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

Successful Building Design

Instructor:  Wayde Hoppe

Developers of commercial, industrial and institutional buildings are driven by return on investment. Today’s building owners are savvy and they seek to balance the initial cost with the payback. Functionality, aesthetics, and methods of code compliance are each guided by financial investment and return. In this course, you will learn, from the foundation to the roof, from the appearance to the operation, from construction to maintenance, tried and proven methods for analyzing design decisions that will lead you to a greater reputation as a designer.

Most architects are familiar with the design process and are usually comfortable with at least one or more of the steps. However, what we learn in school needs to be coupled with the requirements of today’s many codes and regulations, the changes in material development, our client’s demand for a return on investment and the realities of construction budgets.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Be able to integrate design concepts with current codes and regulations.
  • Translate the intentions and goals of the customer into a safe and cost-effective project.
  • Utilize current materials and goods to ensure proper construction practices.
  • Recognize the importance of meeting the client’s demand for return on investment.

Construction Documents for Successful Projects

Instructor:  Wayde Hoppe

A well prepared and accurate technical specification can be easily undone if Divisions 00 and 01 of the project manual are deficient. The ‘front-end’ specification, or general conditions, is the tool that directs the contractor from the day he is introduced to the project through to completion. Without it, the architect, the client, and the builder are vulnerable to being sadly surprised. A well written ‘front-end’ can protect the architect and the builder from accusations of neglect, cost over-runs, demands for an expansion of the scope and much more. This course will teach the many elements of the front-end specification that are essential to success.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Be able to integrate design concepts with current codes and regulations.
  • Translate the intentions and goals of the customer into a safe and cost-effective project.
  • Understand and be able to comply with federal laws if the project is paid for with governmental funds.


Danger in the Damp – Dealing with Mold

Instructor:  Paul Spite

Despite our best efforts to keep it out, water has found its way inside the building. This course examines the question of what to do next, since abandoning the building to its eventual collapse is not usually an option.

The material briefly examines design and construction methods of systems designed to withstand water penetration. An understanding of these systems gives us a starting point in finding sources of intrusion, and a starting point for how to best repair them and prevent further damage. Sealing a failed envelope is the first step in remediation. Otherwise, the appearance of mold will likely be the next step in rendering our damaged buildings uninhabitable.

Once the source of the problem has been addressed, steps can be taken to reclaim full use of the built environment. Assessment of moisture damage must be done next to best determine and prioritize steps toward repair or replacement of damaged components. Immediate and critical remedies are examined, as well as those which can be addressed after a couple days have passed. Lastly, any resulting mold growth must be eliminated, and steps taken to prevent its recurrence.

Because of its power and the many ways water finds to enter our buildings, water intrusion with accompanying mold growth is one of the most discouraging building maintenance issues to address. But we have enough accumulated experience from past battles to handle it far better moving forward.

This course is intended to equip others with that knowledge.

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Terminology used to discuss how entrapped water creates problems for building users
  • Measures to retard the infiltration of moisture into built environments
  • Where and why mold growth occurs
  • Testing and inspection to find water damage
  • Systems and procedures to inventory moisture damage following intrusion
  • Immediate and secondary actions steps to take following water intrusion
  • Indoor air quality issues and how to identify them
  • How to deal with mold growth, once it is discovered

This course covers:

  • Overview of Moisture Related Problems
  • Moisture Damage to Buildings
  • Before Damage Occurs
  • Solutions to Water Penetration Issues
  • Maintaining Building Systems as Lines of Defense
  • Dealing with Building Damage from Moisture
  • Air Quality Concerns
  • Dealing with Mold in the Airstream


Drier By Design – Designing to Keep Water Out

Instructor:  Paul Spite

With erosion paths cut into solid rock as solid evidence, water in various forms contains immense power to eat away or destroy whatever is in its path. Whether it takes a year, two hundred or ten thousand, without intervention, water can and will destroy our man-made structures. Once a problem develops that opens a pathway for intrusion, one rainy season can render a building unsuitable for human use.

We have the knowledge and tools to combat such destruction of our structures. We implement counterattacks in the design stage, during construction, and afterwards with proactive maintenance, but the battle against water begins in the design phase.

Moisture resistance principles and methods are discussed in a systematic fashion, as in one building system at a time. Fundamentals are first covered, including basic principles of water behavior and the multiple paths it takes while invading buildings. A thorough knowledge of how destruction begins and escalates drives the known design principles and material decisions used to stop such migration. Practical solutions are then discussed in detail.

The discussion is needed. The physical price tag for both our structures and their occupants is too high to allow water free entry into our occupied spaces.

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • A basic understanding of how water moves, migrates, and behaves
  • Typical sources of excess moisture in our built environments
  • Proactive prevention of unwanted moisture through planning and design
  • Methods used during construction to prevent the intrusion of water
  • Post-construction prevention of leakage by building envelope inspection
  • Common points of failure through which water can gain entrance
  • Prevention of water intrusion through control of condensation
  • Glossary of Terms Regarding Water Intrusion
  • Water Behavior
  • Moisture Problems
  • Sources of Water
  • Water and Building Components
  • Moisture from Plumbing Leaks, HVAC Systems, Ventilation Systems, and Condensation
  • Tightening the Envelope
  • Vapor and Air Retarders
  • Combatting Negative Air Pressure


Successful Code Analysis: Occupancy Classification Business, Group B

Instructor:  Wayde Hoppe

Most colleges spend very little time giving instruction to designers on how to comply with the building code. This may be because there used to be so many different types of building codes that it was impractical to offer instruction on every one of them. However, our country is moving closer to a nationwide standard. As we do, it is useful to know the basics on how to navigate your way through the building code. In this lesson we will look at the steps necessary to review a project against the building code, specifically looking at chapters 3, 5, 6, 7, and 9.

These chapters will allow us to identify the building use, the building construction type, the requirements for sprinkling, the requirements for frontage on clear area around the building, the height of the building and whether the building will be protected or not. We will review the requirements of chapters 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 and we will discuss what options are available for a designer in his attempt to bring the desires of his client together with the limitations of the code. In order to get a clear understanding of this process, we will examine several sample projects. Our projects will all be a business use group. We will cover generic material about the building code and we will explore a specific use group and how the code applies to it.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Specify and identify the building use, the building construction type, the requirements for sprinkling, frontage on clear area around the building, the height of the building and whether the building will be protected or not.
  • Understand and be able to comply with a specific use group and how the code applies to it.
  • Be able to integrate design concepts with current codes and regulations.
  • Translate the goals of the customer into a safe and cost-effective project that accounts for the limitations of the code.
