Innovations in Residential Construction Using Advanced Gypsum Products

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.

Metal Roofing with the Appearance of Traditional Materials

With its long-term durability, enduring appearance, and strong return on investment over the longer term, metal roofing has become a huge segment of the U.S. roofing industry—more than $4 billion sold annually, and forecasted to be more than $7 billion by 2024. Many architects envision standing seam or corrugated profiles as their only metal roofing options, yet designs exist that effectively mimic the appearance of traditional roofing materials such as clay tile, slate, or wood shake. This course will look at some of the current aesthetic options, performance characteristics, and green building properties of metal roofing designs, particular those that replicate the appearance of traditional roofing mat

Achieving Healthy, Comfortable, Interior Environments Through Sustainable Performance Design

Commercial and institutional building construction widely relies on the use of interior building products, including those made with gypsum, in a multitude of ways. They can be used with corner treatments to create interior spaces that are dramatic or sublime. They provide fire-resistance as part of rated interior and exterior wall assemblies. They are used in exterior walls in combination with insulation to meet a variety of energy demands. Moisture resistant products are used on exteriors and damp areas to address water vapor issues. In recent times, the rise of green building programs such as LEED®, the WELL Building Standard, and the Living Building Challenge, has also led to some manufacturers to create high performance interior products that have the ability to address a variety of indoor environmental quality concerns as well. These most recent advancements can help address issues of indoor air quality, enhanced sound control and better durability in commercial buildings, among other beneficial traits. This course provides an overview of indoor environmental health, safety, and welfare considerations in sustainable buildings while assessing interior products like high performance gypsum and insulation products that are currently available to meet those needs for walls and ceilings. As such, this course provides a basis for follow-on courses that are available to address, in more detail, some of these specific design and construction issues
