Challenges to Air Flow Containment in Critical Facilities: Healthcare and Data Center Focus

Challenges to Air Flow Containment in Critical Facilities

Description: During a building fire, flames and smoke travel through gaps created by penetrations and joints on floor and wall assemblies. Passive fire protection systems help restore the integrity of these assemblies to allow time for safe egress and to reduce the risk of facility damage. But is there a connection between the systems used and a building's overall performance? Could these passive fire protection systems help reduce the spread of airborne disease in healthcare buildings, or impact cooling costs in a data center? What do owners and designers need to know to address these issues? This presentation will address these questions. 

This course is approved through Bicsi for one continuing education unit.

Post-Installed Reinforcing Bar Design: Anchor or Reinforcement?

Please enter alternative text here (optional)

Description: The use of reinforcing bars post-installed with an adhesive system is a common design and construction application. Recent revisions to the ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria for Post-Installed Adhesive Anchors in Concrete Elements (AC308) have made it possible for an adhesive system to be approved for post-installing reinforcing bars per the development and splice provisions of the American Concrete Institute Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318). Therefore, adhesive systems qualified per the provisions of AC308 can now be used with post-installed reinforcing bars designed and installed per the anchoring-to-concrete provisions of ACI 318/CSA A23.3, and per the development and splice provisions of ACI 318/CSA A23.3. This presentation will explain the differences between post-installed reinforcing bars designed per CSA A23.3-14 anchoring-to-concrete provisions and per CSA A23.3-14 development and splice provisions.

This course is accredited through NCSEA Diamond Review for 1.0 hour of continuing education credit.

Helping Ensure the Architect's Design Intent Transitions from the Architectural Details to the Concrete Deck

Please enter alternative text here (optional)

Description: Multiple jobsite conditions can reduce the performance of interior walls and create problems for designers, owners, and building occupants. Learn what architects can do to overcome these challenges and help ensure their design intent transitions from the architectural plans to the concrete slab. This presentation will focus on metal stud walls on flat deck concrete.

This course is approved through AIA for 1.0 LU l HSW.
