The Health Product Declaration (HPD): An Ingredient List for the Built Environment
AIA course number: GCE00G | 1 AIA HSW CE Hour
GBCI ID: 920001080 | 1 GBCI CE Hour
AIA Provider: GreenCE
Presenter: Deke Rife
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.
· Define the objective of the HPD
· Discuss why the HPD is important for human health, and how it can contribute to healthier buildings
· 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
12:30 PM Lunch Sponsored by Max Rodgers with RM Rodgers, Inc.

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

Updated - Steep Sloped Premium Stone Coated Metal Roofing Systems
1 AIA HSW CE Hour | AIA Course #: IMU07G - New course #
AIA Provider: Gerard Roofing Technologies
Presenter: John Quint
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.
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 ansd discuss how
specifying stone coated metal roofing systems may contribute towards a project earning LEED

Incorporating Pest Barriers into the Building Envelope
1 AIA HSW Credit Hour | AIA Course #: IPO07A
AIA Provider: Polyguard Products, Inc.
Presenter: Jill Heidorf
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.
4:45- 5:45 PM (3:50 - 4:50)

chemical densifiers. Identify the advantages of using chemical densifiers over floor coatings
3. 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.
4. 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.
