2017 Katz Roadshow AIA Better Building Clinic – Evanston, IL
Event on 2017-08-11 07:30:00
Evanston Lumber is proud to host a FREE, unique hands-on carpentry clinic devoted to better building practices—from the jobsite to the architect. This event is exclusively for architects! The all-day course will cover traditional installation techniques and evolving construction technologies for modern materials. From understanding wood and moisture content to improved weather resistive barriers, including rainscreen walls and exterior cladding, along with moisture management for storm-proofing roofs, this course incorporates lessons learned the hard way and leading trends in building science. The clinic closes with a one-hour section on deck design, focusing on code requirements and effective plans for ledgers, railing, and stairs. This event is a hands-on program, not slideshow-based—our presenters actually do live installations and demonstrations.   *AIA CES APPROVED* AIA members will receive: 5.0 LU Hours   Event Schedule: 7:30 – 8:30:  Breakfast served8:30 – 9:30:  Moisture Content & Wood Movement9:30 – 10:00:  Break10:00 – 11:00:  Pre-fit Exterior Doors11:00 – 11:30:  Break11:30 – 12:30:  Rainscreen walls & Exterior Trim12:30 – 1:30:  Lunch1:30 – 2:30:  Storm-proofing Roofs2:30 – 3:00:  Break3:00 – 4:00:  Decks & Railings
