1. Specifying Air Barrier Membranes that Comply with Building Code Fire Safety Provisions
Presenter: Brian Carey – Carlisle Coatings & Waterproofing (CCW)
Abstract: Contemporary requirements related to commercial wall assembly design have resulted in increased energy efficiency but also present new challenges to meeting building code fire safety provisions. This presentation will provide attendees with information related to air barrier membranes and the proper integration of these materials into fire-safe wall assemblies. This presentation can provide AIA LU/HSW learning credit for attendees who request it from the presenter.
About the Presenter: Brian Carey is employed by Carlisle Coatings & Waterproofing where serves as the company’s Product Manager for their Air & Vapor Barrier line. He is a member of ABAA’s Technical Committee and E&O Committee. Brian has worked in both technical and sales capacities in the adhesives, sealants and coatings business since 1993. Brian holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemical Engineering and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in French from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
2. Wind Design of Roof Systems – What’s New, What’s the Same
Presenter: Jennifer Keegan – GAF
Abstract: Wind design of roof systems can be complicated. Let’s face it, there’s math involved! The latest version of ASCE 7 has only added complexity to the design process. This presentation will focus on understanding the design process laid out in ASCE 7-16, as well as discuss the similarities and differences between the three versions of ASCE 7 (-05, -10, and -16). Changes to ASCE 7-16 influence related wind design methods. This presentation will also discuss updates to FM’s wind design process and the requirements within their related Loss Prevention Data Sheets (e.g., LPDS 1-28 and 1-29). This presentation can provide AIA LU/HSW learning credit for attendees who request it from the presenter.
About the Presenter: Jennifer Keegan is the Director of Building and Roof Science at GAF. Ms. Keegan holds degrees in architecture from Lehigh University and is an experienced building enclosure consultant who engages with architects, specifiers and consultants to help them design high performance roofs and mitigate their risk by educating them on the science behind roof system performance.
3. Glass in Guards – Cantilevered Laminated Glass Balustrades
Presenter: Adam Nizich – Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc.
Abstract: This presentation will provide attendees with information on design fundamentals related to the use of glass in laminated glass balustrades, including (1) discussing post-fracture performance characteristics and design objectives, (2) classifying the structural use of glass in guards, (3) summarizing International Building Code design and testing requirements for glass in guards, and (4) assessing support of cantilevered laminated glass for balustrades. This presentation can provide AIA LU/HSW learning credit for attendees who request it from the presenter.
About the Presenter: Adam Nizich belongs to SGH’s Building Technology group in the Washington, DC Office. He has eight years’ experience in the design and engineering of — and consulting for — innovative facades and glass structures. Adam applies his material knowledge and technical skills to a wide range of enclosure projects. He is published in the structural analysis of laminated glass and curved insulating glass units. Adam contributes to ASTM standard development and leads a task group development a guide for effective thickness evaluation of laminated glass.
4. Achieving Energy Efficiency with Skylights in the Building Envelope
Presenter: Steve Kadivnik – Artistic Skylight
Abstract: Skylights can provide various benefits to the building envelope while introducing daylighting-related benefits to occupant productivity, health, and well-being. Skylights are rated for energy efficiency with consideration to requirements contained in building codes such as the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and are rated for performance characteristics in accordance with the North American Fenestration Standards (NAFS) and other standard criteria (e.g., impact resistance for fall protection). This presentation will provide information on the details and process of achieving skylight performance and compliance, will review AAMA guidelines for proper sloped glazing installation methods, and will highlight installation best practices. This presentation can provide AIA LU/HSW learning credit for attendees who request it from the presenter.
About the Presenter: Steve has worked in the construction industry for over 25 years in various roles as a general contractor, manufacturer’s representative, and project manager. He is currently the Technical Representative for Artistic Skylight. His experience and hands-on approach have brought him exposure to residential/commercial roofing and fenestration applications, and this experience allows him to provide practical, trusted skylight refurbishment and optimal daylighting solutions to building envelope professionals, engineers, architects, and contractors. He also strives to understand the client’s success factors to ensure schedule and budget are met while achieving the required performance. Steve is an active member of Construction Specifications Canada and numerous other industry associations.
