HBS Nano Courses on Architectural Record

The Woodlands, TX (April 13, 2021) – Huntsman Building Solutions, a global leader in high performance, sustainable building envelope solutions, today announced the launch of two new courses for design professionals. The continuing education offerings, Spray Polyurethane Foam as a Continuous Insulation (CI) Solution and Improving Roof Performance with Spray Foam Insulation, are both available through Architectural Record magazine’s Continuing Education Center. Each course is a nano-credit offering, providing participants who complete one with 0.5 CEU credits.

“Huntsman Building Solutions is dedicated to providing quality education that both matches and ensures the highest performance of our products,” says Doug Brady, vice president of global innovation and product management for Huntsman Building Solutions. “These mobile-friendly, on-demand courses are designed to provide knowledge pertinent to two of the most important topics relative to spray polyurethane foam and give architects the opportunity to continue their education while they are working from home or sitting anywhere from a parking lot to a waiting room.”

The first offering, Spray Polyurethane Foam as Continuous (CI) Insulation, provides instruction and knowledge surrounding the attributes, benefits and advantages of closed-cell spray foam when it is applied as CI. Upon completion of this course, architects will be able to define both types of foam insulation products – spray polyurethane foam (SPF) and rigid foam board – utilized for exterior CI project application; understand the installation and performance advantages of SPF versus rigid foam board; investigate the use of SPF to achieve multiple performance traits in one product including thermal, air and water resistance; and recognize the installed cost advantages of SPF as compared to rigid foam board.

The second offering, Improving Roof Performance with Spray Foam Insulation, provides an overview of the thermal performance benefits of spray foam roofing as well as specific applications for the material. Participants in this course will learn how spray foam differs from traditional roof products; the key benefits of specifying spray foam roofing for new construction; performance attributes of the solution and why it makes sense to recover roofs with spray foam; and the importance of certified and well-trained installers.

Both courses are available free of charge to architects and are registered with AIA CES for continuing professional education. Credits earned upon completion of each course will be reported to AIA CES for AIA members. Certificates of completion for both AIA members and non-members are available upon request.
