This course has been designed to acquaint the viewer with the many aspects of Fire and Life Safety Code Requirements and how those Code Requirements affect egress and building design.
The EPIC Metals Course covers the use of Architecturally aesthetic design solutions for open structure projects ranging from simple canopies to huge airport concourses. EPIC can provide over 70 different profiles of Acoustic and Non-Acoustic Roof and Floor deck, all intended to provide a finished Architectural ceiling while functioning as a major Structural component of the project. Many types of projects—schools, gymnasiums, Natatoriums, canopies, transportation facilities, conference centers, wellness facilities, multi-tenant buildings, perforated architectural screening, and more are addressed.
Learn about the latest trend in interior design: Biophilic Design, which is the incorporation of natural elements using design techniques to improve the environment, employee well-being and productivity. This presentation is more than just theory, it offers case studies and data that back up this type of design and shows how retail, commercial, school, health and hospital buildings and employees can benefit substantially by incorporating the principles of biophilic design. From water features, daylighting, acoustic treatments, sounds and natural imagery to analogs of nature and elevated visual planes, the techniques and materials to invoke them are available for the next generation of design.
This session will review the impact COVID-19 will have on building design and systems as it relates to acoustics, technology, and lighting design. Acoustically, the workplace will require redesigning. The current high-density hoteling of workers will not be accepted in the future due to social distancing. This will impact office acoustics as well as noise levels within restaurants.Over the last 3 months, the A/E industry has found that most of us can work from a laptop and if we have a high-speed connection, can work from home. We have been remotely doing that at client meetings and job sites for years. It is the actual production work that is more efficient on larger and multiple monitors that will create the challenge.
Participants will describe impact of background noise on speech and privacy Participants will discuss acoustical importance of absorptive materials Participants will describe impact of wall and ceiling construction on acoustics Participants will list requirements for environmental noise, background noise, speech privacy and sound isolation
Southeast Concrete Masonry Association (SCMA) has created a Concrete Masonry Academy designed to provide monthly education webinars on a variety of topics for all industry professionals at no cost.The SCMA will continue to focus on the design and construction of Concrete Masonry buildings. The instructors will include member experts along with other industry presenters. Each webinar will offer either AIA-CES Learning Units and Professional Development Hours.
