  • Concrete moisture – often talked about and often blamed for “moisture related issues”. But is it always moisture coming from or through the concrete? There is an often-disregarded trio of factors – dew point, surface temperature, ambient conditions - that if not addressed, can result in substrate surface condensation before, during and even after installation. These natural phenomena can have devastating effects on the integrity of a floorcovering installation. The climate controlled systems in place at a jobsite, what settings they are on for controlling ambient temperature and ambient humidity, whether continuous or non-continuous operation, the efficacy of those climate controlled systems, and air leakage into the building such as open areas for construction traffic, are all important factors in determining if the surface in question is at risk of developing condensation. Problems tend to occur when the substrate’s surface temperature matches the dew point temperature. This is more likely to happen late at night or early morning hours. When a substrate’s surface reaches the dew point temperature, the resulting condensation delivers a surface that is not ready for floorcovering installation. This presentation discusses the key critical factors in identification and avoidance of condensation induced problems for the floorcovering installation.

  • Moisture within roof assemblies, or the concern over such, has recently become a major focus of discussion for the design/build community due to project schedule delays and disruptions to businesses and institutions. Despite the disruption to projects this issue causes, there remains significant misunderstanding across the design build industry regarding product warranties, field moisture tests, and just how long it takes concrete “to dry”. During this presentation, we will discuss common terms associated with concrete that are often misused and misunderstood. Further, the various sources of roof system moisture will be identified with clear recommendations given as to how the specifying professional can proactively address these sources through the construction documents. This course is Introductory.

  • Few aspects of the design process are conducted in silos as disassociated from one another as how many projects approach interior concrete slab specifications and subsequent flooring specification sections. This is not done intentionally, rather it is by-product of lack of coordination, and fundamental misunderstanding, between those involved with the structural elements and those involved with the aesthetic and finishing elements. During this presentation, we will discuss sustainability and what it means; drawing the attendee into a clear discussion of how sustainability relates to LEED, Lean Construction, Green Building, and process improvement. Inconsistencies with current specification processes related to concrete moisture as compared to the tenets of sustainability will be exposed, with clear recommendations given as to how the specifying professional can resolve those disconnects.

  • In the macro critical path of project delivery, installation of final floor finishes is one of the last items to occur prior to substantial completion. However, due to changes in adhesive formulations driven by concerns over indoor environmental quality, most project 09 flooring specifications require moisture testing before flooring can be installed on concrete slabs. Should/when those moisture tests fail, the project faces burdensome time delays, unexpected costs, or both. During this presentation, we will: (1) briefly discuss the history of concrete moisture and flooring; (2) examine in depth several misconceptions embedded within the AEC associated with field moisture testing and project owner and design team liability associated with concrete moisture induced flooring failure; and (3) we will give clear recommendations as to how the specifying professional can eliminate concrete moisture as a project delivery issue while simultaneously protecting the project owner and design team from project delivery delays/cost overruns and future failed flooring.

  • Finish elements such as the floorcovering system have a great impact on the final aesthetics of a structure. Floorcovering specification sections often do not address the compatibility of the floorcovering system with the type of application and intended service use. This is not done intentionally, rather it is an innate result of a misunderstanding of sufficient compatibilities of the various types of floorcovering systems within their installed environments. During this presentation, we will discuss published floorcovering systems installation standards and specifications that will aid the attendee in strengthening their 09 Sections to avoid these incompatibilities. In addition, identification and categorization of various floorcovering system failures, immediate and latent, will be presented, and how to properly prevent these failures from occurring during the design process for a successful floorcovering system installation.
