  3. 3. In Between: Designing Joints Within Façades Minjung Maing, PE, LEED® AP – Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc., Los Angeles, CA How façade elements will meet with the adjoining materials, assemblies, and systems should be considered early in the design phase. Left to the end stages, the interfaces of building systems create abrupt conditions at terminations, transitions, and corners. This can produce building covers which fail to address issues of thermal performance or weather protection, including air infiltration, water penetration, fire resistance, and also the plumbing systems of the building. Although there are general guidelines for designing smaller joints such as sealant joint performance parameters, wider joints (such as expansion and seismic joints) are under-represented and create delays and confusion during construction. Using case studies, the presenter will demonstrate how to detail different types of noncon- forming joints that have been redesigned to comply with performance criteria. Minjung Maing has 10 years’ experience with building envelope performance and integration of design, testing, and construction processes. She has been involved in various remedial design and new construction projects, including custom design of curtain walls, windows, roofing, wall cladding systems as precast panels, EIFS, cement plaster, brick and stone veneer, metal panels, and plaza and below-grade waterproofing. Maing holds dual bachelor’s degrees in architecture and engineering from the Univer- sity of Pennsylvania, a master’s degree in civil/structural engineering from Stanford University, and a professional master’s degree in architecture from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Metal Roofing: Platform for Renewable Energy Systems Scott Kriner, LEED® AP – Metal Construction Assoc. and the Metal Initiative, Glenview, IL Mark James – Metal Construction Association, Glenview, IL The presenters will discuss how metal roofing can be used as a platform to integrate energy-saving technologies into a “sandwiched” plenum between old and new roofs. Methods to be discussed will include radi- ant air barriers and natural convective cooling ventilation (ASV). New generation energy-saving technologies will be illustrated, such as phase change materials (PCM) for extreme thermal resistance, renewable solar thermal heating and cooling (water) systems, and solar heat recovery (air) for space and process heating, as well as roof-mounted photovoltaic systems. These materials can be installed separately or collectively to cre- ate a fully integrated and encapsulated thermal-composite roof assembly over an existing roof that is both aesthetically and architecturally pleasing. The presenter will reference research data from the Oak Ridge National Laboratories (ORNL) to demonstrate the benefits for building owners and design professionals. The presentation will close with an overview of financial incentives afforded through the American Recovery and Rein- vestment Act (ARRA). Scott Kriner is the president and founder of Green Metal Consulting Inc. His company is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, California Association of Building Energy Consultants and the Residential Energy Services Network.

Monday, November 8, 2010 Addressing Roof Leaks by Fixing a Wall Problem Steven Bentz, PE, RRC – Facility Engineering Associates, Fairfax, VA Mark Howell – Structural Preservation Systems, Hanover, MD The presenters will outline the key elements of the building envelope of an historic masonry building from the early 1900s. The details used to evaluate the structure’s building envelope and the investigative methods used to identify sources of water infiltration will be highlighted. The speakers will discuss techniques for selecting appropriate repair meth- ods and how to prepare for commonly unforeseen conditions for most building envelope projects. The course’s content is advanced but will be presented in a way meaningful to those new to the field. Steve Bentz is a senior engineer with his firm, specializing in building envelope repair and assessment. Over the past 10 years, he has been involved with more than 100 projects and has performed duties related to in-field investigation; testing and evaluation; preparation of construction document; bidding; and construction administration for roof replacement, façade repair, and historic rehabilitation proj- ects.

Stucco crack-acceptability criteria are published by many industry sources, but no objective, agreed-upon, industry-wide standard exists. The presenter will offer, for discussion, detailed case histories and an overview of published criteria with the goal of reaching an objective, unbiased, industrywide consensus. The information will help designers to accommodate for stucco shrinkage and movement during the design and construction process, and as a reference when evaluating stucco cracks. Jeff Bowlsby is a California-licensed architect, with 25-years’ experience in cement- based wall cladding systems and building enclosure design. His project experiences and ongoing stucco research encompass a wide spectrum of building and construction types. Bowlsby authored Stucco Control Joint Performance Testing, Just Scratching the Surface, which was published in The Construction Specifier in April 2009. He is a voting member of ASTM Committee C11 for cement plaster standards, ASTM C926, and ASTM C1063. Hidden Holes in Balcony Waterproofing Applications Rocco C. Romero, RA – Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc., Seattle, WA Balconies are a standard component of many multistory apartment and condominium buildings. They provide a means to extend the general useable living space to the outdoors. However, inadequately detailed deck-to-wall interfaces and railing post penetrations often cause water intrusion into the tenant spaces of the building and substantial distress to the balcony structure. When designing balcony waterproofing as- semblies, supplemental sheet metal flashing components integrated with both the waterproofing membrane and the weather-resistive barrier of the cladding system should be considered to provide long-term waterproof performance. Several case studies of balcony repair projects will be ref- erenced as the presenters offer assessments of the as-built construction, subsequent water intrusion, resulting distress, and investigation and repair methodologies. Rocco Romero is a registered architect with over 20 years of experience in the forensic investigation of hundreds of building envelope and façade systems. He specializes in investigation, assessment, and repair design for roofing, waterproofing, and cladding systems in both contemporary and vintage structures. Romero provides consulting services to owners, architects, and general contractors related to the design and con- structability of new and retrofit building envelope systems. The Designer’s Dilemma: Modern Performance Expectations and Historic Masonry Wall Systems Niklas W. Vigener, PE, LEED® AP – Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc., Rockville, MD Bradford S. Carpenter, PE, LEED® AP – Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc., Rockville, MD Designers of building rehabilitation projects are often called upon to improve the structural, waterproofing, or thermal performance of wall systems. Such improvements frequently require envelope modifications that must be carefully analyzed to ensure that they are effective and avoid negative consequences on building performance. The presenter will review modern envelope design requirements and provide recommendations for general design considerations and detailing, along with analysis techniques that can be used to assess the viability of rehabilitation options for existing masonry wall systems. NiklasVigener is a senior principal and division head for a national engineering firm specializing in design, investigation, and rehabilitation of structures and building enclosures. He has led many notable building technology and historic preservation projects, including the rehabilitation of Yale University’s Sterling Memorial Library, Columbia University’s Butler Library, and the multi-phase restoration of the NewYork State Capitol Building. Vigener is a lecturer in the Department of Civil Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. Bradford Carpenter is a senior staff engineer in the building technology division of his firm. He is experienced in the investigation and evaluation of building envelopes, including roofing, below-grade waterproofing, and wall systems with a specialty in rehabilitation design. Carpenter’s work includes peer review and development of building enclosure designs, preparation of specifications and construction documents, construction administration, and monitoring. Saving Our Facilities (and the World) Richard L. Cook, Jr., RRC, RRO, RWC, CCS, CCCA, CDT, LEED® AP – ADC Engineering, Hanahan, SC The building envelope’s importance as protection from Mother Nature is made obvious by the significant weather events occurring in the last 20 years. This is further substantiated with the ever-increasing changes and modifications to our building codes and standards. So, how do we save the world? If we consider that approximately one quarter of our facilities are new constructions, then the remaining three quarters (the vast majority) are existing buildings. The single most significant thing we in the construction industry can do to save our world is to maintain our facilities! Maintenance (repair, renovation, restoration) will extend their useful lives while improving their performance characteristics – and that is sustainability for existing facilities. As an industry, we must educate facility managers and owners on maintenance; develop the design and construction methods to maintain existing facilities (especially publicly bid government projects); create alliances and joint ventures that are not product- or system-driven; develop procurement methods to successfully advertise, bid and award maintenance work; and establish standards and procedures for assessing facilities and their needed repairs. Rick Cook has been a member of RCI since 1988 and currently serves as RCI’s first vice president. He has chaired committees and published articles in Interface. He has received outstanding volunteer awards and has developed and taught dozens of courses for RCI. Reception with Light Hors d’oeuvres When Horizontal Meets Vertical Carole Ceja – Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc., Chicago, IL There are many experts in wall detailing. There are many experts in roof detailing. Usually, the critical detail for building watertightness lies at the intersection of the two disciplines. Far too often, the right hand does not know what the left is doing, and trouble does follow. This presenter will discuss common wall and roofing systems and describe the specific challenges of controlling water and air penetration when the two meet. Masonry, glass, wood, and EIFS all suggest a different strategy when they intersect with slate, single-ply, metal, or built-up roof assemblies. Find out what to expect when horizontal meets vertical. Carole Ceja joined the Chicago office of her firm in 2006 after earning her master’s of architecture degree from the University of Illinois - Urbana with a concentration in structural design. Her professional specialization in roofing and waterproofing is often supplemented with curtain wall and masonry wall work and has included inspections of existing buildings, development and analysis of temperature and humidity-monitoring systems, controlled water testing, insurance claim investigations, repair detail design, development of material specifications and construction drawings, and construction observation services. Nonpresenting coauthor: Rob Haddock – Metal Construction Association and the Metal Initiative, Glenview, IL Not Your Grandfather’s Windows: New Glazing and Fenestration Technologies to Meet Expanding Energy- and Peak-Power Reduction Goals R. Christopher Mathis – Mathis Consulting Company, Asheville, NC Demands for energy efficiency and improved building envelope systems have forced a re-evaluation of the importance of fenestration performance. The presenter will review the array of window and glazing systems cur- rently available and summarize their energy ratings, quantify the energy and power implications of broader marketplace adoption, describe newly emerging window and glazing technologies, and quantify the energy-use implications of different fenestration choices. Chris Mathis has served as a scientist at the Owens-Corning FiberglasTechnical Center, was the director of the thermal testing laboratory for the National Association of Home Builders Research Center, and was director of marketing for ArchitecturalTesting, Inc. He was a founding member of the National Fenestration Rating Council. High-Performance Building Enclosures Cause Condensation and Indoor Air-Quality Problems: the Need for Integrated Design and New Inves- tigation Protocols Brian Hubbs, P Eng – RDH Building Engineering, Ltd., Vancouver, BC Multifamily buildings in the lower mainland of British Columbia and the U.S. Pacific Northwest have come under increasing scrutiny due to the high incidence of water ingress and resulting deterioration of exterior wall assemblies. Current trends in architectural, HVAC and building en- closure design often result in increased potential for condensation-related moisture problems. This presenter will discuss these trends and, through a series of case studies, showcase typical problems that can occur. Innovative monitoring and modeling techniques will be presented that offer insight into the multidisciplinary cause of this problem. Recommendations will be provided for integrated architectural and HVAC designs that ac- commodate the more airtight and insulated wall and window assemblies of today’s buildings. Additionally, guidance for occupants and building managers, to help minimize risk of condensation in exterior wall assem- blies, will be offered. Brian Hubbs has 19 years of experience as a consulting engineer focused exclusively on building enclosure issues for North American climate zones. This work has included the design of new building enclosures, forensic investigation, rehabilitation, maintenance, and litigation support for existing buildings. Hubbs has been a key team member with many landmark building science research and policy projects on the West Coast. Nonpresenting coauthors: Graham Finch, MASc, and Robert Orlowski, ASCT – RDH Building Engineering, Ltd., Vancouver, BC, Canada Rapid Building Failure Timothy Mills, PE, LEED® AP – TAM Consultants, Inc., Williamsburg, VA The presenter will provide a case study of how a project team, through a series of design, administration, and construction decisions, worked through disastrous and costly building issues to create a top-quality health club and spa facility. The presenter will describe the original design, changes that were made in the submittal process, the method of the original construction, initial discovery of problems, investigation and repair options and, finally, the repair and construction techniques used to fix the building. The speaker will demonstrate concepts for effective design and construction procedures and of water vapor transmission and condensation in building assemblies. Breakfast, lunch, and breaks will be catered daily. Each registrant will receive a comprehensive proceedings book and CD detailing each presentation. All hotel and travel arrangements are the responsibility of the registrant. Timothy Mills has 27 years of experience with a wide range of public and private projects, including commercial, federal, municipal, educational, institutional, single- and multi-family residential, historical, industrial and manufacturing facilities, laboratory, parking, green buildings, and retire- ment facilities.

Romero, RA – Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc., Seattle, WA Balconies are a standard component of many multistory apartment and condominium buildings. They provide a means to extend the general useable living space to the outdoors. However, inadequately detailed deck-to-wall interfaces and railing post penetrations often cause water intrusion into the tenant spaces of the building and substantial distress to the balcony structure. When designing balcony waterproofing as- semblies, supplemental sheet metal flashing components integrated with both the waterproofing membrane and the weather-resistive barrier of the cladding system should be considered to provide long-term waterproof performance. Several case studies of balcony repair projects will be ref- erenced as the presenters offer assessments of the as-built construction, subsequent water intrusion, resulting distress, and investigation and repair methodologies. Rocco Romero is a registered architect with over 20 years of experience in the forensic investigation of hundreds of building envelope and façade systems.

The Designer’s Dilemma: Modern Performance Expectations and Historic Masonry Wall Systems Niklas W. Vigener, PE, LEED® AP – Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc., Rockville, MD Bradford S. Carpenter, PE, LEED® AP – Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc., Rockville, MD Designers of building rehabilitation projects are often called upon to improve the structural, waterproofing, or thermal performance of wall systems. Such improvements frequently require envelope modifications that must be carefully analyzed to ensure that they are effective and avoid negative consequences on building performance. The presenter will review modern envelope design requirements and provide recommendations for general design considerations and detailing, along with analysis techniques that can be used to assess the viability of rehabilitation options for existing masonry wall systems. NiklasVigener is a senior principal and division head for a national engineering firm specializing in design, investigation, and rehabilitation of structures and building enclosures.

Saving Our Facilities (and the World) Richard L. Cook, Jr., RRC, RRO, RWC, CCS, CCCA, CDT, LEED® AP – ADC Engineering, Hanahan, SC The building envelope’s importance as protection from Mother Nature is made obvious by the significant weather events occurring in the last 20 years. This is further substantiated with the ever-increasing changes and modifications to our building codes and standards. So, how do we save the world? If we consider that approximately one quarter of our facilities are new constructions, then the remaining three quarters (the vast majority) are existing buildings. The single most significant thing we in the construction industry can do to save our world is to maintain our facilities! Maintenance (repair, renovation, restoration) will extend their useful lives while improving their performance characteristics – and that is sustainability for existing facilities. As an industry, we must educate facility managers and owners on maintenance; develop the design and construction methods to maintain existing facilities (especially publicly bid government projects); create alliances and joint ventures that are not product- or system-driven; develop procurement methods to successfully advertise, bid and award maintenance work; and establish standards and procedures for assessing facilities and their needed repairs.

Reception with Light Hors d’oeuvres When Horizontal Meets Vertical Carole Ceja – Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc., Chicago, IL There are many experts in wall detailing. There are many experts in roof detailing. Usually, the critical detail for building watertightness lies at the intersection of the two disciplines. Far too often, the right hand does not know what the left is doing, and trouble does follow. This presenter will discuss common wall and roofing systems and describe the specific challenges of controlling water and air penetration when the two meet. Masonry, glass, wood, and EIFS all suggest a different strategy when they intersect with slate, single-ply, metal, or built-up roof assemblies. Find out what to expect when horizontal meets vertical. Carole Ceja joined the Chicago office of her firm in 2006 after earning her master’s of architecture degree from the University of Illinois - Urbana with a concentration in structural design. Her professional specialization in roofing and waterproofing is often supplemented with curtain wall and masonry wall work and has included inspections of existing buildings, development and analysis of temperature and humidity-monitoring systems, controlled water testing, insurance claim investigations, repair detail design, development of material specifications and construction drawings, and construction observation services.

High-Performance Building Enclosures Cause Condensation and Indoor Air-Quality Problems: the Need for Integrated Design and New Inves- tigation Protocols Brian Hubbs, P Eng – RDH Building Engineering, Ltd., Vancouver, BC Multifamily buildings in the lower mainland of British Columbia and the U.S. Pacific Northwest have come under increasing scrutiny due to the high incidence of water ingress and resulting deterioration of exterior wall assemblies. Current trends in architectural, HVAC and building en- closure design often result in increased potential for condensation-related moisture problems. This presenter will discuss these trends and, through a series of case studies, showcase typical problems that can occur. Innovative monitoring and modeling techniques will be presented that offer insight into the multidisciplinary cause of this problem. Recommendations will be provided for integrated architectural and HVAC designs that ac- commodate the more airtight and insulated wall and window assemblies of today’s buildings. Additionally, guidance for occupants and building managers, to help minimize risk of condensation in exterior wall assem- blies, will be offered. Brian Hubbs has 19 years of experience as a consulting engineer focused exclusively on building enclosure issues for North American climate zones. This work has included the design of new building enclosures, forensic investigation, rehabilitation, maintenance, and litigation support for existing buildings.

  5. 5. In Between: Designing Joints Within Façades Minjung Maing, PE, LEED® AP – Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc., Los Angeles, CA How façade elements will meet with the adjoining materials, assemblies, and systems should be considered early in the design phase. Left to the end stages, the interfaces of building systems create abrupt conditions at terminations, transitions, and corners. This can produce building covers which fail to address issues of thermal performance or weather protection, including air infiltration, water penetration, fire resistance, and also the plumbing systems of the building. Although there are general guidelines for designing smaller joints such as sealant joint performance parameters, wider joints (such as expansion and seismic joints) are under-represented and create delays and confusion during construction. Using case studies, the presenter will demonstrate how to detail different types of noncon- forming joints that have been redesigned to comply with performance criteria. Minjung Maing has 10 years’ experience with building envelope performance and integration of design, testing, and construction processes. She has been involved in various remedial design and new construction projects, including custom design of curtain walls, windows, roofing, wall cladding systems as precast panels, EIFS, cement plaster, brick and stone veneer, metal panels, and plaza and below-grade waterproofing.
