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.

Densified Concrete & Densified Polished Concrete
1 AIA HSW CE Hour | AIA Course #: CDI102
AIA Provider: Curcrete Distribution, Inc.
Presenter: Deke Rife
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.
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.
