Course Description

This course covers a range of concepts, including a discussion of the steps required for the roof consultant to successfully evaluate an existing roof and to make decisions regarding roof design using available references, resources, and evaluation techniques. Speakers will present a review of reroof options and decision-making principles, building code considerations, reroof considerations, and examples of roof systems. Proper preparation of plans and specifications is presented to clarify the delivery of these documents. The roles of the stakeholders in the bid process are discussed.  This course examines the elements required to properly execute meetings, project site visits, design resolutions, and project closeout.  This course is designed for building consultants, architects, and engineers who regularly engage in the renovation of existing buildings (schools, office buildings, industrial buildings, etc.).
