September 28 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

1.0 LU/HSW

Free

AIA Long Beach / South Bay Committee on the Environment (COTE) & Southern California Edison, a Collaborative Partnership

Description:

Most houses are built with a surplus of wood framing that isn’t structurally necessary. Reducing that volume of wood means less cost and more insulation, especially in wall assemblies. The course will go over the basics of wood framing, then take you beyond typical framing practices and why alternatives are important. We’ll cover framing technical terms like “O.C.,” Cripple, Trimmer, etc. and delve into alternative systems such as Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS). We’ll discuss Framing Factors and how they affect your energy compliance report. This course will also cover the origin of Advanced Framing and why it’s a great choice when framing buildings with wood, even with exterior clad insulation.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand residential framing basics
  • Learn ways to use the minimum amount of lumber to get the job done
  • Understand Framing Factors and how they affect Energy Design Rating (EDR)/ T-24 Compliance
  • The Advanced Framing savings potential in lumber, time, and money
