PROGRAM LINEUP

The Role of Masonry in Sustainable Design and LEED: 1 AIA/PDH
Christine A. Subasic, P.E., LEED AP
Consulting Architectural Engineer

9:00am

The seminar, "The Role of Masonry in Sustainable Design and LEED, will provide attendees with an overview of the LEED v4/v4.1 Rating System and changes from the LEED 2009 Rating System. The LEED credit categories will be covered, with emphasis on the Materials and Resources credits and others related to masonry.  This seminar will identify how masonry products can contribute to sustainable design and LEED.   

Thermal Performance of Concrete Masonry Wall Systems: 1 AIA
Nick Carparelli, LEED Green assoc. 
Executive Director, New York State Concrete Masonry Association 

10:00am

This presentation is based on the National Concrete Masonry Association’s (NCMA) Thermal Catalog of Concrete Masonry Assemblies. The contributions of concrete masonry’s thermal mass to energy efficient structures will be highlighted. The presentation will also introduce several strategies for insulating both single and multi-wythe construction. In addition, attendees will receive an overview of various methods of compliance for masonry assemblies with respect to the 2020 New York State Energy Conservation Code.

Using the Structural Design Manual for Hi-R and HI-R H pre insulated concrete masonry units: 1 AIA
David Biggs, P.E., S.E. 
Consulting Engineer  

11:00am

With considerations about energy and sustainability, many architects are selecting pre-insulated concrete masonry units (CMU) for their projects. However, the structural design of these systems can present challenges whenever the vertical reinforcement is not symmetrical in the wall.  This presentation will identify some of the pre-insulated systems currently available, provide an overview of thermal characteristics, and address the structural aspects that designers must consider.  The emphasis will be on the design single-wythe pre-insulated CMU walls, beams and lintels using a Structural Design Manual as an example.

Study of Initial Cost of Construction - Multi-Residential Structures: 1 AIA/PDH
Walter G.M Schneider III, PH.D., P.E., CBO, MCP, CFO,
Consulting Engineer

1:00pm

You will be educated on the typical construction types and configurations commonly used in multi-family residential construction and their relative performance initially and over time. An explanation will be made of the construction cost model, which accurately evaluates the relative construction cost of a multi-family building constructed using different construction materials including wood, steel, masonry, precast and ICF. This new study addresses the initial cost of construction a common multi-family residential building based on the 2015 International Building Code designed using the balanced design approach.

 

Panel Discussion - 1 AIA/PDH
Moderator: David Biggs, P.E., S.E.
Biggs Consulting Engineering, PLLC 

2:00pm

Panel will include perspectives from an Engineer(s), Architect and Mason Contractor

The purpose of the panel discussion is to increase masonry knowledge of our attendees  from different perspectives when working on masonry projects. This platform enables a round table discussion and an opportunity to ask questions to a panel of masonry experts they otherwise might not get in front of. We hope with this platform attendees will absorb more masonry information in a positive light and will consider the use of masonry materials in future projects.
