Topics and presenters are:

Session One: Fiberglass Window Installation Systems for Commercial Buildings presented by George Ramsay, CSI, CDT, National Architectural Solutions Consultant, Pella Corporation

Credits: AIA and HSW (1 learning unit)

Description: Sustainable fiberglass window systems are being specified and installed more and more in retail facilities, offices, schools, colleges, condominiums, apartments, and many other buildings. They are well suited for a variety of different design applications whether horizontal, vertical or punched window looks are sought. Their installation methods are numerous and suited to a variety of building construction types for both new and existing construction. Regardless of the design intent or installation method used, designing and specifying fiberglass windows into commercial, institutional, and multi-family buildings, yields broad design choices, excellent energy efficiency, resistance to rain and wind, and lasting durability.

Session Two (Chapter Meeting): Frame It Right! by Ron Nuttall, Western Region Technical Director, APA - The Engineered Wood Association

Credits: AIA and HSW (1 learning unit)

Description: Back to basics for big buildings. The demand for commercial and multifamily construction is soaring, and the framing industry is expanding to meet this demand. APA – The Engineered Wood Association has walked hundreds of job sites and identified the most common wood construction framing errors found in today’s nonresidential buildings. This session will examine the consequences of these framing mistakes from the ground up, providing practical solutions for avoiding typical issues using APA’s resources as a guide.

Session Three: Acoustically Enhanced Gypsum Board Designed for High STC Wall Assemblies by Mitch Denman, CSI, CDT, Sales Representative, National Gypsum

Credits: AIA and HSW (1 learning unit)

Description: Over the years sound transmission in wall partitions has been a difficult issue to resolve. The use of sound resilient metal channels, double stud and staggered stud walls filled with insulation was the design professional’s choice. As a result of innovation and a better understanding of acoustics, additional products are now available for the design of high STC wall assemblies.
