Lighting and Controls Updates in ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2019

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course explores the latest updates to the lighting and lighting controls requirements defined by the ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2019, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings. The changes include modified lighting power allowances, mandatory commissioning, new rules for modeling lighting systems, and updates to the requirements for side-lighting, daylight-responsive controls and lighting controls in parking garages.

Flexible by Design: Integrated Lighting and Sound Management Solutions for Today’s Interiors

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course will review the fundamental principles of sound management, explore how to design interior spaces to maximize occupants’ comfort, and review emerging tools to solve for both sound and lighting.

It will also focus on the standards that govern acoustic requirements for diverse applications.

Stainless Steel Textured Metals for Resilient Design

The purpose of this presentation is to give you a clear understanding of the features and benefits of textured metals and discover how to best specify stainless steel and metal alloys in your projects. The first part of our talk will introduce the ecological and economic properties of textured stainless steel as well as educate you on the composition of metals and alloys. The second portion of this presentation will illustrate the process of texturing metals and their applications, as well as how to specify them. The session will also review projects that use textured metals -  with beautiful results.

You will be required to download Supplementary Case Study Material from the International Stainless Steel Foundation that pictures and describes exeptional architectural stainless installations around the world. The descriptions reinforce the sustainability, low-maintenance, durability and aesthetic advabtages of designing with metal alloys.
