Short Description:
This course looks at two of the more complicated components of basement construction including problems with how many basements are built today and how to build them better with proper capillary, air, water, and thermal control layers. Finishing an existing basement is even more challenging, and we’ve all seen examples of how badly it can fail. This course will provide a best practice solution to finishing existing spaces, so they are as durable and efficient as possible.

Short Description:
Mandated requirements for ADA compliancy and demand from an aging population, is creating a growing need for barrier-free bathrooms. Today's ADA compliant bathroom no longer has to be utilitarian or "institutional" in its design. Design options are enhanced through the use of tile and innovative construction methods. The result is beautiful bathrooms that also adhere to ADA standards for accessible design. This course examines ways in which barrier-free environments can be customized to include various design elements while remaining ADA compliant. This course also addresses why bonded waterproofing technology lends itself to the construction requirements of barrier-free design.

Short Description:
For high-performance, net zero energy homes, it is critical to get the building enclosure and mechanical systems right. While renewable energy can be added or acquired later, it is not as easy to change the overall efficiency of the building enclosure or HVAC system. It is critical to identify cost-effective approaches to get the loads low and efficiencies high. The last segment of this session will explore specific design and technologies strategies that I would select for a Net Zero energy Home today. It all comes down to systems optimization—not spending too much in one area or too little in another—with the goal of keeping the cost of a renewable energy system more accessible and affordable today and in the future.
