2010 ADA Standards: Key Features and Elements

Instructor:  Roger Peck

The ADA is one of America’s most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life, to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services. The 2010 Standards set minimum requirements, both scoping and technical, for newly designed and constructed, or altered State and local government facilities, public accommodations, and commercial facilities to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.

This video course covers the fourth through tenth chapters of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.   The material for this course is presented by simple narration and power point video presentation, including on-site, real world video examples in various accessible buildings used by both the public and private sector.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Be able recognize what exterior and interior components can and should comply with ADA standards.
  • Outline at least one design strategy based on ADA standards for the construction of either a public or private building.
  • Identify requirements for proper maneuvering space, clearance and accessible routes.
  • Summarize the options available to the design or building professional when designing a facility per the requirements of the ADA Standards.

This course covers:

  • Accessible Routes
  • General Site & Building Elements
  • Plumbing Elements and Facilities
  • Communication Elements and Features
  • Special Rooms, Spaces and Elements
  • Built-In Elements
  • Recreational Facilities

 

Estimating and Bidding for Success

Instructor:  Paul Acker

This course is an introduction to the construction estimating process. Although this course will be beneficial to junior estimators just entering in this field, it could also help architects, engineers and contractors become more familiar with how bids are prepared. The following material will explain the methods of construction delivery, different types of estimates, and the tools needed by the estimator to tender a bid. Being able to read and understand blueprints is also integral to the estimating process. Knowing how to apply and itemize costs for specific activities and materials, based on a set of plans and related professional resources, is key. The estimator who can visualize the project, and accurately determine its costs will become one of the most important persons in any construction company.

This course covers:

  • Methods of Construction Delivery
  • Types of Contracts
  • Types of Estimates
  • Bid Documents
  • The Bid Team
  • Structuring the Bid Program
  • Parts of a Blueprint
  • Reading the Plans
  • Guidelines for Estimating

 

Manage Your Way to Big Profits

Instructor:  Paul Acker

This seven-hour course is designed to be the next step in raising your construction management skills to the next level. The class will help prepare the learner for the scope of responsibilities that a professional construction project manager, whether for residential or commercial projects, must be prepared to perform. The course begins with pre-construction services and project start-up tasks. As the project continues, controlling the finances, overseeing the project progress, safety, environmental and energy concerns are just a few of the many tasks a project manager must supervise. Finally, a successful manager must properly close out the project, all while achieving a profit, and securing a satisfied customer.

After completing this course, you will:

  • Be able to assemble a project team, ensuring they are qualified to perform the work in accordance with specifications and requirements.
  • Recognize the role of OSHA in the workplace and describe the causes of the most common workplace injuries.
  • Understand environmental regulations that govern construction activities for protecting water, air and land quality.
  • Develop a close out procedure that will verify accuracy and completion of all building component systems, including warranties and certifications, prior to issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.

This course covers:

  • Planning and Startup
  • Project Progress
  • Environmental and Energy Concerns
  • Safety
  • Close Out

Getting Decked:  And Choosing How That Happens

Instructor:  Paul Spite

Despite our need for shelter from elements, we have always sought opportunity to get back into or close to nature. A large part of our effort to reunite with nature has revolved around creating outdoor spaces adjoining our houses. There, we can get outside to enjoy favorable climate conditions, at whatever time we choose.

These outdoor spaces go by many names and have manifested as lanais, porches, screened enclosures, patios, etc. The most common outdoor spaces, constructed and attached to homes in western cultures, are outdoor decks, balconies and patios. For the purposes of this course, we will explore options available to build decks, balconies, and structures that are usually supported at some point above grade.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • The evolving use of different materials to construct safe and usable outdoor surfaces
  • Strengths and weaknesses of each available outdoor surface option
  • New surfacing options that have been developed to overcome decking material limitations
  • How surfacing materials are being combined to minimize weaknesses and maximize strengths
  • Decking / Balconies made of wood, man-made materials, aluminum, concrete and Porcelain?

 

Danger in the Damp – Dealing with Mold

Instructor:  Paul Spite

Despite our best efforts to keep it out, water has found its way inside the building. This course examines the question of what to do next, since abandoning the building to its eventual collapse is not usually an option.

The material briefly examines design and construction methods of systems designed to withstand water penetration. An understanding of these systems gives us a starting point in finding sources of intrusion, and a starting point for how to best repair them and prevent further damage. Sealing a failed envelope is the first step in remediation. Otherwise, the appearance of mold will likely be the next step in rendering our damaged buildings uninhabitable.

Once the source of the problem has been addressed, steps can be taken to reclaim full use of the built environment. Assessment of moisture damage must be done next to best determine and prioritize steps toward repair or replacement of damaged components. Immediate and critical remedies are examined, as well as those which can be addressed after a couple days have passed. Lastly, any resulting mold growth must be eliminated, and steps taken to prevent its recurrence.

Because of its power and the many ways water finds to enter our buildings, water intrusion with accompanying mold growth is one of the most discouraging building maintenance issues to address. But we have enough accumulated experience from past battles to handle it far better moving forward.

This course is intended to equip others with that knowledge.

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Terminology used to discuss how entrapped water creates problems for building users
  • Measures to retard the infiltration of moisture into built environments
  • Where and why mold growth occurs
  • Testing and inspection to find water damage
  • Systems and procedures to inventory moisture damage following intrusion
  • Immediate and secondary actions steps to take following water intrusion
  • Indoor air quality issues and how to identify them
  • How to deal with mold growth, once it is discovered

This course covers:

  • Overview of Moisture Related Problems
  • Moisture Damage to Buildings
  • Before Damage Occurs
  • Solutions to Water Penetration Issues
  • Maintaining Building Systems as Lines of Defense
  • Dealing with Building Damage from Moisture
  • Air Quality Concerns
  • Dealing with Mold in the Airstream
