“The End of LEED 2009 – How can LEEDv4 Optimize Your Building Strategy?”
Big changes are coming to the green building industry this fall with the end of LEED 2009 – what do you need to know about LEEDv4 to make the best decisions for your company? Once LEED v2009 registration closes in October 2016, it will be essential to understand the best way to utilize your time and resources in achieving green building certifications. Even though projects cannot be registered to LEED 2009 after October, there will still be many LEED 2009 projects that will be in progress until 2021. Product manufactures and project teams will need to manage requirements of both standards. This presentation will provide you with the tools to make the right decisions for your organization’s sustainable building strategy, in 2016 and beyond.

“The Changing Field of Green: A Clear View and Plan to Prepare!”
The Green Building movement has reached a maturity after 20 years. As it ages, it is adapting to different conditions and markets. How can the AEC community prepare? Do we even know what is next? Join a veteran in the movement to hear thoughts on where we are going, what we are doing and how we all can get there together.

“Where it All Comes Together”
The consequences of façade failures compromise the performance and safety of building and are, therefore, critical issues for building owners. Often these failure are a result of air infiltration and water penetration. The program focuses on the integration of different systems within the building envelope including an open discussion forum on constructability concerns and features mock up demonstrations of field encountered issues and solutions.

  • Hands-on session at the Finishing Trades Institute
  • Virtual Welding Showcase and Competition among attendees

The day also includes a vendor exhibit and many opportunities to network with your peers in architecture, engineering and construction.

“May” Meeting – The Continuing Convergence of Building Science and LEED

Wall system choices influence the durability, health, safety, comfort and efficiency of buildings. The ever-increasing challenges presented by increased design and material complexity, increased airtightness and insulation values will be outlined. This session will help to identify the importance of key weather barrier, air barrier and thermal barrier details to optimize performance of your buildings.
Learning Objectives:
• Understanding the total thermal effectiveness of wall systems and how/where to safely increase it.
• Identify construction detail options for the installation of different exterior insulation strategies.
• Meeting the air tightness objectives of codes and energy programs.
• The importance of weather barriers and comprehensive details to maintain a durable structure.

This program is approved for 1 AIA/CES HSW contact hour.
