Successful Renovations and Additions | Approval #EC-206
Instructor: Wayde Hoppe
This course is designed to address the needs of both designers and builders. The topics that will be covered include pre-design, building design, structural concerns, making a watertight envelope, code issues, and construction details. Each of these topics will be addressed in the light of both renovation and addition projects. Real-life stories will relay information that will help any designer to successfully navigate through the challenges of this very specific type of building design.
This course will highlight the right questions, demonstrate how to investigate the important conditions and bring attention to the critical issues. Through the many following examples, this course will offer instruction on how to approach a renovation or addition project with justified confidence.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Be able to translate the requests of the client into a realistic, safe, and cost-effective project.

Drier By Design | Approval #EC-204
Instructor: Paul Spite
With erosion paths cut into solid rock as solid evidence, water in various forms contains immense power to eat away or destroy whatever is in its path. Whether it takes a year, two hundred or ten thousand, without intervention, water can and will destroy our man-made structures. Once a problem develops that opens a pathway for intrusion, one rainy season can render a building unsuitable for human use.
We have the knowledge and tools to combat such destruction of our structures. We implement counterattacks in the design stage, during construction, and afterwards with proactive maintenance, but the battle against water begins in the design phase.
Moisture resistance principles and methods are discussed in a systematic fashion, as in one building system at a time. Fundamentals are first covered, including basic principles of water behavior and the multiple paths it takes while invading buildings. A thorough knowledge of how destruction begins and escalates drives the known design principles and material decisions used to stop such migration. Practical solutions are then discussed in detail.
The discussion is needed. The physical price tag for both our structures and their occupants is too high to allow water free entry into our occupied spaces.
This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:
- A basic understanding of how water moves, migrates, and behaves
- Typical sources of excess moisture in our built environments
- Proactive prevention of unwanted moisture through planning and design
- Methods used during construction to prevent the intrusion of water
- Post-construction prevention of leakage by building envelope inspection
- Common points of failure through which water can gain entrance
- Prevention of water intrusion through control of condensation
- Glossary of Terms Regarding Water Intrusion
- Water Behavior
- Moisture Problems
- Sources of Water
- Water and Building Components
- Moisture from Plumbing Leaks, HVAC Systems, Ventilation Systems, and Condensation
- Tightening the Envelope
- Vapor and Air Retarders
- Combatting Negative Air Pressure
