The holidays are a time to reflect on our accomplishments for the past year, a time to spend with our family and friends, and a time to be thankful. I am truly thankful for the members that volunteer their time to CSI in order to make it an outstanding organization supporting the construction community. We have enjoyed welcoming new members into the Phoenix Chapter the past two months. We have also benefited from our experience with hosting CONSTRUCT 2012 in Phoenix, and have organized some outstanding programs in October and November! 2013 is just around the corner! CSI is launching brand revitalization in 2013. While a new logo and tagline are part of this process, the goal of the project is to help CSI’s chapters and members revitalize CSI’s BRAND – the experience delivered to members and potential members through chapter and region events, CSI’s publications and education, and other outreach. I look forward to sharing the brand revitalization concept with you and look forward to delivering the CSI experience to membership in 2013. Our programs and events are planned for the New Year. I encourage all to become active in a committee and join us for the monthly meetings and educational seminars slated for 2013. Please check our calendar at www.csiphoenix for up-to-date information. In closing I would like to say how much I appreciate those that volunteer their time for the Phoenix Chapter; thank you board and committee chairs! THANK YOU for your commitment and dedication throughout the year!

“The act or an instance of becoming open or being made to open.” “An open space serving as a passage or gap.” “An unfilled job or position; a vacancy.” “A breach or aperture.”1 The word “opening” has many meanings, as indicated above. However, with its many specific code-related definitions, it is surprising that the International Building Code (IBC)2 does not provide its own definition of “opening.” So, in the absence of a code-specific definition, the latter definition from the above list is very apt when referring to doors, windows, and other “breaches” in fire-resistance-rated assemblies.

CONSTRUCT 2012 UPDATE By: Brian McClure, RA, CSI, CDT,

Somewhere around the spring of 2011, the Phoenix Chapter was informed that we would host CONSTRUCT 2012…Boy, did that change my life for the next 2 years! As I share stories of the individuals in my journey, there was no consent from them on this article and the opinions are my own, there is no intent to embarrass anyone, so please accept the sincerity with which my story rambles……and as most of you understand now, I am not always the happy-go-lucky fellow you're accustomed to….I recognize I can be a pain from time to time. Okay, on a rare occasion. So I start with my co-conspirator, Gary Campbell. Gary and I were on the chapter board together so we knew one another, but I had never worked with Gary outside of CSI, so I was not sure who he was as an individual, or how we would work together. Well eighteen months later, we both survived each other and like they say, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Gary and I were able to spread the work load and somehow when one of us was swamped with work, the other was able pick up the load and continues the organization of the tasks and volunteers. I now consider Gary a close friend and trusted resource for anything CSI, as well as his primary function as a hardware consultant. So our first motion was to send people to CONSTRUCT 2011 in Chicago, so we could find out what we needed to do, what national would do, and what Chicago could teach us. Gary and I went to Chicago with Socorro Rudolph and Don Zanrosso. Although there was a lot accomplished in Chicago at CONSTRUCT, it was the social gatherings and dinners with these three, plus Robin Snyder and Richard Vullo that were memorable for me. I again knew most of these people through social contact at CSI, but had not had any time with them away from CSI. The second evening, I had planned on filling up on hors devours at the reception and then go to my room and check email and relax….after stuffing my face, I was convinced by the these four (minus Gary) to go eat Sushi. I reluctantly agreed to go, and had a great evening getting to know these wonderful people. I believe one of the quotes of the evening included, "Don, put the wasabi down!" After Chicago, Gary and I knew we would need to raise money to cover the expenses of the chapter event. I had absolutely no idea how to accomplish this major task. We discussed a couple of different options of who to approach to handle the fundraising. Neil Davison stepped up and said it was one of the few things he had not done for CSI and would be interested in it. Neil took ownership of the fundraising, and working with several people on the task team, developed reasonable packages for the monies raised that I thought were a great value in some cases. Although this task is a small asterisk in Neil's CSI membership, seeing as he was presented with his fellowship at CONSTRUCT 2012. His efforts were huge for the chapter and a great relief for me. I mentioned Robin earlier, but she also stepped up and took a large role for 2012. After passing her bar exam, she couldn't take a breath and relax, she came to one of our meetings and essentially took on half of the remaining tasks we needed to get done. Robin

completed the organizing of the needed volunteers, listing the needs on Volunteer Spot, paying the website services out of her pocket, communicating with all of the volunteers, kept Gary and I well informed and other things. I cannot imagine how many hours she had used to accomplish all of these tasks. Some insight into me, I am far from a "social butterfly," I am not a great conversationalist and am very uncomfortable having conversations with people I do not know. Although these are somewhat separate ramblings, looking back on the journey, the best part has been the people I've worked with and been introduced to through CSI. If I had not been involved with CONSTRUCT, I likely would never have gotten to know most of these individuals. I'd like to encourage all of us to make an effort to step outside your comfort zone, taking a chance that there are others out there that would be great resources and just wonderful people to meet and know. The people I have listed are merely our cohorts in the Phoenix Chapter, I have similar stories for others across the country that I have met at CONSTRUCT, including numerous of our region members. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of the volunteers, sponsors and especially those of you that did both! Gary and I have received numerous congratulations for CONSTRUCT 2012, but these are the people that deserve the thanks! My apologies if I leave anyone out; there were numerous volunteers that made this possible! And this list doesn’t even include the individuals that were needed to fill the 160 slots needed during the event.

SHELDON WOLFE What is an Architect?

Sheldon Wolfe, RA, FCSI, CCS, CCCA, CSC

The profession of architecture has changed significantly, but the perception of what an architect does has remained much the same. So what's the big deal? As is often said, perception is reality, and therein lies the problem. What architects do now no longer agrees with what the public, and even architects themselves think they do. Most people don't really understand what today's architects do. They think architects know about planning and design, and how to create buildings that are responsive to owners' needs. In that, they are correct; architects by training learn how to do these things, and they do them well. Unfortunately, most people also believe the architect is still the Master Builder, who knows everything about construction materials and methods, actively manages the work, and tells the contractor exactly what to do. One of AIA's first goals was to elevate and protect the profession of architecture. They eventually succeeded; today, the practice of architecture, and the word itself, are protected throughout the United States. This protection is based on the idea that only an architect knows about all aspects of construction. While that was true at one time, today's architects, who may be master planners and master designers, don't know much about construction materials or methods. And there is nothing wrong with that - we need master planners and designers. It is clear, however, that the countless products and the special knowledge they require make it impossible for a design firm to understand the construction part of architecture. Architecture schools do not teach much about building materials, structure, or systems, and they largely ignore construction methods, scheduling, and costs. Many have decried this lack of attention to the nuts-and-bolts part of architecture, but perhaps it now is simply impossible to teach all the things an architect would need to know to perform in the same way they did a hundred years ago, even with the intern development program. Contractors, on the other hand, do know about construction, and that's what they're paid to know. Once merely workers hired to follow the direction of architects, contractors no longer rely on the architect to explain what has to be done. Instead, they now are expected to interpret the architect's documents and to determine for themselves what must be done to construct the building. They may know little about planning or design, but once construction begins, their practical experience, as opposed to the theoretical experience of the architect, becomes more valuable to the owner, and they are seen by owners as more realistic, more knowledgeable, even more important than the architect. Architects often complain about contractors making them look bad by telling the owner they can do the same thing for less money, or worse, that the architect is an idiot. Architects find it hard to respond, because they don't know what things cost, and they can't defend their design decisions with hard numbers. It's a lot easier for the owner to understand saving time or money, than to understand why it's important to resolve the tension between the earth elements and the sky elements. The evidence suggests the role of the architect will continue to decline. Architects can have a strong role in design-bid-build, but contractors are becoming more

important even there. Design-build entities, the modern equivalent of the master builder, typically are led by contractors, rather than architects, which seems to demonstrate the lesser value of Big D design. Not that design-build necessarily means bad design; no project delivery method guarantees either good design or good construction. Many architects claim they should be the leaders of the IPD (integrated project delivery) team, but given the direction they're heading, that's a tough sell. More than a hundred years ago, architects decided an arts education was more important than hands-on experience, and they have little interest in how things go together or what they cost. For the past fifty years, they have been trying to minimize their responsibility for construction. With that history, how can they justify again assuming control of the entire project? If architects are not going to reverse those trends, they must find ways to clarify what they do, and shift liability to those who are taking on more of what architect's once did. They should start by admitting they are not master builders, and should not be considered as such. Instead, they should emphasize the value of good planning and design, and be able to prove to owners that the long term value of good design is more important than first cost. Despite AIA's efforts to reduce the architect's liability through changes in the general conditions, architects continue to be found liable for things that clearly are excluded from their responsibilities. I believe the main reason is that the public still thinks architects are in control of the entire project. Actively changing the public's perception could help juries understand what architects really control, and result in decisions that more closely reflect the commensurate responsibilities. Design-build continues to grow, and unless architects are willing to take the lead, many will find themselves working for a contractor. Contractors will continue to see cost and schedule as their main concerns, but many also are sensitive to visual design, and are willing to work with architects who offer superior design and planning services. To maintain their position in design-bid-build, architects should establish relationships with those contractors to better serve owners who still favor design-bid-build. The bottom line is this: Those who are willing to accept greater risk will see greater rewards, and they will be the leaders.

TECHNICAL ARTICLE By: Tony Valdez, Past Board Member, CSI Phoenix Chapter, Treasurer, ICRI Arizona Chapter

I have been in the Arizona construction material supply trade for 30+ years. Construction practices have evolved during this period. A subject close to my heart is concrete repair. Interestingly, 30+ plus years ago, we basically relied on 100% solids epoxy bonding adhesives and non-shrink cement grout patches when it came to addressing general concrete repair. The process by which we accounted for surface prep amounted to a clean, dust free surface. The bad news is patches didn’t last very long, the good news is our market began to pay attention to how the rest of the country conducted repair of concrete. In the 1980’s, the consensus was that Arizona’s buildings were too new and therefore not candidates for repair, restoration, or rehabilitation. Concrete repair specialty contractors were few and far between in Arizona. By the mid to late 1980’s manufacturers and Arizona based suppliers became aware of the importance of addressing the repair market. General and subcontractors took the time to learn and become familiar with the latest in materials and technologies related to the repair of concrete. It was about this period of time that we became familiar with the ICRI – International Concrete Repair Institute. The ICRI is made up of building owners, contractors, engineers, specifiers, manufacturers and suppliers. Unfortunately for Arizona, organizing an ICRI Arizona Chapter fell short. As the years passed Arizona became a construction force. A level of sophistication surfaced. Various manufacturers promoting the latest technologies offering product solutions for fixing broken buildings took our market to a level not many locals had traveled before. Concrete repair specialty contractors flocked to our state to take advantage of opportunities. Twenty-four hour bonding agents, polymer-modified mortars, micro-silica blends, spray applied repair systems and waterproof protective coatings started to make their ways into our projects. We had passed concrete repair puberty. Through this repair revolution one item that continued to rear its head was surface preparation. There still existed the slippery slope of who is responsible for accepting the substrate prior to a patching process. Let’s face it, no one wanted to take on the risk of calling the substrate “good enough”. In the late 1990’s ICRI introduced Guideline 310.2-1997 Selecting & Specifying Concrete Surface Preparation for Sealers, Coatings and Overlays. In conjunction with the technical guideline, ICRI also introduced CSP – Concrete Surface Profile “Chips”– 9 distinct profile configurations. As a set these profiles replicate degrees of roughness considered to be suitable for the application of one or more of a sealer, coating or polymer overlay system, up to a ¼” thickness. (ref. ICRI Tech Guideline 310.2-1997, page 6). The ICRI CSP tool has taken the debate regarding substrate acceptance and removed the subjectivity from it. It has turned into an industry standard. Many repair professionals carry CSP chips and refer to them as needed. Major material manufacturers have begun to list the CSP number related to the most effective surface profile preferred based on a project need and material application. There are many quality products and materials produced. We’ve all heard the term “the success of a patch is based on the quality of the surface preparation”. Too many systems have failed due to lack of the correct surface profile. But by this standard, not only do we now have a way to specify a level of “roughness” and the process to achieve it, but we also can identify which is most appropriate for each specific subsequent topping. When specifying concrete coatings, toppings, or repair materials, a this standard can be a valuable tool for specifiers. Being able to unambiguously state the concrete preparation requirements allows contractors to have “apples-to-apples” bids and helps deliver a successful installation. In 2008 The International Concrete Repair Institute – Arizona Chapter was formed. It took many years to arrive where the Arizona repair market is today. Despite our recent down economy, our ICRI Chapter has achieved growth and stability.

NATION’S 12 "PRETTIEST PAINTED PLACES” INCLUDE MANY COLORFUL HIDDEN GEMS Originally published by Paint Quality Institute Submitted by Tim Garver, CSI, CDT, LEED AP, Dunn Edwards

A panel of judges with expertise in paint and exterior color schemes reviewed the entries and named two winners from each of six different geographic areas: In the Northeast Region, the winners were Brookville, Pennsylvania and Downtown Frederick, Maryland. Brookville is a beautiful historic western Pennsylvania town with hundreds of artfully painted Victorian homes and buildings. Downtown Frederick’s Main Street area, home to a vibrant arts community, has beautifully painted architecture dating to the 1700s. The Southeast Region winners were Historic Downtown Smithfield, Virginia and Key West, Florida. The former is a quaint river town with many historic structures ranging in style from Colonial to Federal to Victorian. Key West, southernmost of the Florida Keys, has brightly painted “conch” homes and “shotgun-style” cottages constructed in the 1800s by shipbuilder-carpenters. Winners in the North Central Region were Bay View Association, Michigan and Stillwater, Minnesota. Bay View, an 1800s Methodist camp meeting community of more than 400 small cottages, is now a charming and colorful Victorian resort designated a National Historic Landmark. Stillwater has colorful Victorian mansions built by lumber barons and a Main Street listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In the South Central Region, the winners were Old Arabi Neighborhood, St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana and Lafayette Square, St. Louis, Missouri. The former, located just five miles from New Orleans’ French Quarter, has two historic districts full of beautifully painted structures. Lafayette Square is an elegant urban neighborhood comprised of stately Victorian-era homes with fine painted detailing. The Northwest Region winners were The Victorian Village of Ferndale, California and Eureka, California. Ferndale has a nationally recognized historic business district with beautifully detailed commercial buildings and Victorian homes. Eureka is a port city 100 miles south of the Oregon border with fantastic Victorian homes built by lumber magnates. Winners in the Southwest Region were Tubac, Arizona and Manhattan Beach, California. Established in 1752 as a Spanish fort, Tubac is an exquisite, brightly painted town with more than 100 galleries and businesses lining its meandering streets. Manhattan Beach is a colorful coastal community near Los Angeles where the beautiful landscape is punctuated with artful, individualistic paint color. In addition to the 12 winners, nine other places were cited as having “exceptional merit”. They are: Cape May, New Jersey; Crested Butte, Colorado; Old Louisville, Kentucky; Ottawa and Franklin County, Kansas; Owego Historic District, New York; Paducah, Kentucky; Historic Park City, Utah; Richmond, Indiana; and Original Townsite Historic District, Victoria, Texas.

This is the third time the Paint Quality Institute has conducted a search for the prettiest painted places in America. It held the first competition in the 1990s, and another in year 2000. The purpose of the competition is to give recognition to places that use paint to express pride in their communities, and highlight how an attractive exterior paint treatment can enhance the curb appeal of virtually any home, building, or exterior structure.

TECHNICAL COMMITTEE ARTICLE Roofs, Walls, and Fenestration: Joint-Related Water, Air, Vapor, and Condensate Leakage of the Exterior Building Envelope; Part II

Canan D’Avela RA, Western Block LLC; Member CSI Phoenix Chapter Technical Committee

In the previous article of this topic as released in the June 2012 Newsletter of CSI Phoenix Chapter, we confirmed that measured temperatures on the exterior surfaces of the building envelope substantially vary from measured air temperatures. The differences may be in excess of 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Further, the annual temperature differentials of exterior surfaces of the building envelope may be in excess of 100 to 125 degrees Fahrenheit. As a result we need revisit design criteria related to expansion and contraction – including movement joints - for many exterior building elements. Let us consider different materials to put things in perspective. Material scientists are aware of the thermal expansion and contraction coefficients of numerous materials. Many plastic materials for instance calculate to move in orders of approximately 10-5 to 10-4 to in/in °F so that in 100 degrees annual change for 50 feet (600 inches) between movement joints these materials will yield approximately 3 inches to 30 inches of movement. Glass, metals (including steel and rebar), fired clay (brick, ceramics, etc.) and cementitious (concrete, concrete masonry, etc.) materials move in orders of 10-5 to 10-6 in/in °F so that in 100 degrees annual change for 50 feet between movement joints these materials will yield approximately 0.3 to 3 inches of movement. WHAT ? THAT MUCH ? Yes, that much ! But if that is true, wouldn’t we be experiencing water-leaky buildings as well as concerns for air and moisture exfiltration and infiltration ? Wouldn’t some of our joints be failing and materials ripping at times while over-compressing at other times ? And further, what can we do economically to control the expansion and contraction of materials that comprise our building elements via Design and Construction ? One means to both understand this dilemma as well as begin to control it is to join the CSI Technical Committee, currently under TJ Valdez, TJV@twenty1tec.com CSI Phoenix Chapter Technical Committee Chairman. They meet once a month. Additionally, stay tuned to Part III of this article series.
