Steel Framing for Composite Decking (Online Version)
The introduction of composite deck boards transformed the decking industry more than 20 years ago. However, one factor in the deck assembly did not see a change: the framing. Architects and builders specify and install composites that will not twist, splinter, or get eaten by termites, but most frames are still being built with wood. Putting a high-performance deck board on a low-performing foundation doesn't make sense. This article describes the benefits of steel deck framing, how to design, plan, and install steel deck framing.

Fiber Cement Panels as Rain Screens (Online Version)
Moisture intrusion in a wall system can be the cause of building defects, as well as health ailments for the building's occupants, making rainscreens a very important tool in water mitigation. This course will review the cause and effects of moisture intrusion and the forces that drive rainwater into a building, identify different rainscreen technologies and ASTM testing standards that measure their performance and discuss fiber cement panels and how they can be used as a rainscreen to reduce moisture build-up, rotting interior walls, mold growth and more!

Becoming Sealer Savvy
The Portland Cement Association (PCA) mentions 5 mechanisms that deteriorate concrete: abrasion, alkali silica reaction, freeze/thaw, corrosion of the reinforcing structure, and chemical intrusion. Proper curing and sealing of concrete decelerates all of these mechanisms. As an architect/engineer or contractor, you know that durable and high-performing concrete leads to client satisfaction and lessened liability. For these reasons, becoming knowledgeable about curing and sealing concrete is important. When you add in the evolving EPA regulations on construction product volatile organic compounds (VOCs), becoming sealer savvy is absolutely vital.

Illustrative Guide to Classical Moulding Design for Cabinetry and Furniture
In this learning unit we will highlight the how Classical Moulding Design can be used throughout the home. We will discuss different heights and proportions and offer guidelines for different types of cabinetry in your project. This course also focuses on entablatures, which is a classical term referring to the area consisting of a series of mouldings, usually found above the column and capital. Entablatures can range from very simple to very elaborate. By understanding and identify the anatomy of an entablature, the designer will be able to adapt cabinetry design to fit the clients’ needs. While understanding the concepts is important, this course delves deeper into explaining how you can adapt the concepts to fit your design needs.

Solidly Sustainable
Acrylic solid surface has been valued for its exceptional versatility, durability, and its unique ability to be formed into almost unlimited shapes. Recently it has been recognized as a sustainable, eco-friendly material. We will explain what makes a solid surface product eco-friendly, including recycled content, life cycle assessment and contribution to LEED. We will also discuss the process of thermoforming and fabricating solid surface material. We will evaluate the design potential of the material and provide examples of where this eco-friendly surface can be used. Finally, we will describe how solid surface was used in three case studies, from concept and visualization through design and fabrication.

Quartz Surfacing Material: A Durable, Sustainable and Attractive Surface
Quartz is the most abundant mineral on earth and is extremely strong and durable, making quartz surfacing material a stain and scratch resistant product that exceeds any comparable product today. We will review the history of quartz products and the properties that make them a desirable choice for surfaces. We will examine the composition of quartz surfacing material and how it is made, as well as industry testing and environmental factors. The course will discuss criteria to consider when designing a quartz surface and how to work with a fabricator. Finally, we will identify general fabrication, installation and maintenance considerations that will help you choose a durable, impervious and attractive quartz surface.

Impact Rated Fiberglass Doors for Severe Weather Events (Print Version)
This article was originally published in the December 2012 print and digital editions of Residential Architect magazine.

When the new Florida Building Code became law earlier this year, door manufacturers had already started beefing up their impact-rated models. Their goal: to create, test and certify doors to meet the most stringent wind and impact code requirements in the nation. In vulnerable areas, exterior impact rated doors serve as critical envelope components that help keep a home safe during violent wind events. This article reviews damages of past hurricanes, advances in Florida Building Code, and how impact-rated fiberglass doors can protect a home.

Blower Door Basics
This course will provide learners with an understanding of air leaks and where they are most likely to occur in a home and identify the difference between air leaks into the home, infiltration, and air leaks out of the home, exfiltration. Once learners understand the common air leakage sites, they will then become familiarized with the purpose of a blower door test, and are able to see how it can help find air leaks in the home.

Energy Efficiency Through the Use of Metal Roofing and Wall Systems
Metal roofs and metal-framed structures are valued for their strength, durability, aesthetics, reflectivity, and sustainability, but when fully integrated as a system - a metal building envelope with phase change material - allows maximum energy efficiency. Phase change materials (PCM) increase the thermal mass of the building envelope helping to maximize energy efficiency. This article discusses how phase change materials work with metal envelopes, provides examples of efficiency improvements and explains common questions related to integrating phase change materials into a project.
