'More With Less' Seminar Will Share Precast Possibilities, New Precast Technologies: Up to six AIA registered continuing education credits available at 16 locations this fall

Bethlehem, PA | Posted on August 4th, 2011

The "More With Less" program (morewithlesstour.com) will offer up to six AIA-registered continuing education credits at 16 locations nationwide. Three of the programs will center on effectively evaluating, designing and specifying carbon fiber grid reinforced precast enclosure systems.

Dates, venues and locations include:

Sept. 20: Boston, MA; John Hancock Hotel & Conference Center
Sept. 22: Philadelphia, PA; Center for Architecture of AIA
Sept. 27: Washington D.C.; The American Institute of Architects
Sept. 29: Charlotte, NC; The eXtravaganza Depot
Oct. 4: Atlanta, GA; Georgia Tech Global Learning Center
Oct. 6: New York, NY; Residence Inn by Marriott Manhattan/Times Square
Oct. 11: Miami, FL; Newman Alumni Center at University of Miami
Oct. 13: Dallas, TX; Dallas Center for Architecture
Oct. 19: St. Louis, MO; The Charles F. Knight Executive Education & Conference Center
Oct. 21: Kansas City, MO; AIA Kansas City
Oct. 26: Chicago, IL; University of Chicago
Oct. 28: Minneapolis, MN; Campus Club - University of Minnesota
Nov. 1: Houston, TX; University of Houston
Nov. 3: Denver, CO; PPA Event Center
Nov. 8: Seattle, WA; Bell Harbor Conference Center
Nov. 10: San Francisco, CA; University of California Berkeley

The presentations will explain use of new precast reinforcing materials, mix designs, rigid insulation profiles, nanotechnology-enabled coatings and unitized construction. Attendees will learn how to design low-CO2e exterior wall systems that control moisture and improve energy efficiency and sustainability. Programs presented by veteran building industry professionals will include:

Precast Enclosure Possibilities - Identifies common misperceptions about precast enclosures through the study of precast forming options, technologies and designs that reduce precast weight to attain sustainable design goals.

Sustainable Design and Precast Enclosure Systems - Shares how LEED and IgCC apply to precast enclosures, explores the best insulation for precast wall assemblies and presents how precast affects heat flow and can mitigate moisture flow in wall design.

Precast Aesthetics: Managing cost and quality - Compares the impact of panel sizes to erection costs and other project cost drivers. It also evaluates how reduced weight and precast finishes influence project costs.

Introduction to CarbonCast Enclosure Systems - Imparts key characteristics of four carbon fiber grid-reinforced precast concrete enclosure systems compared to alternate systems.

Designing with CarbonCast Enclosure Systems - Teaches how to configure carbon fiber grid-reinforced enclosures to achieve design and performance objectives and a lower CO2e footprint.

Project Case Studies - Presents a wide variety of projects using carbon fiber grid reinforced enclosures that demonstrate the technology's ability to deliver aesthetic versatility and exceptional performance.

Interested building professionals can register for the seminar at morewithlesstour.com. A $50 registration fee will be refunded upon attendance.
