October 6, 2014. What’s Happening @AIBD_National?


Job site mold management webinar

Tuesday, October 7th, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm (EDT)

CLICK HERE to register.

Have you ever noticed the mold growing on trusses and other building materials while they’re sitting on the job site waiting to be installed? What about lumber stockpiled in lumber yards and truss plants waiting to be sold? What happens to that mold after the materials are placed inside the home? Those are questions AIBD member Lyle Breeze recently had and he found the answers.

Join us for a discussion with Lyle and Will Spates, president of Indoor Environmental Technologies. Learn how these scenarios can become an issue, how to write material handling specifications that help mitigate the issues, and how to find someone like Will to resolve potential mold problems during construction.

AIBD CEWall bracing webinar: Building wood frame structures for high wind resistance.

Thursday, October 16, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm (EDT)

For wind design, prescriptive wall bracing is limited to homes in regions with wind speeds less than 110 mph.  This webinar will provide a top to bottom overview of wind resistant methods for wood framed structures located in higher wind zones.  The overall strength of a building is a function of all of the components – roof, walls, floors, and foundation – working together as a unit. Construction of durable box-type structures will be illustrated along with important connections along the critical load-path. Presented the wall bracing experts at the APA.
