  • Welcome to the Sustainable Structural Materials and Methods ontinuing education course brought to you by Lamboo Incorporated. My name is _____ and I’ll be talking with you today about some of the sustainable options for the structural portion of your next project.
  • Lamboo is a structural grade laminated bamboo material which combines the renewability of the bamboo grass with the innovation of laminated lumber to create a truly inspirational product. Lamboo Incorporated is spearheading the efforts to integrate this material into internationally recognized institutions such as ASTM (The American Society for Testing Materials) and ICC (The International Code Council) for use within the construction market worldwide. The product has already appeared in the window and door industry, where structural stability is a must, and through their current partners they are capable of producing structural members that meet just about any project’s needs. Due to the aesthetic characteristics of the material it is best utilized in situations where it is left exposed.
  • With several standard color and grain options to choose from, this material can set the aesthetic mood for any space. The standard colors are created by thermal treatment, so that coloration you see carries through the entirety of the material, but a variety of stains are also available should a project require a specific tone. The material was chosen for use in the University of Illinois’ Solar Decathlon project in 2010 for its renewable characteristics and superior structural performance. Lamboo can be used to create beams, columns, and trusses as well as in pre-fabricated layups and curtain wall systems. A project could potentially meet almost all of its structural needs by using Lamboo’s laminated bamboo material.
  • Testing has proven that Lamboo performs exceedingly well structurally. Compressive strengths exceeding 13,000 psi (parallel to grain) and Tensile strengths between 21,000 – 55,000 (parallel to grain) have been achieved. Lamboo is on average 20% more stable than wood in temperature and moisture changes, 10 times stronger in tension, and 3 times stronger mechanically. More information and figures regarding Lamboo’s structural capabilities can be found in their resource library on their website. Lamboo can be harvested at 4-6 years, making the material an extremely renewable solution for the structural market. The silica content and arrangement within the material helps give it antimicrobial and anti-pest characteristics, ensuring that this product won’t suffer from termite or mold damage.
  • --talk about the aviation fire tests which showed it’s performance as compared with steel-- Like Engineered Wood, Lamboo performs exceptionally well under fire conditions. Structural members have been tested and meet the top requirements for Class 1 ASTM E648 Critical Radiant Panel tests and Class A ASTM E84 Surface Burning tests. Dimensional members from Lamboo produce a similar charring layer seen in heavy timbers and Engineered Wood members.
  • A building’s structural elements can be much more than than just the load-bearing aspect of the design. Architecturally exposed structural systems can greatly add to the intrigue a building design offers. However, the decision to expose structural elements should not be made lightly. There are several advantages and disadvantages to consider.
  • Some advantages in specifying exposed structural elements include increased space and ceiling heights, access to mechanical and lighting equipment, and showcasing of unique structural design and fastening methods,. However, poor acoustics, cost of design can fluctuations, and excess fabrication times due to finishing requirements are possible disadvantages. However, if the structural design of your project deserves to stand out, why shouldn’t it?
  • Welcome to the High Efficiency window and Door Systems Continuing education course brought to you by Lamboo Incorporated. My name is _____ and I’ll be talking with you today about some energy efficient strategies that can help you choose the right window or door for your next project.
  • One instance where structure is not only exposed but highlighted is in curtain wall design. Curtain walls rely directly upon a structural system in order to remain in place and provide an effective exterior envelope. Although curtain walls themselves are non-load bearing, they do require enough structure to support their own self weight as well as resist lateral loads. Often times the structure which supports larger curtain walls can be left exposed as well.
  • Lamboo’s inherit structural capabilities and dimensional stability allows it to function very effectively in curtain wall and storefront systems. The raw materials necessary for production of the material can be easily and sustainably resourced, making it an ideal choice for environmentally conscious projects. The product’s antimicrobial properties allow it to resist moisture build-up and mold, and the silica content of the material acts as a natural insect deterrent.
  • Lamboo can replace large portions of the aluminum that is prominent in most storefront and curtain wall systems. It can also replace the steel back-up supports, making for a consistent material pallet throughout the entirety of the system.
  • Lamboo can also be utilized in sunscreens and shading devices as well.
  • Lamboo can also be utilized in sunscreens and shading devices as well.
  • Welcome to the High Efficiency window and Door Systems Continuing education course brought to you by Lamboo Incorporated. My name is _____ and I’ll be talking with you today about some energy efficient strategies that can help you choose the right window or door for your next project.
  • Fenestration can be described as any opening in the envelope of a building. That includes windows, doors, skylights, and any other type of opening you can dream up. When we create openings like this is a building envelope we leave it vulnerable to outside conditions. Typically our two main problems are temperature bridging and water leakage. Air infiltration can be either a welcomed or avoided aspect, depending on the situation. Solar Heat Gain can be welcomed in colder climates to aid in the heating of a space, but must be prevented in warming climates where cooling loads rain dominant. Thermal bridging, both in the frame and glazing elements of a window or door, can be prevented by choosing an appropriate material and amount of it for the job.
  • Lamboo, an engineered bamboo product, functions similarly to hardwoods. However, Lamboo has a much better dimensional stability and can be more sustainably sourced.The product’s antimicrobial properties allow it to resist moisture build-up and mold, andthe silica content of the material acts as a natural insect deterrent. Due to the density of the product, it does suffer from moderate thermal bridging, but this same feature allows it to perform well structurally. The product can be milled with the same tools as hardwoods, making production easier.
  • Shown here is a graph comparing Lamboo’s dimensional stability to several common hardwoods. Frame systems which incorporate Lamboo are far less susceptible to warp and deformation.
  • Aluminum cladding can be added to the exterior for protection against weathering. This integration makes the system easier to maintain and more durable.
  • Shown here is an example of a Lamboo interior element with an Aluminum exterior element. Systems such as this can alsobe integrated into storefront and curtain walls designs.
  • Lamboo can also be integrated into moving wall systems such as NanaWall. Due to its structural strength Lamboo makes an excellent addition to both large and small designs.
  • Due to it’s inherit aesthetic value, Lamboo makes a great interior finishing material. Exterior grade Lamboo is available to be utilized as an element which is exposed to weathering.
  • The efficiency of a fenestration system can be rated several ways. Through LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits, a project can receive the certification it needs by adhering to guidelines put in the place by the USGBC(United States Green Building Council). U-factors can help with this process as well as guide a designer not seeking LEED certification. A commonly overlooked facet of efficiency doesn’t come from a systems performance, but the manner in which it is produced and deconstructed. Things such as embodied energy, recyclability, and reusability are ways of measuring these aspects efficiency.
  • Windows and Doors can attribute to a multitude of LEED credits. Some products may not satisfy all credits, while others satisfy many. The actual design of a project and the way it is carried out and constructed may also to lead to several credits, which can be affected by the placement of fenestration and products chosen. The following slides break down which credits fenestration can apply towards for LEED New Construction 2009 standards, the most up to date system as of Fall 2011, and how many points can be attained. In the homes category, there are even more credits available. As you can see by the total listed here, there is a possibility for a project to gain certification by satisfying these credits alone.
  • The sustainable sites category has a possibility of only 1 credit. A prerequisite must be met before this credit can be attained, but designing to contain glare within your fenestration system can help a designer attain this credit.The energy and atmosphere category boasts the most possible points. A prerequisite must also be met for this category. This requires a project as a whole to meet certain energy performance guidelines which can be greatly affected by the abilities of an envelope and fenestration to function efficiently. Credit 1 can be worth a total of 19 points, depending on the actual energy performance of a building as compared to typical buildings of similar size and function. Point value depends on the percentage of the project’s required energy produced/saved by this fenestration system. The materials and resources category can amount to 8 possible LEED credits. Credit 2 can be attained by purchasing windows and doors with recyclable packaging materials. Windows which feature a moderate amount of recycled content can help gain points for Credit 4. By using materials that are manufactured and harvested, extracted, or recovered within 500 miles, a designer is able to attain Credit 5. 1 point is awarded for the first 10% and another point is awarded for the second 10%. Rapidly renewable resources such as the bamboo used in Lamboo products can help gain credit 6. Using woods from forests certified by organizations such as the FSC and SFI can help gain credit 7.
  • The indoor Environmental Quality category can account for 6 possible points. Credit 2 can be attained by designing for increased ventilation through the size and positioning of operable windows. Credits 4.2 and 4.4 can be attained by using materials which use low VOC adhesives, paints, and coatings such as Lamboo. Credit 6.2 can be attained by incorporating operable windows. By carefully designing a building’s fenestration to utilize daylight and increase views between the interior and exterior a designer can attain credits 8.1 and 8.2 in this category.If your choice of products are notably and measurably extremely efficient, they may be applicable for Credit 1 under the Innovation in Design category. Regional Priority credits can be gained by excelling in a pre-determined credit area which is assigned to the geographic location in which the project is to take place.
  • Lamboo can help a designer attain these specific LEED credits. Bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource, able to be harvest after 4-6 years of growth. Lamboo has the ability to harvest bamboo from FSC certified forests in China, and is in the process of certifying its forests in South American and Mexico. The adhesives used to manufacture Lamboo have no added formaldehyde and low VOC values. Two Innovation in Design credits are available based on Lamboo being an environmentally preferable material and the life cycle assessment and environmental impact of Lamboo.
  • Listed here are typical U-factors for various framing materials. A lower U-factor means that a certain material is less likely to absorb heat. These values are based on general figures and do not apply to all frame constructions. For instance the 3-wood frame attained a U-factor of 0.125, far less than the wood value listed here.
  • Embodied energy can be a major factor in the total environmental impact of a product. It can depend on where the product or material is sourced from, the manufacturing process, post and pre-consumer recycled content, transportation of the product, and deconstruction and degradability of a product. Listed here are some general figures associated with some of the framing materials previously mentioned.
  • The ability of a product to be recycled or reused after its original purposing is a key part of the sustainability of that product. Pre-consumer recyclables are any scraps or byproducts of the manufacturing process which are re-used in the manufacturing facility. Post-consumer recyclables are any materials which are recycled after they have been introduced into the market as a product. Some materials can be made from recycled content as well. Aluminum is commonly made from recycled content, both pre and post-consumer. Some products are able to be recycled, but the cost of doing so and equipment needed make the process illogical and redundant. Products that are biodegradable do not need to be recycled.
  • Welcome to the Designing Interiors with Sustainable Materials Continuing Education course brought to you by Lamboo Incorporated. My name is _____ and I’ll be talking with you today about some sustainable material choices for the interiors of various building types.
  • Lamboo is a laminated bamboo product made in a proprietary process utilizing the most sustainable and ecological adhesives and procedures to attain the best and only available structural bamboo on the market. For interior design purposes the product can be used in table and countertops, stair treads, wall Claddings, furniture, and ceiling panels. Because the material can be manufactured as a structural grade, you don’t have to worry about durability. Bamboo is naturally antimicrobial and the proprietary adhesives and manufacturing processes only add to this benefit. The Lamboo Design series features both solid panels and veneers which can be laminated onto various substrates. Although Lamboo is not made from recycled material, the manufacturing process produces little to no waste, as scrap material is used in our strand products. Lamboo’s price per square foot is considerably less expensive than other engineered products, and can be specified into a variety of applicable project dimensions.
  • With several standard color and grain options to choose from, this material can set the aesthetic mood for any space. The standard colors are created by thermal treatment, so that coloration you see carries through the entirety of the material, but a variety of stains are also available should a project require a specific tone. the vertical grain option offers a tighter more uniform look, while the horizontal grain has a more pronounced look where the nodes join. The strand grain type is more closely related to the look of natural wood. The material can also be cross laminated for an even stronger product.
  • Lamboo veneers offer an aesthetic similar to wood in 3 color options and 3 grain layups. Lamboo can also be finished with a multitude of different stains to create the color necessary for your project.
  • Table and countertops must be durable enough to withstand frequent use and exposure to moisture, while still providing the aesthetic appeal that a centerpiece requires. This application also carries the most concern for sanitation needs. The listed materials are applicable towards table and countertop needs and will be reviewed after this section.
  • Table and countertops must be durable enough to withstand frequent use and exposure to moisture, while still providing the aesthetic appeal that a centerpiece requires. This application also carries the most concern for sanitation needs. The listed materials are applicable towards table and countertop needs and will be reviewed after this section.
  • Acoustics and aesthetics play a major role when wall and Ceiling cladding is concerned. The listed materials are applicable towards wall and/or ceiling cladding needs and will be reviewed after this section.
  • Stair treads must be structurally rigid, have some sort of anti-slip coating or finish, and must be able to withstand frequent traffic. The listed materials are applicable towards stair tread needs and will be reviewed after this section.
  • Furniture can be created from some of the same materials found throughout the rest of an interior, making for a truly unique design pallet. The listed materials are applicable towards furniture design and will be reviewed after this section.

  • 24. Methods
  • 25.  A building’s structural elements can be much more than than just the load-bearing aspect of the design. Architecturally exposed structural systems can greatly add to the intrigue a building design offers. However, the decision to expose structural elements should not be made lightly. There are several advantages and disadvantages to consider.
  • 26.  Advantages: • By leaving the structural elements of a building exposed the designer is able to create a more spacious interior environment. • Lighting and mechanical equipment can be easily accessed and maintained. • Connections and material finishes are able to be showcased. • Shorter construction times • Lower construction costs due to lack of finishing materials Disadvantages: • Some spaces may suffer acoustically due to the lack of finishing materials, although this affect may be desired
  • 27.  Theterm “curtain wall” refers to a non-load bearing exterior wall enclosure anchored to a building’s structure. Although non-load bearing, curtain walls must support self weight and effectively transfer that weight back to the structure. Utilizing materials with inherent structural capabilities can lead to entirely new and innovative curtain wall designs.
  • 28.  Curtain Wall Systems • Vertical Mullion Components • Horizontal Transom Components • Aesthetic supplement for supporting curtain wall self weight • Can act as structural back-up for curtain wall as well • Mullion cap not necessary but may be used • Easily integrates into most common stick style systems
