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.

Maximize Thermal Performance with Lightweight Precast Concrete Modular Cladding – Explore how lab-tested R-values deliver high-performance envelopes

Program: Architecture, Design, and Building Science

This course will demonstrate the significant difference that can exist between prescriptive and lab-tested R-values and offer architects important insights into the various ways that lightweight precast concrete modular cladding is able to deliver an envelope with much improved thermal performance over the traditional built-up solution.

Moisture Mitigation, Surface Prep and Floor Covering Systems

This course teaches about the source and prevention of health and safety risks of moisture transmission/high pH through a concrete substrate and its effect on flooring adhesives and coverings. The health and safety risks include mold, mildew, standing water, sick building syndrome, previous needfor use of solvent based, high VOC adhesives instead of water-based, high moisture tolerance vinyl/carpet adhesives available today. This course also teaches about concrete floor flatness and how to measure and install a flat surface using self-leveling underlayments/skim coats for floor coverings torequire, along with the moisture vapor barrier and adhesives, a single source system with long term warranty for all sub flooring components.

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.

Optimizing Performance in Aluminum Fenestration

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course introduces the role of a thermal barrier in improving the thermal performance of windows, doors, storefront and curtain wall applications. Advancements in material science and the aluminum profile of the fenestration are enabling window assemblies to achieve lower U-values than previously possible, allowing designers to deliver building envelopes that provide access to daylight and views, without compromising the thermal efficiency of the project. 

Pattern Mapping for Lasting Design

A Pattern Map evaluates a pattern on two key elements: structure and nature. This course explains why these two elements affect how we recognize and respond to pattern and examines ways to bridge architecture and nature by using architectural panel systems with patterned openings, and provide a sense of space, privacy, shade, or camouflage with cladding, screens, or railings.
