In-Person and Webinar Preview - Innovations in Residential Construction Using Advanced Gypsum Products

Innovations in Residential Construction Using Advanced Gypsum Products (BSS077_1)

Course Description:

The majority of homes today use gypsum boards, panels, and compounds in a multitude of ways. While gypsum has a long history of use in American construction, changes in building codes and design, programs such as the USGBC LEED, and construction practices have generated a need for a suite of specialized solutions. Participants who complete this course will be able to identify the environmental human and health considerations related to the selection of gypsum solutions, the types of gypsum boards available today and where they are intended for use, how the level of gypsum finishing is evaluated and communicated, as well as identify emerging IEQ technologies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the history of gypsum as a natural material and how it has become so widely used in residential construction.
  • Identify the manufacturing process of both natural and synthetic gypsum products and the sustainability and green attributes of manufacturing each.
  • Investigate the full range of high performing, innovative gypsum products and the different finish levels that can all help contribute to green building design.
  • Assess the functional performance of gypsum products as they contribute to green and sustainable design in any residential building or project
