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

Introduction to Coatings
The presentation covers high-performance PVDF coatings (Kynar), Baked Enamel, Anodize and Powder Coat Finishes.
As an AIA/CES Registered Provider, our presentation helps architects, contractors, and other members of the building community to better understand field performance and the application process of architectural coatings while earning valuable learning units. Presentation attendees will learn about the anodizing and paint process, specifications, and performances.
Participants will learn how different paint and anodize coatings rate when compared to architectural specifications - AAMA. Each application process is explained to help those involved with projects assure that a quality finish is provided.

The History of Bathing: The Past Informs the Present
Victoria + Albert baths presents The History of Bathing;- The past informs the present. This course is approved for continuing education credits for ASID, AIA and NKBA. During the one hour session you will be sure to learn a thing or two about the many dates and technologies that shaped the bath as we know it today.

Wood Flooring Types, Choices & Applications
Mercier Wood Flooring is pleased to present a comprehensive examination of the aspects for manufacturing hardwood flooring by identifying the structural components, manufacturing processes, wood species limitations, finish and surface treatment options all within a framework of sustainable development. Learn about 1.how to identify the structural components for three common types of wood flooring; solid, engineered and click-together. 2. List the relative advantages and limitations for each type of wood flooring. 3: Compare the surface treatment options for wood floor finishes. 4: Identify the relative advantages and limitations for a variety of wood species commonly used.
