  • Description: Bamboo, with its superior strength, lightweight, ease of use, and ability to be regrown quickly, has been utilized as a construction material in its natural state for many centuries. More recently, it has been combined with other elements to create improved materials such as bamboo fiber composite decking and fencing. This course, illustrated with harsh climate installations from around the world, explains this advancement, the products now available, and how to certify, specify, install, and maintain them.

  • Aluminum as a building material has been in use for almost 90 years and in that time has proved to be safe, reliable, and extremely durable. Because the energy and resources required to produce it have been radically reduced recently, it is now regarded as one of the most sustainable building materials available. This course explores how the many benefits of aluminum can be incorporated into the design of attractive, strong, extremely durable, and corrosion-resistant aluminum fences and railings; how these products can be finished, specified, and installed; and the codes and standards that inform and govern their use.

  • Outdoor decks are commonly desired by homeowners and commercial property owners for both new and existing properties. Wood has long been the structural choice for outdoor deck materials. However, wood has disadvantages that can be mitigated with steel deck framing structural construction. In this course, we will discover that light-gauge steel (LGS) is lighter in weight than structural wood, is less susceptible to deterioration due to the elements and pests, requires less maintenance over time, is a sustainable material, and offers unparalleled safety features for dead loads, live loads, and environmental loads such as snow, earthquakes, and wind. Steel deck framing is quick to erect and provides for longer spans than wood of similar cross-sectional size. Structural materials can be easily lifted, and waste is reduced.
