Floods are the #1 natural disaster in the United States as all 50 states have experienced floods or flash floods. To protect the health, safety, and welfare of residential and non-residential structures and their occupants during a flood event, these structures must be built into compliance with local, state, and federal codes and regulations.
This course will clarify the regulations, codes, and standards as they relate to sustaining foundations in flood hazard areas, as well as analyze the role of building compliance in lowering flood insurance rates and what mitigation solutions are available to existing structures.
In addition, this course will focus on the potential hazards to buildings located in floodplains, the differences between wet floodproofing and dry floodproofing techniques and when they are applicable, and the differences between engineered and non-engineered flood openings and their ability to ensure resilient structures.
This one-hour course will explore the strengths and advantages of FEVE fluoropolymer topcoats for bridges and curtain walls, as well as maintenance re-coating of existing finishes. Also covered will be coating performance tests, including accelerated weathering and real-time weathering and what the implications are for the life of different coatings. In addition, the course will assess the life-cycle cost advantage and sustainability benefits of FEVE topcoats despite their higher initial cost, compared to other topcoat formulations.
As LED lighting becomes the preferred choice for industrial applications, it’s more important than ever to understand that not all LED lighting is created equal. The stakes are even higher for industrial applications; whether for new construction or retrofits, the wrong choice can mean spending thousands more each year in added energy and maintenance costs. And waiting to replace traditional metal halide or fluorescent options can be even more costly.
In this webinar you’ll learn:
- Challenges/limitations of incumbent technologies
- Advantages of LED technology for industrial applications—why now’s the time to make the switch
- What to look for when selecting your LED lighting solution
- What’s next in industrial lighting
Cree is committed to LED lighting for everyone–delivering better light experiences without compromise. That’s why we began the LED revolution and why we continue today, creating brilliantly efficient, radically simple, and exceptionally high quality solutions that transform the way people experience light. Why? Because we believe that better light changes everything. From classrooms to factory floors, that’s our mission: to better your results.
Eneref Institute examined the decisions and results of several lighting system installations that combined Sunoptics Prismatic skylights and LED lighting with daylight harvesting controls. From extensive interviews of all stakeholders, Eneref Institute offers a quick overview web forum of the multiple decision processes needed to achieve their successful results. Learn the obstacles and challenges overcome by architects, engineers and facility managers and why each stakeholder rated the final outcomes of their projects with high marks.
