The Los Angeles Chapter of the Indoor Air Quality Association is pleased to announce our quarterly morning workshop on April 24. Educational units may be earned by attending this workshop (ABIH, IAQA).

“Assessing structures from the Turn of the Century to Present Day” will cover the type of structure our industry or related industry encounter on a regular basis. Although many of the structure are constructed of much different material and were designed to operate much different than we some time think. The idea of this presentation is to help you be more aware of reasons structure fail or resist failure as well as reasons why failure may occur after a major upgrade of an older structure.

Presentation will cover structure types, material used, built methods, heating systems, slab on grade, raised foundations, building Science effect, moisture and air travel trough structure, environmental affects to the structure types, etc.
