Successful Renovations and Additions

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.
  • Gain confidence in the ability to specify and identify any code related issues or requirements in order to facilitate proper construction.
  • Demonstrate how to investigate the important conditions and bring attention to critical issues.
  • Identify and integrate strategies that involve existing conditions, building design, structural concerns, and common issues.

This Course Covers:

  • Renovations
    • Pre-Design: Existing Conditions

Successful Site Design

Instructor:  Wayde Hoppe

While land developers are seeking to maximize their land use and minimize their development costs, governmental regulations are applying pressures on budgets that can kill a project.  Architects are being relied upon to steer site decisions and engineering professionals in order to produce cost effective and functional designs that meet the myriad of growing municipal requirements.  In this 3 hour, fully narrated course you will learn to navigate your entire team through the challenges and pit falls of site development, all the time with an eye toward building design.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Understand the process of securing the appropriate information that will help to develop a scope, schedule, and budget.
  • Be able to develop a building program, including site selection, utilization and wayfinding.
  • Outline at least one design strategy based on site standards and utility coordination.
  • Summarize the steps that must be taken to in order to move forward with approvals, bidding and construction.

This Course Covers:

  • Securing Information
  • Programming and Site Evaluation
  • Site Selection, Utilization, and Wayfinding
  • Laying Out the Design
  • Site Standards
  • Utility Coordination
  • Preparing a Site Plan
  • Documents and Contract Administration

Getting Decked:  And Choosing How That Happens

Instructor:  Paul Spite

Despite our need for shelter from elements, we have always sought opportunity to get back into or close to nature. A large part of our effort to reunite with nature has revolved around creating outdoor spaces adjoining our houses. There, we can get outside to enjoy favorable climate conditions, at whatever time we choose.

These outdoor spaces go by many names and have manifested as lanais, porches, screened enclosures, patios, etc. The most common outdoor spaces, constructed and attached to homes in western cultures, are outdoor decks, balconies and patios. For the purposes of this course, we will explore options available to build decks, balconies, and structures that are usually supported at some point above grade.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • The evolving use of different materials to construct safe and usable outdoor surfaces
  • Strengths and weaknesses of each available outdoor surface option
  • New surfacing options that have been developed to overcome decking material limitations
  • How surfacing materials are being combined to minimize weaknesses and maximize strengths
  • Decking / Balconies made of wood, man-made materials, aluminum, concrete and Porcelain?


Acoustical Design In Modern Architecture

Course Instructor:  Paul Spite

Unwanted sound impacts and affects inhabitants of our created spaces. If it not already, controlling noise will quickly become a mandated concern for designers. Attesting to increasing regulatory focus on noise, there is a recent proliferation of standards, guidelines, and codes regarding acoustics.

Very soon, many of these guidelines will no longer be mere suggestions. Most concerns covered in these standards can be addressed with a basic understanding on how sound travels and is reflected, blocked, absorbed, or transmitted by materials and assemblies chosen in designing envelopes.

Acoustic design is best addressed in an incremental fashion. This course was written to do just that. Fundamentals are first covered, including basic principles regarding sound, how its energy moves through matter, how its path and intensity can be altered, and how success in the manipulation of sound is measured. Known design strategies are discussed for controlling sound moving; from exterior to interior spaces, from interior spaces to adjacent spaces, within interior spaces, through structural components, and through building systems. Design considerations are outlined for numerous common building functions. Finally, acoustic codes and guidelines in existence now, are listed for consideration.

After completing this course  participants will be able to:

  • Design objectives and recommended best practices for building types where poor acoustics directly impact productivity and health of the users.
  • Determine sources of noise that negatively impact users of built environments, generated both outside and from within buildings, including both air borne and structure borne sounds.
  • Outline basic design practices for effectively controlling; sound transfer between exterior and interior spaces, noise transfer from interior space to adjacent spaces, and the reverberation of sound generated within spaces.
  • Provide an overview of regulations and guidelines that either are, or may become law underscoring a need for competency in acoustic design, before legislatures make designing for noise control mandatory.

This Course Covers:

  • Acoustics in General
  • General Vocabulary Regarding Sound and Nature of Sound
  • Production, Control, sound transmission and Reception
  • Audible Sound Frequencies
  • Effects of Sound on People
  • Principals of Acoustics
  • Sound Behavior Patterns
  • Acoustic Measurements
  • Amplified Sound
  • Design Solutions for Specific Concerns Regardles of Project Type
  • Resisting transmission of noise from the exterior into the interior of a space
  • Resisting horizontal and vertical transmission of noise from space to adjacent space, including structure borne sound
  • Controlling reverberation time of sound generated within a space
  • Masking unwanted noise with sound generating systems
  • Controlling system sounds, especially HVAC noises, that enter a space
  • Design Considerations by Specific Project Type
