About

Geothermal Heating and Cooling "A Renewable Energy Technology"
This course will cover several critical topics surrounding our industry today in the world of geothermal heating and cooling. You will learn the basic principles of the geothermal heat pump technology and we will discuss some of the misconceptions that often arise in today’s market. You will walk away with an understanding of how and why geothermal heat pumps systems are so incredibly energy efficient and gain a general understanding of how the four basic systems are designed and work for each job application. This course will elaborate on the hybrid/geothermal heat pump system and explain how it not only gives you the high energy efficiency savings but how this system also gives the owner/user significant savings during the initial installation of the system while providing high energy efficiency and capturing tax incentives for the total cost of the hybrid/geothermal heat pump system. In closing, I will demonstrate to you in a case study of actual energy consumption differences shown between geothermal heat pump systems and VRF (variable flow refrigerant) system on the National Headquarters Office Building or ASHRAE in Atlanta, GA.

Applications in Sustainable Technology of Rooftop Equipment
This course provides an overview of rooftop support systems and includes discussions on:
• Consequences of inadequate support apparatuses
• How to properly manage dead weight on roofing systems without penetrating the roof, while allowing for increased load distribution and flexibility
• How support systems successfully manage loads, as well as thermal movement and vibration
• Selection of proper support components, assemblies and applications, and the importance of their overall performance to the roofing system
• Support system design and installation process

Speech Privacy & Sound Masking in Modern Architecture
Recent research has found that current work environments are fulfilling the needs for collaboration and communication, but are doing a poor job of providing an acoustical environment free from distractions and conducive for productivity and speech privacy. This presentation will cover: • Research on current satisfaction levels in workplace environments • Current design trends and associated acoustic issues • Fundamental acoustic principles • Sound masking technology and what it can and cannot do Participants will leave with an understanding of how to identify interior design factors that will signal the need for sound masking and approaches to address the issues.

LEEDing The Way Through Green Concrete
This Program addresses the impact of the EPA’s limitations on VOC’s inside the building envelope. New limitations are now being placed outside the building envelope that will cause many new challenges to the construction process. The solution knowledge provided by this program measurably improves IAQ, eliminating mass amounts of moisture from the concrete, where there is no moisture, there is no Mold.

Lath Selection & Specification to Enhance Stucco
• Explore stucco and stucco composition
• Evaluate alternative stucco lathing with respect to building sustainability
• Identify the advantages and disadvantages of the various lath products and compare lathing alternatives.
• Review the essential design details for stucco wall systems
• Identify specific challenges of stucco wall systems while reviewing best practices and solutions as they relate to performance and durability
• Explore ASHRAE 90.1 – Title 24 Compliance and review 3 Coat Stucco Alternatives
• Review ASTM standards and ICC Evaluation pertaining to stucco wall design

U-Drain Drainage Systems
This Program is an in-depth study into u-shaped, non-grated, linear floor drains (u-drain); this course explores the efficiency and advantages of this specific type of surface drainage system. This course provides exclusive information on the design and application benefits as well as the installation process of u-drain systems. Expand your knowledge of the cutting edge of surface drainage products.
