Learning with Lunch - Vero Beach

Return to: Calendar

Start: Thursday, January 10, 2019

Location: CJ Cannons Restaurant

Time: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

In an effort to provide the AIA requirement of 18 hours of continuing education per year, the chapter this year will periodically offer two one hour sessions on the same day.­ The section meeting this month will begin at 11:00 am and end at 1:00 pm. Members have the option to attend either course or both.
­
Course 1
Course Title:­­ Code Compliant Exterior Systems for Wood Framed Building Envelopes
­
Course Description:
This course investigates the most recent code changes emphasizing building envelope performance. We will explore next generation integrated solutions that simultaneously provide protection against moisture penetration, air leakage, and thermal bridging. Installation benefits and on-site quality control issues related to multi-solution integrated systems will also be evaluated.
­
Learning Objectives:­ ­
Participants will:
• Delineate the latest code and design standards for wood framed exterior wall assemblies.
• Assess the various product approaches to meet air barrier and water-resistive barriers (WRBs) available today.
• Analyze the differences between multi-product solutions and single product solutions for wood framed building envelopes.
• Articulate the benefits of continuous insulation added to exterior sheathing.

Course 2
Course Title:­­ High Performing Resilient Wood Framed Roofs
­
Course Description:
This course provides an overview and discussion of resilient construction methods related to roof construction. We start by defining resiliency as a design objective, then investigate the financial ramifications of natural disasters on structures not designed with resiliency in mind. We describe numerous programs that promote resilient construction in the US, including a program designed to provide insurance discounts to homeowners that build to resilient standards. Finally, the program describes the construction techniques that qualify as resilient practices and provides a financial comparison of the costs of these practices.
­
Learning Objectives:­ ­
Participants will:
• Identify and recognize the natural environmental forces that affect the design considerations of wood-framed roof systems.
• Assess the advantages and disadvantages of resilient vs. non-resilient design.
• Compare and contrast the performance characteristics of the components of a wood-framed roof system.
• Provide best practice solutions for resilient design of wood-framed roofs.
