Presentation: Insulation Strategies in Masonry Walls Architects are putting more and more emphasis on well-insulated walls. The new International Energy Code for Conservation now requires a continuous layer of insulation in the wall assembly. This layer of rigid insulation, typically installed in the air cavity, can complicate installation of the air barrier and the masonry ties. This seminar will present several workable detail options and will teach you how to build them right. The class will also help you weigh your insulation options…for efficiency, for water repellency, for fire rating and for cost. AIA Course # RMMI2012x004

The Phoenix Chapter truly enjoyed hosting the convention this past week. It was a pleasure meeting people from across the country on the tours to DIRTT, Arcosanti and Taliesin West. I know many members enjoyed hitting the lanes at our Lucky Strike Bowling event! I would personally like to extend a heartfelt appreciation to the Phoenix Chapter Members that made up the CONSTRUCT 2012 Committee. Their hard work made the chapter event a great success, as well as the 125 volunteers we had participate throughout the week. I had the pleasure of taking part in a long standing CSI tradition- the passing of the Panic Whistle. The whistle was passed to Jim Christian, CSI, CDT, President-elect of the Nashville, Tennessee chapter. Nashville will be the host to the 57th Annual Convention, September 2013. Looking ahead to next month we have a fantastic program scheduled for October 4, 2012. We are hosting a Joint meeting with the Arizona Masonry Guild and Phoenix Brickyard . Our Guest speaker is Diane Travis, LEED AP, RMMI Technical Director who will be speaking on Insulation Strategies in Masonry Walls. Diane’s background as a teacher and an architect prepared her well for her role as masonry industry advisor, troubleshooter, and lecturer. In addition to fielding nearly 2,500 technical calls each year from design professionals and contractors, Diane conducts the Institute’s outreach services, including: masonry design presentations to architects; informal job site consultations; reviews of conceptual and detail drawings; and development of periodic literature and case studies. Diane received her Masters degree in Architecture from the University of Illinois at Chicago, 1985. In 1989, she became a registered architect in Illinois. Prior to her arrival at RMMI, Diane was a project designer with Denver’s Daniel, Mann, Johnson & Mendenhall. Before that, she spent four years with the local firm of Klipp Colussy Jenks DuBois as a job captain on such notable masonry projects as the Denver Central Library. Diane can be reached at 303-893-3838 or dianet@rmmi.org CSI also plans to celebrate “SPECtember” in September with events and messaging focused on the importance of understanding specifications and specifying. The goal of this promotion is to remind the construction community that specifications play an important role in delivering projects on time and on budget, that specifying is an important skill, and that all the construction teams are affected by the specifications. As part of this promotion, each of CSI’s Practice Groups will talk about specifications as they relate the group’s main topic. CSI will also offer a free copy of MasterFormat 2012 to new members who join in September.

SHELDON WOLFE Are Specifiers Weak in Faith? Sheldon Wolfe, RA, FCSI, CCS, CCCA, CSC

Because of a CSI Specifiers Practice Group discussion in a couple of weeks, I'm moving this subject forward; we'll get back to changes in contract documents later. About a hundred years ago, when AIA produced the document that eventually would become the familiar A201, much more work was done in the field. Reference standards had yet to be developed, and industry organizations did not yet offer the industry standards that are common today. And, because the architect was in control of the project, specifications were required to tell the contractor all that had to be done. Since then, a lot has changed. We now have countless codes, industry standards, and references standards, which, together, set minimum requirements for just about everything. Much more work is fabricated off site, in controlled factory conditions, making today's materials and products far more reliable and consistent than they were a century ago. We often hear about the great quality of bygone days, and there is some truth to that, but the reality is that today's work is generally superior. All of these things suggest specifications should be shorter, and I believe that to be true. However, specifications are longer than ever, and seem to grow with each new version. The main reason is redundancy, a result of the specifier's lack of faith in the documents we use. Let's start with the conditions of the contract, specifically the AIA documents, probably the most commonly used. Other general conditions are used, but they often are similar to those published by AIA. Read what is said about the responsibilities of the architect and of the contractor. In essence, the architect is responsible for showing what the building should look like, and what materials should be used where, and the contractor is responsible for pretty much everything else. Note there is nothing that requires the architect to tell the contractor, or manufacturer, or installer how to do their jobs. In fact, it states "The contractor shall be solely responsible for and have control over construction means, methods, techniques, sequences, and procedures and for coordinating all portions of the Work‌" This makes sense; the contractor knows more about how to run a job, the manufacturers know more about their products, and the installers know more about their work than the architect can possibly understand. So why do specifications delve so deeply into these matters? Why do they tell the contractor how to schedule, how to install, and how to coordinate? There are good reasons for some of this. For example, it may be that part of a project has to be done first, to allow the owner to move from one area to another, but beyond that, it is the contractor's job to figure out what gets done when. In addition to the conditions of the contract, we have Division 01, which, properly used, can eliminate many of the requirements commonly found in specifications.

In Division 01, we specify those things that apply to everything: selection of materials, storage, handling, installation, following manufacturers' instructions, compliance with standards, acceptance of conditions, and so on. With just those basic requirements, we're well on the way to reducing the length of specifications. It requires faith, but it is logical, defensible, and enforceable. The basic rule is, if it's in the conditions or Division 01, take it out of the section. Think of it as "specification by exception." Rely on the documents, and all you need to worry about is how what you want differs from the standards or the manufacturers' instructions. Part 1: Use "related work" as intended, a way to help the reader find something that normally would be expected in this section but is not. Part 2: Remove substitution requirements. If you have specific products in mind, state what they are. If you're open to competitive products, specify the performance. Don't specify those things that are not essential, and may not be the same for all products. Part 3: Unless you know more about installation than the manufacturer and the installer, there isn't much to say, except for quality control requirements. Know your reference standards. If you specify insulation as ASTM C578, Type IV, there is no need to go on and specify the thermal resistance, compressive strength, water absorption, or vapor permeance. On the other hand, if the standard you are using has options, be sure to indicate which are required. When you specify more than necessary, you enter into the "means and methods" area, and, in so doing, you assume the contractor's responsibility. If something goes wrong, the contractor can say, "I did what I was told" and you're on the hook. With faith in the documents, it should be possible to specify almost anything in half a page (at least for architectural products, though I suspect mechanical and electrical specifications also can be reduced). Using roofing as an example, if I state the wind loads, the required fire-resistive rating, the type of membrane, applicable standards, required options, warranty, and field quality control requirements, what else do I have to say? The manufacturer's instructions cover all the related materials, and how it gets installed. Here's where the exception part comes in; if the manufacturer's standard flashing height is four inches, but I want eight, I say that. The result? Easy to write, easy to bid, easy to enforce.

This article was shared by Arizona Builder’s Exchange “We’ve got 47 cottage industries right here in Chandler just as a result of Intel,” Mayor Jay Tibshraeny says with a great deal of pride. For many, the term “cottage industry” brings pictures of a couple of guys in the garage building prototypes or a part-time mom-based business building equity while the kids nap. That’s not Chandler’s picture of a cottage industry. Picture the shimmering white tanks and towers along Loop 101 just north of Loop 202—Air Products, that’s a Chandler cottage industry. Mayor Jay

Picture the combined 50K SF of Chandler and ASU Innovation Centers or the new AKO Tibshraeny engineering design offices. Those are Chandler cottage industries. Bioscience, technology and secure mobile are just some of the business categories directly connected to Intel. “Six businesses on the Price Corridor,” says the Mayor, “opened solely for the purpose of delivering services to Intel.” Economic Growth Surrounds Intel Chandler’s largest employer kicked off last week with an announcement of its latest development: a 285K SF, $300M research and development center on the West Chandler campus. Construction is still ongoing for the $5.2B Fab42 facility. Chandler and Intel officials will not confirm, but sources tell AZBEX there are reports floating about an Ocotillo Campus administrative complex or mirror-imaged Fab42-2 to start sometime after Intel’s DX-1 facility is completed in Hillsboro, Ore. in 2013. Economic conditions will dictate actual start dates. “Six businesses on the Price Corridor opened solely for the purpose of delivering services to Intel.” Mayor Jay Tibshraeny Chandler says Intel spins off three to four additional Valley jobs for each employee it hires. “We’re looking ahead to a solid future for our citizens,” explained Mayor Tibshraeny. “We can see our ultimate buildout, and we know that once it gets close, we need to focus on infill and redevelopment. Our vision is to put in place a solid economic development base.” The person charged with that responsibility, Economic Development Director Christine Mackay, is one of the most respected leaders in the field in Arizona. Booked in meetings from the moment she walks in the door at the new Chandler city hall until late in the day, Mackay juggles downtown development opportunities, business retention and business recruitment. Chandler Innovation Center Grows New Businesses “We’re really proud of the Innovation Center,” she says. “We’ve got a number of companies in there growing and developing, and it’s time for us to come up with some ‘teenager space.’” With a 24 to 36 month timeline for business incubation, Mackay is looking for a transition to help businesses move out from the city-supported offices at the center and into the normal business world.

“Our incubating businesses find themselves surprised at the costs of running an office,” she explains. “We provide the basic support—copiers, conference rooms, technological infrastructure. Once they outgrow incubation, they are responsible for those costs and there’s a degree of sticker shock when a business is in between the Innovation Center and profitability.” “Incubating businesses ready to grow out of the incubator find sticker shock with the cost of setting up their own offices.” Christine Mackay Christine Mackay

“We call these the ‘teenagers,’ and we’re evolving the concept of transitional space for growth. We’re seeing some of our major business developers stepping into this concept,” echoes the mayor. “Several major business centers in the Price Corridor have indicated an interest in providing support for fledgling businesses coming out of the incubator.” Chandler Freeway Crossing, Red Rock Business Center, Allred’s Park Place, and Mark IV Capital are among those who have stepped into this unique market. “We need to have places for these businesses to grow because incubated businesses already have roots in the community and should not need to move elsewhere for expansion,” says Mackay. Combined with Chandler’s Innovation Center, ASU extended its Polytechnic campus into its Chandler College of Technology and Innovation as an engineering and technology-based education and research center. Located downtown, 249 E. Chicago St., between Chandler Blvd. and Frye Rd., the center scored another coup with the inclusion of the new TechShop workshop chain developing a site inside the facility. This is the first of a three part series from an August 15 th conversation between AZBEX publisher Rebekah Morris and Senior Correspondent Eric Jay Toll with Mayor Tibshraeny and Economic Development Director Christine Mackay in the Mayor’s conference room at Chandler City Hall. Part 2 publishes on August 24 th, Part 3 on August 28th, focusing on Chandler’s Downtown Core, and then a study of individual properties in downtown Chandler, both city-owned and those controlled by private entities.

CODE CORNER Construction Documents Revisited By: Ronald L. Geren, AIA, CSI, CCS, CCCA, SCIP

The topic of construction documents was addressed in a previous article of The Code Corner1. However, the message of that article was the broad subject of construction documents by building code definition and did not broach methods of how to actually communicate code-related information in the documents. This article and a companion article in RLGA’s Keynotes2 series will expand on the previous Code Corner article by introducing methods to better communicate building code compliance within the drawings and specifications.

WHAT CAN WE LEARN ABOUT PAINT COLOR FROM “PRETTIEST PAINTED PLACES IN AMERICA� Originally published by Paint Quality Institute Submitted by Tim Garver, CSI, CDT, LEED AP, Dunn Edwards

The Paint Quality Institute periodically searches for the prettiest painted communities in America. By looking at the towns and neighborhoods that have won top honors in its "Prettiest Painted Places in America" competitions, we can all learn a lot about exterior paint color selection. The winning communities are often very different from each other. Past winners have come from every part of the country, and they've run the gamut from historical towns to sparkling new, planned communities. They do, however, have one thing in common: All of the communities take great pride in their appearance. Some go so far as to specify or regulate the exterior color palette. Whether exterior paint colors are specified or not, virtually all of the past "winners" have been awash in color. Homeowners and business owners in most of the places embraced color as a decorative medium. They knew intuitively that colorful painted exteriors added curb appeal and helped make their communities special. Perhaps there are tips we can take from these communities to make our own homes a "prettiest painted place". A common characteristic of homes and buildings in the winning places was the way they made the most of their architecture. In many cases, different surfaces and architectural elements were painted in different colors to make the details stand out. The use of multiple colors was commonplace. Color schemes often employed not just two or three colors, but four, five, and more. The complex palettes gave texture to the architecture and celebrated the details. There was also fearlessness about paint color, which might be expected in the beachfront towns. But even inland, understated color schemes were frequently punched up with a bold accent color or two. What can we learn from these beautiful places? That color is a powerful way to enhance the appearance of any structure. We have to paint for maintenance purposes anyway, so why not create something special with our color scheme? The next time you plan to paint the exterior of your home or business, take a long, hard look at the exterior. Are there ways to highlight its interesting architectural elements? What if you used four paint colors instead of just two or three? How else can paint color help embellish the exterior? These are some of the questions you should ask yourself. And, don't be overwhelmed by the many paint colors available today. You don't have to go it alone when creating an exterior color scheme. Check out the literature at your local paint store and you'll find beautiful colorcoordinated palettes that can serve as guides. Some paint companies even have color "visualizers" that let you see how different color schemes would look on your home or business. By the way, after a 12-year hiatus, the Paint Quality Institute is in the process of conducting another competition to find the "Prettiest Painted Places in America" right now. You can follow the search on blog.paintquality.com, where you'll see which communities are in the running... and, in October, which are chosen as the country's 12 most beautiful painted places!
