AIA Credit: (1) Learning Unit – Health, Safety, and Welfare (Provider – Solatube International, Inc.)

GBCI Credit: (1) Learning Unit – Credential Maintenance Program

Topics discussed include:

  1. Learn about the latest advanced optical daylighting technology and the product category Tubular Daylighting Device (TDD) which makes daylighting a space as easy as applying traditional lighting equipment.
  2. After a brief overview of typical daylighting strategies and key energy and human performance based reasons for daylighting today’s buildings, the audience is introduced to the three technology zones that are common to every TDD.

At the end of the course commercially available component technologies are compared and contrasted, allowing the designer to make informed decisions when choosing the appropriate TDD technology for their application.

GBCI Credit: (1) Learning Unit – Credential Maintenance Program

Topics discussed include:

  1. Demonstrate the available daylighting applications and discuss how optical daylighting strategies, in particular, exceed the minimum LEED requirements for daylighting.
  2. Review how daylight has contributed to projects that have reached their sustainable design goals, including achievement of LEED status.

Concludes with a discussion regarding the importance of daylighting in zero energy buildings.

AIA Credit: (1) Learning Unit – Health, Safety, Welfare and Sustainable Design (Provider – McKeon Door Company)

Topics discussed include:

  1. Understand the regulatory standards governing the use and application of opening
  2. Differentiate between fire walls and fire
  3. By examining numerous case studies participants will learn the fundamental code requirements that drive the placement of fire walls and fire barriers, their openings and opening

Through slides, discussion and case studies, participants will see the direct correlation between Life Safety, product application and open design.
