Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavers

Permeable interlocking concrete pavers have the ability to create solid, strong surfaces for pedestrians and a range of vehicular uses, and can help maintain a site’s existing natural hydrologic function. This course discusses the goals of a permeable paver system and the materials used. It compares permeable pavers with other stormwater management systems and describes the proper installation of a permeable paver system.

Multi-Tenant Multi-Story Exhaust for Bathroom Fans, Clothes Dryers & Range Hoods

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course covers the many benefits of UL classified factory-built ventilation duct assemblies that are specifically used for common ducting multi-story tenant space appliances such as bathroom fans, clothes dryers, or domestic range hoods. The webinar will also speak to the code requirements related to the fire/smoke control system as well as the benefits of demand control ventilation practices with specifically designed fans for these applications, which make for a complete UL factory-built ventilation system.

Measuring-up Healthy Buildings: Modes, Methods, and Meaning for Discovery and Practice

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This is the video recording of a course presented at Greenbuild 2018. Sustainable buildings have typically been measured in two ways: by their reduction in resource consumption and their achievement of green building certifications. However, neither of these criteria measure the most important aspect of the building – its impact on occupants’ comfort, health, well-being, and productivity. In order to accurately record and generalize this information, longitudinal, pre-and post-occupancy evaluation studies are crucial. This session will explore the methodology behind the 36-month occupant’s multi-comfort study conducted at the Saint-Gobain & CertainTeed North American Headquarters in Malvern, Pa., in partnership with the University of Oregon’s High Performance Environments Lab (HiPE). The presentation will delve into the methods and protocols that guided this research study as well as the findings related to thermal, visual, acoustical comfort, and indoor air quality as well as occupant productivity, satisfaction, health and well-being. It will also explore how Saint-Gobain was able to utilize the headquarters as a living laboratory to measure the impact of its sustainable building materials and systems on occupant’s satisfaction.

Specifying Grab Bars for People of All Sizes

Program: Architecture, Design, and Building Science

Architects are increasingly being asked to consider people of size in their designs. Unfortunately, there is no existing design standard that addresses the needs of this group. This course will explore the special considerations that must be made when selecting and specifying a grab bar that will support the growing segment of the population referred to as people of size.

The Pathway to NetZero PLUS with Pearl Homes & sonnen, using solar and Smart Home

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course is a video recording of a presentation delivered at GreenBuild 2018. For more than a decade, experts have sought an answer to the solar energy conundrum: How to generate and store clean solar for our homes and businesses. This case study describes a successful building system project using solar battery storage. Jointly, Pearl Homes, USGBC's Power Builder of the Year and the leader in LEED Platinum residential developments, and sonnen, a provider of intelligent energy storage and sharing technology, detail the first NetZero PLUS Pearl Home, integrating LEED design, Google Smart Home, and sonnen's world-renowned intelligent energy communities to create virtual power plants, generating, storing and sharing clean solar with each other and the grid.
