There is more to an expansion joint system than just the frame and covers. This AIA CES program deals with the life safety specifics of fire barriers, industry standards and testing. In addition, it covers installation concerns, proper detailing of fire barriers, and the current state of joint system verification.The goal is to limit liability and make sure your building and its occupants are not vulnerable to the hazards of fire, smoke and heat transfer.
When it comes to building products in the ever-evolving field of sustainable design and construction, the industry is now expecting a much more encompassing view of a product’s sustainability.American designers are turning an analytical eye to the life cycle impacts of products through Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), and using Health Product Declaration (HPDs) to inventory substances and potential impacts on human health.This brand new CEU discusses how we got here and what lies ahead.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was established in 1990 to protect the civil rights of people with disabilities in employment and access to goods and services. Today, as part of the 2010 SAD standards, failing to abide by ADA requirements in terms of architectural signage, can result in thousands of dollars in fines for facilities and organizations. Learn about the necessary signage considerations which need to be enforced for proper ADA compliance and the latest materials and manufacturing processes available.
Obesity has become an alarming epidemic with enormous implications for our health care system. Obese people require more health care than average people, and there are increased physical problems for staff and attendants in administering that care. Respecting patient dignity and delivering optimum clinical care are primary issues, as are establishing procedures for safeguarding the health and well-being of these patients and their caregivers. Design is a critical tool in the care of and the improved long-term clinical outcomes for bariatric patients. Design concerns: appropriate facilities and space, proper equipment and furnishings.
The challenge faced by many colleges and universities is they have numerous cadre-style dorms that still have plenty of useful life. This leads to another trend where schools undertake remodeling and renovations to not only freshen and modernize the bathrooms, but also to bring them up to code. This course focuses on dormitory bathroom design, including disability accommodation, bather privacy, the problems of mold, mildew and hygiene, and material and product alternatives to help keep bathrooms and showers cleaner.
This course offers an in depth examination of the materials used for all levels of wall protection in interior applications, and offers strategies for designing and specifying the appropriate materials and placement for effective wall and corner protection. It includes a description of each application rated by level of protection, installation options, raw materials that may contribute toward LEED® credits, price point and maintenance/life cycle factors for each material.
Buildings wage a constant battle against Mother Nature. In addition to wind and weather, buildings must be able to withstand movement – whether from thermal conditions, seismic tremors or windload. This course addresses some of the basic knowledge needed to understand the role expansion joint systems play in structural integrity. In addition, it addresses some of the common field problems encountered in putting joint systems in place. And finally, it presents a challenging look at fire barriers and the changes that need to be made by manufacturers and the AEC industry to ensure joint systems meet the prescribed fire ratings.
For more than a decade, researchers and healthcare professionals have been fighting an uphill battle against healthcare associated infections (HAIs). One of the critical lines of defense is something your mother taught you: Wash your hands. But, the research shows hand hygiene isn't 100%, especially in terms of healthcare worker compliance. A growing body of research has revealed that surfaces in hospitals and other healthcare facilities are hotbeds of contamination. This leads us to conclude that R&D into safeguarding these surfaces may be the next battleground.
