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. 

Large Format Wall and Floor Tile: Design Challenges and Solutions

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

Today's designers are increasingly preferring large format tile for the monolithic appearance it provides. However, when the tiles become larger, special precautions need to be taken to prevent problems both during installation and throughout the life of the application. Wall applications can be particularly challenging. This course addresses these challenges and provides recommendations for how to achieve an aesthetically pleasing and long lasting installation with large format tiles.

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.

Achieving Green Building Standards With Sustainable Metal Coating Systems.

This course explores options for achieving LEED and LBC credit using sustainable coil and extrusion coating systems for metal building products.
