ABSTRACT DEADLINE - 2018 RCI, Inc. Building Envelope Technology Symposium
Date: April 20, 2018
RCI Mid-Atlantic Chapter Educational Seminar #1
Date: April 12, 2018
Location: 231 W Hampton Pl Capitol Heights, MD 20743
The Mid-Atlantic Chapter RCI educational seminar for April 12, 2018 is quickly approaching. As always it should prove to be a stimulating and informative gathering.
1. UNDERSTANDING STONE WOOL (MINERAL WOOL) IN INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR APPLICATIONS – SOLUTIONS FOR THERMAL, FIRE, AND SOUND CONTROL
Presenter: Jason Howell – Regional Manager, Mid-Atlantic – Commercial Solutions, ROCKWOOL
The net energy savings realized in a properly insulated building are well understood. However, as design professionals strive to maximize thermal resistance, yet reduce mass in the wall assembly, insulation is increasingly being positioned in both the stud wall and the exterior side of the building envelope. This split insulation concept has introduced a number of design issues and concerns; particularly as relates to fire resistance, moisture management, and wall drying rates. This program focuses on the unique properties of stone wool insulation, and suggests how it can improve thermal, fire, water and sound suppression performance in a well detailed wall assembly.
- Define and explain what stone wool insulation is and how it is manufactured.
- Identify the differences between stone wool, glass fiber, and foam insulations.
- Explain the key features and value added benefits of stone wool.
- Discuss the ecologically sustainable aspects of stone wool.
- Illustrate applications for stone wool in commercial buildings and low slope roofing.
- Comment on Code Changes to IBC Chapter 26 and testing standards for NFPA 285.
2. MAKING THE TRANSITION FOR WALL TO ROOF
Presenter: Nicholas A. Piteo, P.E. Senior Project Manager, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger
Transitions between different systems are the key to providing reliable and durable building enclosure systems. However, transitions typically occur at crossroads between different trades and require careful planning and construction to provide reliable, durable, and constructible details necessary for high performance building enclosures. This presentation will explore the requirements for transitions between different building enclosure systems, including project examples to illustrate several transition details.
- Describe code requirements and common expectations for transitions between enclosure systems.
- Identify common conditions that require transition details and discuss transition strategies.
- Understand project coordination necessary to provide reliable, durable, and constructible transition details.
- Review and discuss examples of transition details and their development.
3. PMMA/PMA LIQUID APPLIED ROOFING AND WATERPROOFING
Presenter: Rick Brehm – District Sales Manager, Soprema
- Describe the origins and composition of liquid applied PMMA roofing and waterproofing membranes, specifically in regards to elimination of traditional roofing methods, including use of open flames and asphalt kettles.
- Explain the performance characteristics and applications of liquid membranes, specifically in their use to preserve existing building components.
- Demonstrate speed of application as it pertains to reduced impact on building’s occupants.
- Provide visual examples of liquid applied installations utilized in lieu of traditional waterproofing systems, where failure of traditional systems can lead to moisture infiltration and subsequent failure of numerous building components.
4. BUILDING ENCLOSURE COMMISSIONING
Presenter: David Fyffe, PE, Seal Engineering, Inc.
The building enclosure is a complex system assembled from a variety of components and materials functioning together with a common end goal – keep air, water and moisture out of the building components. Materials and installation practices are constantly changing, creating a number of issues faced during construction, including: material compatibility, transition detailing, and improper material selection among many others.
Despite the goal of engineers, architects, and contractors to design and build functioning building enclosures, moisture and water related issues continues to make up the majority of construction litigation following the completion of newly constructed buildings. The most effective way to ensure a building enclosure performs effectively is to engage a building enclosure designer/consultant throughout the project. Like building enclosure construction, building enclosure consulting is also an evolving industry. The industry is moving toward what is now called Building Enclosure Commissioning.
This presentation will discuss the components that make up the complete building envelope, and highlight our role as designers/consultants within the construction process from beginning to end. It will discuss design considerations, code requirements, standardized testing, and common construction issues for each building enclosure component. The intent is to highlight the need for knowledgeable professionals in the design and construction of the building enclosure and how commissioning can aid in formalizing the process.
