PRESENTER: Michael Mrowka.
TOPIC: AC Solar Technology - Advanced Applications.
OVERVIEW: This presentation will cover the latest in solar technology and upcoming rules and regulation changes (by Energex, Ergon and Electrical Safety Commission.) which will affect the design, specification and integration of solar technology on new and existing buildings.
LEARNING OUTCOMES: To understand and identify the difference between DC and AC solar systems. Learn the latest in upcoming Solar Electrical Standards. Learn how to calculate actual solar yield and the difference between kW peak system rating and total kWh production. Understand how Solar products need to be designed for regulatory changes and how they address the ongoing issues of safety, reporting, space requirements and correct orientation.
PRESENTERS: Craig Forsyth & Stefan Bader.
TOPIC: Design & Documentation of James Hardie Systems Ritek pre-fabricated structural wall systems.
OVERVIEW: James Hardie Systems Ritek Wall Systems are pre-fabricated permanent formwork panel systems, quick and easy to install with a pre-finished substrate ready for your finishing trades. The James Hardie Systems Ritek Thermal Wall Systems offer an attractive, cost effective alternative to conventional masonry block, precast concrete and insitu building methods. The systems use rust free aluminium componentry and provide high thermal and fire ratings, on a range of projects from multi-storied residential to commercial and residential projects.
LEARNING OUTCOMES: Understanding pre-fabricated structural wall systems. Selecting the correct product for the application. Benefits which should be considered prior to specifying. Benefits offered by pre-fabricated structural wall systems. Certification, compliance and warranty considerations.
PRESENTERS: Alison Sayce & Sharneil Shapland.
TOPIC: Watermark, WELS and Non-conforming Building Products.
OVERVIEW: As a specifier, what do you need to know about selecting a product that is a "conforming product"? What legislation will protect you? Have you heard about the Chain of Responsibility? How do you handle requests for substitutions?
LEARNING OUTCOMES: Do you recognise a Watermark and know how to interpret it? What is WELS and why is it important?
