Hands Get Wet: Restroom Design with the End in Mind

In this one hour course, the design professional will consider hand drying strategies used in various types of restrooms including schools, restaurants, stadiums and more. We will assess multiple strategies, including electric hand dryers and the use of paper towels, and compare the life-cycle costs associated with each strategy under different usage scenarios. We conclude with an examination of the environmental and human benefits from the use of high performance hand dryers, including energy use, waste reduction, and acoustics.

Don’t Miss The Mark: Subfloor Construction Adhesives With Podium/Wrap Construction

In this course we examine the differences between construction adhesives based on their core chemical makeup. We will compare and contrast VOC regulations and restrictions for indoor air versus those for outdoor air. We will also discuss the challenge for specifying adhesives posed by LEED v4 design restrictions. The presentation will compare the most commonly referenced subfloor adhesive performance specifications, identify their similarities and differences, and point out how lab conditions can differ from “real world” field conditions.
