Presenter: Joe Petty
Course Description:
Understand the advancement of national model energy codes as they relate to the energy
efficiency of the building envelope define and understand "continuous insulation" and how
its use effects energy code compliance, the current ASHRAE 90.1 Standard, LEED and the
IECC. Understand the NFPA 285 fire test and its role in code complaint wall assemblies.
Discuss the environmental features and benefits of polyiso insulation including thermal
performance, long service life, recycled content, negligible GWP and zero ODP.
Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the advancement of the national model energy codes as they relate to
    the energy efficiency of the building envelope.
2. Define and understand "Continuous Insulation" and how its use effects energy code
    compliance, the current ASHRAE 90.1 Standard, LEED, and the International Energy
    Conservation Code.
3. Understand the NFPA 285 fire test and its role in code complaint wall assemblies.
4. Discuss the environmental features and benefits of polyiso insulation including   
    thermal performance, long service life, recycled content, negligible GWP and zero

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn the industry trends in the use of various roofing systems and why these trends
    are occurring.
2. Learn about the various types of thermoplastic membranes (compounds, fabric
    reinforcements, fleece backings) and the latest technology in membrane securement.
3. Learn about thermoplastic membrane reflectivity levels (new and aged) and how this
    affects energy usage, potential condensation accumulation, and LEED certification.
4. Learn how environmental forces (UV, heat, wind, etc.) affect long-term thermoplastic
    roofing membrane performance.

Updated - Steep Sloped Premium Stone Coated Metal Roofing Systems
1 AIA HSW CE Hour | New AIA Course #: IMU07G
AIA Provider: Gerard Roofing Technologies
Presenter: Derek Chalk
Course Description:
This course will better inform the designer on how to properly specify stone
coated metal roofing system. Through a thorough review of installation procedures, cost breakdown
and system benefits to any project, the design professional attending this educational presentation
will be able to knowledgably specify a stone coated metal roofing system into their next project.
Learning Objectives:
1. Define stone coated metal and depict how stone coated metal roofing is
    manufactured and explain how benefits such as greater longevity lead to reduced
    labor and waste and other benefits relate to protection in natural disasters.
2. Describe the installation methods for stone coated metal roofing systems and discuss
    how specifying stone coated metal roofing systems may contribute towards a project
    earning LEED certification.
3. Describe how stone coated metal roofing systems are energy efficient & Energy Star
    qualified.
4. Explain the cost benefits of stone coated metal roofing systems.

Densified Concrete & Densified Polished Concrete (added course for one credit -
not Building Envelope)
1 AIA LU CE Hour | AIA Course #: CDI102
AIA Provider: Curecrete Distribution, Inc.
Presenter: Vernon Talbot
Course Description:
Learn more about the differences between densified concrete and densified-polished concrete.
Identify how chemical densifiers can enhance the performance of concrete floors and the many
alternatives and choices that are available on the market today. Also learn more about densified-
polished concrete and how this process takes densified concrete one step further, providing all
the benefits of a chemically densified floor, with an aesthetically pleasing decorative finish.
Learning Objectives:
1. Identify the differences between "densified concrete" and "densified-polished    
    concrete."
2. Identify the challenges, disadvantages of using floor coatings and membranes as
    opposed to chemical densifiers.
3. Identify the advantages of using chemical densifiers over floor coatings and
    membranes. Identify the added benefits that polishing can add to densified concrete
    and the low life cycle cost factor when compared to other types of flooring materials
    and coverings such as tile, terrazzo, etc.
4. Learn how the process of concrete densification eliminates the need for additional
    applications, and can enhance the overall performance of concrete for the life of the
    floors, when using the right chemical densifier product.
