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.

FEVE Architectural Coatings: High Performance Coatings for Expansive, Sustainable Design

In this one-hour course, we will discover the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats. We will evaluate coating performance tests, including accelerated weathering and real-time weathering, and what the implications are for the life of different coatings. We will explore the many design possibilities that FEVE technology provides, and assess the sustainability benefits of FEVE topcoats, despite their high initial cost, compared to other topcoat formulations

Roof Hatch Safety Railing Systems 101

This course introduces a roof hatch and roof hatch safety railing system and explores the OSHA standard (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.29), which details the requirements for roof hatch safety railing systems. The reason that many building owners choose to install these systems as an extra precaution and key features that differentiate the railing systems in the market will also be discussed. 

"Suspended Wood Ceilings: Design to Delivery" from 9Wood

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course covers the benefits of suspended wood ceilings; materials including wood options such as veneers, solid wood or reclaimed wood; sustainability attributes; and performance characteristics. It features a comprehensive discussion of the key factors that inform and influence the specification of a suspended wood ceiling.

A "Systems Approach" to resilient sustainability

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

Particular focus in this panel discussion is on energy-efficiency and water mitigation. With a major push toward energy-efficiency and reduced carbon footprints while insuring that structures remain functional, many municipalities and states—notably California and New York—are pushing to reduce and, eventually, eliminate fossil fuel as the major source of energy while insuring that buildings perform or "bounce back" after natural or man-made disasters.

Advanced Waterproofing Solutions with a PUMA System

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This presentation describes overcoming waterproofing challenges by utilizing a liquid-applied PUMA system. PUMA is a cold fluid-applied waterproofing system with quick-curing technology providing longterm stability, permanent UV exposure resistance to impact, scratches, punctures and slip resistance.

PUMA technical advances allow for waterproofing certainty where sheet-applied membranes are difficult to install due to complex design and construction requirements. Through this step-by-step presentation, you will understand how PUMA may solve common installation obstacles and how to properly specificity/install a PUMA system to suit project specific needs. Enjoy an engaged discussion, find out which system is right for your project, and ask project specific questions.

Beautiful and Sustainable Buildings

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course explores a selection of specific materials and systems that can help architects create buildings designed to do a better job contributing to occupant health and comfort through improved indoor air quality, improved daylight harvesting, increased relative available space within a structure, and through meeting code-mandated thermal requirements.
