Fiberglass Fenestration in Commercial Buildings

Course Description 

Whether designing sustainable commercial or institutional building types, architects carefully consider the qualities and long-term advantages of fenestration materials. Windows and doors provide essential protection and architectural character to a building, and must also respond to owner-driven requirements like aesthetics, cost, performance, maintenance, and life cycle. 

Fiberglass composite is suitable for windows and doors in any climate or building type. More durable than aluminum or vinyl, with the thermal efficiency of wood,  fiberglass composite windows are an economically competitive alternative to aluminum and vinyl windows. The multiple advantages and benefits of fiberglass composite make it a versatile fenestration choice because of its strength, durability, low maintenance, energy  efficiency, and sustainable qualities, as well as its resistance to corrosion, dents, and scratches.   


Course Description 

This course will introduce the learner to the latest standards, requirements, benefits and approaches of continuous insulation systems. The learner will review how non-conductive composite subframing systems can benefit the performance and resiliency of building envelope construction while contributing to the health, safety and welfare of the project participants.

Creative Freedom Through Targeted Acoustics

Course Description 

The purpose of this course is for Architects, Interior Designers, and industry professionals to understand the importance of room acoustics in building planning, and its impact on healthcare, work productivity, and the learning environment.

Mine Subsidence: Cause, Effect, Mitigation

Description: This presentation covers key aspects of mine subsidence engineering, a subject that is not well understood, and embraces a number of engineering disciplines. It focuses on the causes of mine subsidence and how mine stability relates to the resulting ground movements. Different mining and geologic conditions determine the mode of failure of the mine. The mode of mine failure in turn affects the resulting subsidence movement.

Innovative Cement Board Applications with Continuous Insulation

Course Description 

Provides an overview of cement boards and their use in exterior applications. The program is focused on Cement Board Stucco Systems (CBSS) and Cement Board Masonry Veneer (CBMV) systems using Continuous Insulation as an option to meet the International Energy Conservation Code requirements. The program reviews CBSS and CBMV components, details and performance benefits for occupant comfort. 

Modern Simulation Tools in Building Science and their Application

Description: Today's building enclosures are more energy efficient than decades ago, mainly due to a higher level of insulation and air tightness requirements; however, the downside is an increased risk of moisture problems with potential structural failure and unhealthy indoor air quality.
