This course will compare and contrast methods of preventing fire, smoke, and sound passage within/between wall assemblies. We'll explore different types of structural movement that may occur and the impact to building components and their connections over time. Next, we will examine how movement impacts interior finishes and identify solutions, and the steps that must be taken to prevent damage from movement to building components. By the end of the course, the learner will be able to make more informed decisions in the marketplace of fire and sound rated solutions designed for wall joints.
Architectural stone veneer has long been used to elevate the design of building facades, but more recently, itâ€™s found its way indoors and is becoming a mainstay of interior design. â€śThereâ€™s been a real upswing in the number of projects on both residential and commercial when it comes to accentuating a space or an environment with stone,â€ť says Sarah Lograsso, director of marketing for Eldorado Stone.
Hear about whatâ€™s behind this trend and the exciting options stone veneer can open up for architects and designers.
This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. This course will explore the versatility of wood plastic composites, with a specific focus on composite rainscreen cladding. It will cover the sustainability of wood plastic composites from manufacturing, performance, and life cycle perspectives. We will also discuss color and design options for composite cladding, as well as applications in the residential and commercial sectors.

Americans are increasingly turning to professional builders and remodelers for their home renovation projects. But homeowners looking to increase the value of their residences need to be strategic in their upgrades. For builders and remodelers, that means the opportunity is now back on the table to offer homeowners cost-effective and stunning ways to improve the value of their homes, while employing one of the most versatile and easy-to-work with building materials available: wood.
Webinar On-Demand:Â This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. When structural stability and thermal continuity collide, structure has historically taken precedence necessitating tradeoffs such as increased insulation in other areas or acceptance of energy loss and potential moisture damage. The foundation transition from below grade to masonry ledge to masonry veneer wall is one such challenge. What if there was a solution? This presentation explores solutions for perimeter foundation insulation including information needed to specify and install correctly.
Achieving optimal comfort requires focusing on design principles and selecting materials that address acoustics, indoor air quality, daylighting, cleanability and more â€” everything occupants see, hear, and feel. Some of the most significant contributors to the aesthetics and performance of interior spaces are ceilings and walls. Todayâ€™s architectural ceiling and wall solutions are sophisticated products that play an enormous role in occupant comfort. This course will explore how architects and designers can improve occupant health and well-being through the use of acoustic ceiling and wall systems in the built environment (more specifically in offices, classrooms, and healthcare facilities, where people spend a great deal of time).
This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. Rain is one of the most important things to control in wall construction for both a buildingâ€™s structural integrity and the occupantsâ€™ health. Join us in this one-hour course as we discuss the aesthetic, performance, and sustainable attributes of wood-plastic composites (WPCs) for use in rainscreen applications. Participants will gain a new understanding of how WPC cladding should be applied and fastened in rainscreen systems.
The intent of this article is to explain how Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) compares to Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC), Fiber Cement and Precast Concrete (from a material performance and faĂ§ade perspective) and provide architects with a clear set of essential tools that will help to facilitate optimal design and installation of UHPC rainscreen facades. Subsequently, the article will also discuss which drivers may shift the expense of a UHPC faĂ§ade project and explain how to achieve the best installed appearance and performance characteristics through the use of recommended specifications and attachment solutions.
This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. Architectural metal wall and roof panel systems lend themselves to practically unlimited applications in almost any climate or environment. Residential, institutional, commercial, retail, recreational, industrial, hospitality, multifamily, and mixed-use structures all are ideal applications for architectural metal wall and roof products.
This course provides design options for metal roof systems and metal architectural wall panels for numerous applications and examines case studies in which these products have been innovatively used.
