Understanding HPL and the Benefits of Rainscreen Applications  
1 AIA HSW Credit Hour | AIA Course #: TNA14
AIA Provider: Trespa North America
Presenter: Steve McKenney
Course Description:
Identify HPL through the manufacturing process and product performance, as well as the principles
of back-ventilated rainscreen cladding. Evaluate guidelines for proper design and construction of
rainscreen applications. Distinguish appropriate cladding for back-ventilated rainscreen cladding.
Learning Objectives:
1. Identify HPL through the manufacturing process and observation of product performance using
    diagrams of product construction and testing results to evaluate if the product is applicable for
    project requirements.
2. Apply rainscreen cladding methods to current projects. By demonstrating advantages such as
    improved ventilation, reduced moisture accumulation and heat gain, as well as protection of load
    bearing walls, participants will be able to evaluate the potential benefits of using rainscreen
3. Design and construction of rainscreen systems by observing various attachment systems, panel
    characteristics, building codes, and how these components interact. Diagrams, project examples,
    detailed sections, and testimonials on system performance will serve as case studies for learning
    and identifying essential elements within rainscreen systems.  
4. Experiment with integrated decorative surfaces that use pigmented resins. Participants will learn the
    benefits of materials that go through an Electronic Beam Curing process.

The Health Product Declaration (HPD):  An Ingredient List for the Built Environment
AIA course number: GCE00F | 1 AIA HSW CE Hour
GBCI ID: 920000114 | 1 GBCI CE Hour (pending)
AIA Provider: GreenCE
Presenter:  Glen Phillips 
Course Description:
The average American spends the vast majority of their time indoors. However, most people are not unaware of the numerous chemicals and materials they are exposed to on a daily basis, nor do they understand the hazards associated with these substances. As such, the need for a standardized way of reporting the health impacts of building materials is desperately needed. In this one-hour course, the design professional will become familiar with the Health Product Declaration TM (HPD), a material ingredient reporting standard developed under the guidance of the HPD Collaborative TM. We will explore how HPDs contribute to the creation of healthier buildings, how to read and interpret an HPD, and how the HPD can contribute to points in LEED v4.
Learning Objectives:
·    Define the objective of the HPD
·    Discuss why the HPD is important for human health, and how it can contribute to healthier

·    Explain how products with an HPD can contribute to points in LEED v4
·    Recognize the HPD format, and understand what constitutes a “compliant” HPD
·    Interpret the information presented in an HPD and appreciate how HPD can be used by design

10:50 - 11:50 AM
Surface Innovation - Redefining Boundaries of Interior and Exterior Spaces with Ultracompact Surfacing – ‘Dekton’ by Cosentino
1 AIA HSW CE Hour | AIA Course #:COS06E
AIA Provider: InfoSpec, Inc.
Sponsor: Cosentino
Presenter:  Pothara In
Course Description:
In this course, we explore a cutting edge surfacing technology, ultracompact surfacing. Gain insight into how this surfacing material possesses the same characteristics of natural stone while providing unmatched color and design flexibility.
Learning Objectives:
1.  Discuss the evolution of surfaces and the various types of surfacing material for interior and
     exterior applications.
2.  Define ultracompact surfacing and the innovative production process that creates intrinsically
     unique properties.
3.  Discuss designing with ultracompact surfaces in terms color, texture, and format.
4.  Discuss the advantages of compact surfaces in terms of strength, durability, chemical resistance,
     absorption, abrasion resistance, and ASTM testing.
5.  Identify possible interior/exterior application options with ultracompact surfacing material.
