Finishing Gypsum Board: Appearance and Indoor Air Quality

Finishing Gypsum Board: Appearance and Indoor Air Quality

to take this course

In this course, we explore sound transmission and acoustical requirements in buildings. Codes, standards, and design considerations are thoroughly reviewed. Acoustically enhanced gypsum board assemblies are evaluated as a solution for improving acoustics in multiple indoor environments.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Identify the significance of ASTM C840, "The Standard Specification for Application and Finishing of Gypsum Board."
  2. Discern the differences between the "Five Levels of Finish" (GA-214-10), and explain the terms and operations associated with each level
  3. Assess the ways that interior gypsum board finishing applications meet sustainable design criteria for indoor air quality
  4. Define the ways that interior gypsum board finishing contributes to an Indoor Air Quality Management Plan
  5. Determine appropriate gypsum board products to specify so a project meets or exceeds sustainable design standards
