Learn about how you can utilize a sustainable alternative wall system for your next project.

As regions of the United States endure weather related disasters such as earthquakes, wildfires, tornadoes, and hurricanes, traditional building methods such as wood and metal-stud framing often cannot withstand the severity of these events. This devastation leaves residents with nothing but rubble to return to. Alternative wall systems such as straw bale construction, insulated concrete form blocks, and Tridipanels™ not only have proven to be able to withstand harsh climate conditions more often than traditional framing. They also integrate recycled and sustainable materials that typically provide better insulation and reduced energy consumption. Learn the many advantages of these materials, methods of construction as well as the benefits of other natural building materials such as earthen plasters, rammed earth, and adobe construction.

Learning Objectives

• You will be able to describe green building key concepts.

• You will be able to identify and provide examples of wall systems such as earthen plaster and rammed earth.

• You will be able to discuss the benefits and durability of straw bale, especially in fire-susceptible areas.

• You will be able to explain the construction process and benefits of insulated composite concrete forms and Tridipanels, how they are not only used for design versatility, but also to withstand intense weather patterns.
