The first hour is on insulated concrete forms for commercial construction.  Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) combine the strength and durability of reinforced concrete with the versatility and energy efficiency of rigid insulation. With a lower first cost than wood and steel construction, ICFs improves occupant safety, fire resistance and noise transmission for office, hospital, school and retail buildings, among others. ICFs are also remarkably cost effective as the thermal properties of ICFs can offer building owners significant energy savings over the long term. The presentation will also provide guidance on how to minimize the cost of ICF construction to take full advantage of the range of benefits, resulting in investments that are secure and generate long-term value.  This course offers 1 AIA HSW credit.  


The second hour is on Self-Consolidating Concrete.  More information should be posted soon.  This presentation will be submitted to AIA for AIA HSW credit.
