About InsulTech System™

The patented InsulTech™ Insulated Concrete Masonry System (ICMS) is a complete thermally-broken, continuous-insulated system that delivers unmatched masonry thermal performance rated at R-16.2 – far exceeding today’s most stringent code requirements. The InsulTech Masonry System is certified by the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation, #FL28455, and is comprised of five crucial components in a single, preassembled 12 ¼” unit that dramatically improves installation efficiency: structural CMU, EPS insulation, air barrier, drainage plane, and veneer face. With both the structural block and exterior veneer available in both standard finishes and Trenwyth® architectural finishes, InsulTech outperforms other insulated CMU block systems in both thermal performance and architectural flexibility. When your project calls for the ultimate in masonry thermal performance, look no further than InsulTech.

IECC Energy Review and Masonry Compliance Options (LU/HSW)

CEU Credits: 1 LU | HSW

The International Energy Construction Code is leading the charge for increasingly stringent energy code requirements across the nation, requiring ongoing adaptation of design strategies. 

This course reviews exterior envelope R-Value requirements and masonry wall compliance options in regards to the latest IECC code as well as several competitive building materials. We will review evolving exterior wall R-value requirements, explore the definition and impact of continuous insulation (CI), and present design opportunities for innovative wall systems that meet and exceed IECC performance standards.

After completing this course, attendees will be able to: 
Understand IECC requirements for exterior walls. 
Describe the principles behind continuous insulation (CI).
Develop effective specifications that incorporate continuous insulation into masonry systems. 
Understand the benefits and limitations of “new” & “old” wall systems.
Effectively apply this knowledge to future projects in order to meet increasingly aggressive energy performance goals.
 
This course is applicable to all masonry product lines, especially for InsulTech and EnduraMax

Masonry and Leed v4.1 (LU/HSW)

CEU Credits: 1 LU 

Sustainable design and green building are ever-evolving, with the latest version, LEED v4.1 introduced in 2019. 

This course will explore the latest modifications to the LEED standard, with a particular emphasis on masonry compliance and contribution. Developed by LEED expert Christine A. Subasic, P.E., LEED A.P., the course will introduce attendees to sustainable design and provide an overview of the LEED Rating System, and its credit categories, with a particular emphasis on Materials and Resources, as well as covering criteria and considerations used in selecting masonry products for LEED projects.

After completing this course, attendees will be able to: 
Understand the changes in the Materials and Resources credit category in LEED v4. 
Identify elements of sustainable design that are not always part of green building rating systems. 
Provide an overview of the LEED v4.1 BD+C New Construction Rating System. 
Explain sustainable design strategies and LEED strategies that utilize masonry.
 
This course is applicable to all masonry products.

Designing with Masonry for a Healthier, Safer Building Environment (LU/HSW)

CEU Credits: 1 LU | HSW

Masonry delivers a variety of benefits to occupants and designers alike including being highly environmentally-friendly due to its durability and reduced embodied energy compared to other structural building materials. 

This course will discuss ASTM specification classifications, as well as the various texture, pattern and color variations offered by masonry. Additionally, the course will review the environmental contributions that masonry offers the architect including the prevention of moisture and mold in construction projects and protentional LEED credits.

After completing this course, attendees will be able to: 
Identify the performance characteristics of the various types of architectural masonry. 
Understand different ASTM Classifications and how these affect the architect's specification of concrete masonry. 
Discuss the proper detailing of concrete masonry to prevent moisture intrusion. 
Explain the LEED rating system and how masonry plays a part in achieving LEED certification.
 
This course is applicable to all masonry product lines.
