This presentation initially took place at the 2021 Virtual Spring Symposium. Under the IIBEC Bylaws, all IIBEC members and registrants are required to comply with the Code of Ethics and to report any observed violations. This panel discussion will begin with a brief introduction to the IIBEC Code of Ethics and the history of its importance in IIBEC’s formation. Panel participants will then discuss ethical considerations in various scenarios related to safety, finances, professional relationships, and working with clients. The session will conclude with Q&A by audience members.  Read More

This presentation initially took place at IIBEC's 2022 International Convention and Trade Show in Orlando, Florida. Flashings are often the most challenging aspect of aluminum window system design and installation on both new and replacement projects. Although the aluminum window system and its performance are often well detailed by the window manufacturer, providing a waterproof transition of the window frame to cladding system interface can be challenging. Metal sill flashings have been used in the construction industry as a supplemental element in window systems (in addition to the manufacturer’s standard sill design). However, inadequate attention to sill flashing detailing can result in water leakage into the exterior enclosure and even into the building interior. Historically, metal sill flashing was often continued into the rough opening of the window, and this method is sometimes still used today. This presentation addresses how going beyond the standardized approach to detailing, and taking into consideration the installers’ sequencing of components during installation, can minimize potential pathways for water intrusion.

  This presentation initially took place at the 2020 Region II Meeting. This presentation will include an overview of historical masonry wall assemblies and its evolution from mass, to transitional, to cladding systems. It is important to understand the differences and how these wall systems function. Focus will be given to understanding the rationale and methodology for condition assessment and providing insight into common types of deterioration and material characteristics. Understanding the material properties, the type of construction, and its vulnerabilities will help in developing appropriate repair and restoration solutions. Prioritizing repairs, such as protecting horizontal surfaces, integrating new flashings, and repairing steel elements allows for solving the root cause of damage or water infiltration. General appropriate masonry repair and replacement options will be discussed for several types of masonry such as brick, terra cotta, stone, cast stone, and their associated mortars. Craftworkers who are trained and educated in masonry restoration are assets to project teams and play a significant role in successful historical masonry projects.

It is intended for manufacturers, general contractors, quality assurance observers, and field inspectors. 8 IIBEC Continuing Educational Hours 8 AIA Learning Units and HSW credit Read More

This is the recorded version of live webinar instruction.  This 16-hour course provides basic exterior wall technology and terminology that will be used as the fundamental base for additional exterior wall course offerings. The course covers a broad range of topics, including types and function of exterior walls, psychrometrics and moisture movement, design objectives and building code requirements, wall penetrations, materials, coatings and water repellents, and sealants. This course is aimed at those preparing to expand their knowledge into exterior walls and at those already practicing in this area who want to further develop their knowledge in exterior wall technology. Educational Credits: IIBEC: 16 CEHs | AIA: 16 LUs (including HSW credit) Instructor: Emily Lorenz, PE, IIBEC's Sr. Director of Technical Services Read More
