Continuous Insulation and Beyond
1 AIA HSW CE Hour | Course: HP104
AIA Provider: Hunter Panels: K169
Presenter: Andy Myers
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.

Course Title: Incorporating Pest Barriers into the Building Envelope
Course number: IPO07A
AIA Provider: Polyguard Products, Inc.
Presenter: John Muncaster
The building envelope has proven its value in controlling energy loss and moisture. But why not design the envelope to also act as a pest barrier? Research beginning in 2000 has proven that there are several materials which can block termites, insects, and other pests from entry to a structure. A tested and proven insect barrier sealant with elastomeric properties can: 1. Seal off almost all pest entry points, and 2. Stretch over the myriad gaps, crevices, and cracks which occur in all structures from differential movement of building components. By drastically reducing the opportunity for pest entry, there can be a significant reduction in pesticides needed to eliminate the pests.
1. Explain the amount of pretreatment pesticides currently in use.
2. Describe the numerous ways pests enter structures.
3. Explain the interactions between state pest control regulators and building code officials in new
construction pest control considerations.
4. Discuss several new materials and design alternatives to incorporate pest barriers into the building
5. Explain three new levels of pest barriers, ranging from low to premium in cost, for specifiers to
6. Discuss LEED credits applicable to the new material and design alternatives.

2012 TAS – Accessibility by Building Type: MULTI-USE FACILITIES
1 AIA HSW CE Hour | AIA Course #: IFC00B
1 ADA Hour for Licensed Architects | Accessibility/ADA/Barrier-Free
Provider: InfoSpec, Inc.
Sponsor: ARS - Accessibility Resource Specialists PLLC
Presenter: Fred D. Cawyer AIA, NCARB, RAS, APA
Seminar Goals & Learning Objectives:
Introduction to the 2012 Texas Accessibility Standards (TAS) requirements addressing
the design and construction of multi-use facilities – effective and mandatory for
all such buildings and sites in the United States on and after the 15th of March 2012.
Specific review of accessibility standards addressing multi-use facilities.
A “virtual” tour of the newly renovated Texas A&M University - MSC by the RAS-of-
Record. Virtual tour will address both the exterior site and the interior portions
of the additions & renovations of the building complex.
Discussion of the myriad accessibility issues that had to be met during design and
construction; and, presentation will address the “above and beyond” selection
criteria used by the Governor’s Committee representatives in the State Award.

Drafting an Understanding of Polished Concrete
1 AIA HSW CE Hour | AIA Course #: AFP1
AIA Provider: Advanced Floor Products (RetroPlate) Provider number J550
Presenter: Deke Rife
Today we can give an old worn-out concrete floor “NEW” life through the polishing
and densification process. This course is designed to give an overview of that process,
the marriage of concrete densification of and grinding and polishing concrete with diamonds.

Cold-formed Steel Framing and Metal Laths: From Design to Application – A Tour
2 HSW CE Hours | AIA Course #: CEM05E
AIA Provider: Ron Blank & Associates, Inc
Sponsor: California Expanded Metal Company (CEMCO)
Speaker: Steve Farkas
This course is designed to provide architects, designers, engineers, and specification writers a practical and useful foundation of knowledge to better understand and apply cold-formed steel framing and metal lath products in their design of commercial, industrial, and residential projects.
1. Accurately determine which products are suitable for use of interior and exterior wall applications.
2. Determine the correct type of steel to be specified for commercial, residential, and institutional
Cold-formed steel framing projects.
3. Explain the various manufacturing processes and how these processes contribute to producing a
very specific product for a specific intended application based on the requirements needed for
either framing or exterior finish of a project.
4. Discuss how the technology and manufacture of steel framing and metal lath contribute to code
approved building systems and fire-rated assemblies.
Each one will be supplied with safety glasses and hearing protection. Please note that it is mandatory to wear closed toe shoes. No high heels for the ladies (tennis shoes are acceptable).
Also, the plant will be in full-swing production while we are out there, and since it is a steel processing facility, it will be loud, a bit dirty and filled with a lot of activity.
This Agenda is not a final schedule, and is subject to updates, additions and changes.
