Canadian Building Products Seminars:

Health & Wellness in the Built Environment

Des Moines, IA – January 23, 2018

4 AIA / 2 GBCI

Program Agenda


Registration and Breakfast




Presentation 1

Architectural Daylighting, Glare Control, And Total Envelope Performance (AIA/CES/HSW accredited )

Advanced Glazings




Presentation 2

Understanding Stone Wool (Mineral Wool) in Interior and Exterior Applications - Solutions for Thermal, Fire, and Sound Control

1 AIA/CES Learning Unit (HSW and SD), 1 GBCI CE Hour 


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.




Presentation 3

A Better Way to Build

(under review for AIA and GBCI credit)

MGO Systems

Engineered Wall Systems are relatively new to the design and construction fields, but more owners, builders, and design professionals are finding that they best fulfill the demand for cost-effective, speedy, energy-efficient, sustainable, and nearly trouble-free structures for a very wide variety of building types and uses.  Imagine building a 2-story, 40,000 s.f. school in 120 calendar days from groundbreaking to occupancy, and then having it survive Hurricane Irma with just a few broken windows!

Presentation 4

Architectual Iniaitives to Reduce the Carbon Footprint of Concrete

Carbon Cure

AIA #40107569; course #CCT000000001. Participants will receive 1 AIA-HSW learning unit

Cement is the main component in concrete, and its production represents about 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. This course addresses the complexity and scale of greenhouse gas emissions produced by the concrete industry and the role architects can play to reduce these emissions. The course will investigate:

  • Initiatives that have been employed by the cement and concrete industries to lower their environmental impact
  • Market drivers that address materials’ environmental footprint such as LEED and the Living Building Challenge
  • Impact measurement tools such as Environmental Product Declarations
  • Exploring emerging innovations to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete                 




Presentation 5
