Who’s the Culprit in WRB-AB Leakage?

1 AIA LU/HSW
1 AIBD P-CE
0.1 IACET CEU

Extreme weather events can stress wall assemblies, causing water to enter the building envelope. Explore how fasteners attached to sheathing become a point of vulnerability during extreme weather events, and discover best practices for cladding attachment options depending on factors like climate, building form, and architectural complexity, among others.

Changing the Way We Think of Prefabrication: New Solutions for Your Building Envelope

1 AIA LU/HSW
1 AIBD P-CE
0.1 IACET CEU

Learn how prefabricated construction is advancing in vertical segments from hospital to government, hospitality to office, and beyond. Prefabrication firms are expanding, and new design-build business models, including their own prefabrication factories, are disrupting traditional building approaches with significant success.

Making Transitions: Keeping Air and Water Barriers Continuous

1 AIA LU/HSW
1 AIBD P-CE
0.1 IACET CEU

In this course, we will focus on three transition areas: wall to foundation, openings, and roof to wall. Further, recognizing the innovations and risk mitigation needed in building envelope design, we will also look at the latest advances in all-in-one, integrated gypsum sheathing that include WRB and AB systems during manufacturing as alternatives to field-applied water- and air-barrier systems.

The Evolution of Water-Resistive and Air Barriers in Commercial Building Envelope Construction

1 AIA LU/HSW
1 AIBD P-CE
0.1 IACET CEU

Understand the key functions required by building codes for water-resistive barriers, continuous air barriers, vapor retarders, and thermal barriers in a building envelope/enclosure.

Specifying Levels of Finish for Gypsum Wallboard

1 AIA LU/HSW
1 AIBD P-CE
0.1 IACET CEU

Provides an overview of gypsum wallboard manufacturing, a review of the Gypsum Association’s recommended levels of finish and examples of writing specification of levels of finish.

Interior Fiberglass Mat Gypsum Panels: Benefits for Sustainable Construction

1 AIA LU/HSW
1 AIBD P-CE
0.1 IACET CEU

Overview of fiberglass mat gypsum panels and explains potential contribution to LEED® certification and sustainable building codes and standards, as well as addresses issues of indoor air quality and construction scheduling.

Benefits of High-Performance Gypsum Panels for Moisture Mgmt. and Project Scheduling

1 AIA LU/HSW
1 AIBD P-CE
0.1 IACET CEU

This course considers the design of energy-efficient buildings, which must include an effective, lasting, moisture-management strategy. Moisture management is essential to resilient, sustainable, healthy buildings.

Durability in Commercial Roofing Assemblies

1 AIA LU/HSW
1 AIBD P-CE
0.1 IACET CEU

Provides an overview of the types and performance characteristics of cover board materials used in commercial roofing assemblies, along with a discussion of the forces that threaten roof-system durability.

Selecting Rigid Cover Boards in Commercial Roofing Systems

1 AIA LU/HSW
1 AIBD P-CE
0.1 IACET CEU

The course discusses the evolution of roofing cover boards; explains how the forces of nature affect roof function and durability; summarizes the advantages related to the construction process and cost benefits when including a cover board; and states the roof system types, specialty systems, and attachment options that can be utilized specifically with glass mat gypsum cover boards.

Overview of Firewalls and the Use of Glass-Mat Gypsum Shaftliner Panels

1 AIA LU/HSW
1 AIBD P-CE
0.1 IACET CEU

Provides an overview of the advantages of using fiberglass mat shaftliner panels for firewall assemblies in multi-story, multi-family housing, and covers the installation procedures and special conditions.
