  • A comprehensive lighting plan is critical to the success of any residential design project. Proper lighting is effective and efficient and contributes to the comfort and functionality of the home. This course explores lighting concepts, sources, and controls. It discusses using layers of light to achieve design goals, and how to incorporate energy efficiency into lighting designs.

  • Electrical systems that deliver access to permanent power and enable device connectivity are critical components of the design and operation of high performance buildings. Today’s mobile technology means people can connect and move freely between the indoors and outdoors, and integrate their social and work lives, anytime, anywhere. This course examines permanent outdoor power delivery offerings , including charging stations and in ground power boxes, that support the growing demand for connectivity and data and audio visual communications in outdoor spaces and help to create an outdoor environment that promotes longer stays, stimulates creativity, and increases productivity.

  • Today’s buildings are evolving from independently-functioning structures to intelligent buildings that interact with occupants and surrounding buildings. This trend has impacted the design, operation, and maintenance of data centers around the globe due to the increased demand of data and digital communication, and has resulted in more high-performance data centers. This presentation addresses the specific needs of data centers and presents high-performance design solutions that support sustainable design.

  • The expectation for better products, better systems, and better buildings has created demand for reliable disclosure methods for the health and environmental impacts of building materials. This course will explore the product transparency movement in terms of environmental product declarations, in particular the product environmental profile (PEP). An overview of how a PEP is created, the basic terms used in a PEP, and a part-by-part review of a sample PEP are presented.

  • Unprotected openings resulting from the installation of electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems represent a breach of the fire resistive floor or wall assemblies. This course examines firestop systems used for maintaining or regaining the fire resistance rating of a fire separation, and includes discussions on testing standards, fire classified floor boxes, poke-thru devices, and through-wall penetration systems.

  • Electrical devices impact the health, safety, and welfare of building occupants, so proper specification is critical. This courses looks at electrical devices and the safety issues associated with them. The course includes discussions on the features of duplex receptacles, hospital grade receptacles, GFCIs and other electrical devices, and also discusses updated UL requirements and NEC codes.

  • Energy codes are appearing on the Federal, State, and Local level in an effort to reduce energy consumption, save consumers money, and reduce CO2 emissions. Whether new or existing, energy codes play an important role in the buildings we design, build, and ultimately live, work and play. This course examines the lighting requirements and provisions of the ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010 and the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code®, and identifies plug and lighting control strategies for energy efficiency.

  • Expansion or modification of electrical cabling is rarely considered yet occurs during the lifetime of most buildings. Expansion of in-wall cabling requires additional work and trades, but cable trays facilitate removal and addition of cabling. This course reviews of two types of cable tray—ladder tray and wire mesh tray—their components, characteristics and applications, and code related installation information.
