AEC Daily: Extending the Life of the Roofing Assembly

ONGOING

Some roof underlayments can trap moisture, degrade insulation performance, and create excessive condensation accumulation. Breathable, self-adhering roof underlayments enhance the drying capacity of the roofing assembly and therefore improve roofing performance. This course investigates current developments in these easy-to-install, vapor-permeable roof underlayments that mitigate water intrusion, reduce long-term exposure to wetted substrates, and extend the life of the overall structure. The course concludes with several sample installations.

AEC Daily: Extrusion Matters: XPS vs. EPS

ONGOING - FREE - 1 HOUR

Extruded polystyrene (XPS) and expanded polystyrene (EPS) are both types of rigid foam plastic insulation. Their different manufacturing processes produce wide-ranging performance attributes, especially in water absorption and R-value. This course discusses the negative impact of water absorption on R-value and structural integrity, explains why codes and standards are sometimes specific in requiring XPS in applications where prolonged exposure to water occurs, and concludes with a look at best specification practices for accurate bids.

AEC Daily: High-Performance Building Envelope Designs with Insulating Concrete Forms

ONGOING - FREE - 1.5 HOURS

Insulating concrete form (ICF) products use a cost-effective and robust structural material option (reinforced concrete) to turn a building envelope into a high-performing thermal, moisture, and air enclosure with disaster resistance and built-in compliance with energy code requirements. As a result of ICF performance, building owners can complete a whole structure with ICFs and reinforced concrete, including intermediate suspended floors, rooftops, and multistory designs. This courses examines the advancements in ICF technology and discusses the potential contribution of ICFs to supporting improved sustainability and resilience.

AEC Daily: Improve IAQ, Reduce Carbon Emissions, and Save Energy through Performance-Based Ventilation Design

ONGOING - 1.5 HOURS

In many climate zones, the heating and cooling of outside air (OA) is one of the largest energy loads and contributors to building emissions. Traditional commercial HVAC designs based on the Ventilation Rate Procedure (VRP) rely on large volumes of outside air to maintain acceptable indoor air quality, often resulting in oversized HVAC equipment and wasted energy. Adding to this, good indoor air quality is no longer just a matter of meeting code but is now seen as a necessity for business continuity, improved learning outcomes, and employee productivity. In this course, we will examine ASHRAE Standard 62.1, a recognized standard for nonresidential ventilation system design, and its Indoor Air Quality Procedure (IAQP), which allows for the use of air cleaning technology to offset outside air for a more efficient ventilation system design. We will review the requirements and calculations for this procedure, showing the impact on indoor air quality and energy use, and present a number of case studies. We will also show how IAQP used with air cleaning can help achieve LEED® v4 BD+C: New Construction and O+M: Existing Buildings and WELL v2™ certification.
