Fundamentals of Acoustical Panel Production (G&S Acoustics)
GSAIACEU04

1 LU Hour – HSW

This course combines a tour of G&S Acoustics’ manufacturing plant in St. Louis, Missouri and a presentation to gain a better understanding of the components and materials used in the manufacturing of acoustical panels. Participants will review various core materials and how each changes the acoustic environment. The course also covers different fabric, finishes, and mounting for acoustical panels to the walls and ceilings.


Architectural Acoustics for Today’s Buildings (G&S Acoustics)
GSAIACEU01

1 LU Hour – HSW

To learn to control sound in buildings, this course provides a refresher on the basic science of acoustics and how sound interacts with surroundings. Attendees will explore various architectural solutions, the technology behind them and how they are successfully integrated into buildings to reduce noise.


Clipso-AIA Class-2019Performance + Versatility = Great Design (Clipso)
CLIPSO-0219

1 LU Hour – HSW

This course will use technological to present a fun and educational seminar about the advantages of “stretch” ceiling and wall coverings and how they can improve the built environment with regard to Health, Safety and Welfare. In the course, we will address how performance attributes plus product versatility can equal great design! We will dive into the benefits stretch coverings deliver such as acoustical control, illumination, ecofriendliness, custom shapes, and custom print, among others.


Acoustical Performance & Applications of Movable Wall Systems (Kwik-Wall)
J-426

1 LU Hour – HSW

KWIK-WALL’s AIA/CES program has been developed to offer advanced education for the architectural community in the practical application of Operable Wall Systems. You will learn everything from types of wall systems available today, to their configurations, construction, finish options and accessories. The program also provides you with a review of the terminology used in the testing and specifying of Operable Wall Systems.


Designing & Specifying Motorized Shade System
GSAIACEU03

1 LU Hour – HSW

Shades can be a multifunctional item that can help: control glare, reduce inside temperature, provide a degree of daytime privacy and maintain a view outside, but it is important to identify the key goals when specifying.
Essential factors when specifying motorized shades include: making proper motor selection, electrical layout, mounting conditions and fabric selection. This course will explain the differences between the available motorized systems. Emphasis will be placed on the advantages of each system in relation to the scope of the project.


Stage Curtains: Designing a Theatre
GSAIACEU02

1 LU Hour – HSW

Stage Curtains, or Soft Goods as they are also known are an important factor to bridging the real from the unreal. They complete the transition from the physical structure of the building to the world created on the stage. They must compliment the interior of the facility, as well as help create an illusion upon the stage. They accomplish this primarily by functioning as masking for areas that are not meant to be seen by the audience. There are many types of draperies that perform similar but specific tasks. Just as there are many types of curtains, each one can go by a multitude of names. To learn how to design a stage with curtains, this course provides basic understanding of stage curtain types. From there, participants will learn various solutions to design & establish the correct line sets, the science behind them and how to select the proper materials. Solutions offered cover retrofits and new construction options for stages as well as other venues. The course uses visuals and hand materials to engage participants.


Architectural Applications for Stretch Membrane Acoustic Systems (New Mat)
AIACES101NUSA

1.5 LU Hour – HSW

Stretched membrane acoustic systems provide multi-functional solutions with unlimited applications. This course begins by examining the major aspects of architectural acoustics with detailed information on the quality and containment of sound, noise control, and acoustics within various environments. Attendees will then discover the many benefits of stretched membrane acoustic systems while reviewing test data, applications and case studies. A comparison of the acoustical performance between stretched membrane systems and other products in the construction industry (e.g. drywall, ACT, stretched fabric, perforated wood, acoustical panels, etc.) is presented, along with a cost comparison.


Principals and Practices of Expansion Control Systems (MM Systems)
EJA1

1 LU Hour – HSW

This course will cover what is an Expansion Joint and where do they occur, are they optional and can I make them go away? The design and selection criteria of expansion joints will be covered along with types of movement – seismic, thermal, lateral shear. The next subject will be service environment such as traffic loads, waterproofing, durability and the Code & Life Safety which is ADA compliance, fire rated, trip hazards plus aesthetic considerations including metal finishes, paint options, color options, faux finishes. The three specific, measurable learning objectives (new skills or knowledge) are trip hazards/ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) requirements, proper selection/movement/seismic considerations and waterproof and load bearing characteristics.
