APG University Online

Presented by Echelon Masonry

 

Join us bi-weekly for AIA-accredited webinars on modern solutions to the most pressing challenges in architecture, presented by experts from across the industry. From specification support to site planning to strategies to optimize the health and wellness of your occupants and beyond, APG U sessions offer up knowledge you need to succeed – and the LU and HSW credits you need to stay current.

 

Check out the current block of webinars below:

 

April 14th, 1:00pm ET: Multi-Family and Light Commercial Design and Construction: An Architects’ Perspective (1 LU/ HSW)

  • Concrete Masonry is an effective solution for the ever-changing design environment. Masonry buildings offer a wealth of health and safety benefits to the occupants, including mitigating moisture (which can lead to mold growth and degraded air quality), resiliency and the overall energy performance of the built environment. Moreover, for multi-family and light commercial, masonry stands the test of time and offers the Architect an array of aesthetic possibilities as they work to create an experience for the end user and exceed their client’s expectations. 


    In this session, notable architects will walk through a deep dive of multi-family and light commercial design and construction and discuss the use of concrete masonry products as well as best practices and criteria used by architects in selecting builder products and materials that streamline the build process and maximize efficiencies for multi-family and light commercial construction.

May 12th, 1:00pm ET: Top 10 Construction Litigation Issues (1 LU / HSW)​

  • Disputes can arise at any stage of the construction process, from commitments at a project’s start to fundamental disputes over performance after its completion. This session will explore the most common issues that are alleged in construction defect cases. The presentation will guide the attendees through construction basics from the roof to the foundation. The most common defects in each area will be discussed, along with building code requirements, accepted industry standards, consequences and/or damages and repair recommendations. 


    In this session, Forensic Engineer Derek Hodgin, from Construction Science & Engineering Inc, will walk through a deep-dive review of correctly interpreting prescriptive and performance-based building code requirements and industry standards for the 10 most common construction defects, discriminately compare as-built conditions with industry standards and building code requirements, and accurately evaluate the adequacy of construction details to determine the need for corrective repairs.

June 9th, 1:00pm ET:  Design and Construction of Concrete Grid Pavements (1 LU / HSW)

  • Concrete grid pavement is widely used across North America for various applications including “green” pathways, parking lots, and basic erosion control. This presentation reviews the various applications for concrete grid pavements and provides important design considerations, product specifications and construction recommendations. Environmental benefits such as reduced runoff and heat island mitigation are also highlighted. The program will conclude with several case studies.
     
    Join experts from Belgard Commercial and Oldcastle APG as participants will learn to identify the appropriate ASTM product standards for concrete grid paving units, learn of the environmental benefits of utilizing concrete grid pavements, and be able to identify the construction sequence for installing concrete grid pavements.
