Exterior Continuous Insulated Claddings for Energy Efficiency and Architectural Diversity
1 AIA HSW CE Hour | Course: BL0002
1 GBCI CE Hour for LEED Professionals | GBCI Course ID: 0090005704
AIA Provider: Dryvit System, Inc.
Presenter: Mike Leroy
1. Deconstruct the "perceived" value of traditional insulation methods and reduced performance
within framed wall assemblies and reconstruct new strategies for developing true "effective"
insulation value and high performance.
2. Identify and define model energy code and green design standard's requirements for exterior
3. Differentiate between "prescriptive" R-value "performance" U-factor wall design paths and
recognize where continuous insulation must be integrated.
4. Discover the interrelationship between exterior insulated cladding and the use of continuous
insulation to achieve energy efficient, cost effective and aesthetically pleasing design solutions.

Roofing Market Trends & Advantages of Fleeceback Membrane & Urethane Adhesives
1 AIA CE Hour | Course: SDT110
AIA Provider: Carlisle Syntec
Presenter: Mike Gowl
1. Physical performance advantages of fleece membranes that enable them to resist the
forces of mother nature such as wind, rain and cold.
2. Performance advantages of urethane adhesives that eliminate the dependence on solvents
with VOC's or asphalt derived from foreign sources of oil.
3. Re-roofing advantages afforded by fleece membranes that can re-use existing roofing
systems and minimize landfill waste.
4. Multiple-ply membrane options utilizing highly reflective T or extremely weatherable EPDM
as the cap sheet.

Presenter: Mark Tachino
•Define and describe the material characteristics of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE).
•Describe how HDPE recycled content reduces environmental impact.
•List several ways HDPE materials offer both initial and long term improvements to the indoor
air quality of any project.
•Explain how responsible manufacturing is a critical part of any product’s life cycle assessment and
give several examples of these environmental improvements over traditional manufacturing processes.
03:20 - 04:20 PM
Expanded Polystyrene - The Economical Choice for Roofing Insulation
1 AIA HSW CE Hour | Course Number: EPS105
AIA Provider: Carlisle Construction Materials
Presenter: Jason Myers
• Define and understand how Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is manufactured

LEED, thermal performance, and energy efficiency.
• Understanding key physical properties of the different EPS products used in Roofing applications.
• Understand the features and benefits of the different EPS products: standard, faced, and
composites and which roofing applications they are used in.
• Understand the economic advantages when using EPS in different roofing applications than
other insulations. Case Study examples cited. Understand what key components to consider
when preparing a specification for EPS vs another insulation product in a roofing application:
R-Value, Compressive Strength, Codes, Product Performance, Labor Costs, LEED and
Sustainability, Product Availability and Warranty.
