CSI Knoxville's August Meeting, Tuesday, August 11, 2020
Fri, Jul 31 2020


Grab your favorite lunch meal and Join CSI Knoxville on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 as Shannon Yust presents information on Modified Acetylated Wood (acetylated) pine wood source that can be utilized in many different exterior applications, including decking, window framing, doors, cladding, poles, bollards and outdoor furniture. It has been altered on a molecular level enough that it takes on properties that make it resistant to decay and insect attack, and it comes with a 25-year warranty from both, even if buried in ground. The main learning objectives of the AIA presentation on Acetylated Wood include the following:


*Define the term "Acetylated Wood" and gain a basic understanding of its history.

*Learn the benefits of the acetylation process, and why it is a safe, nontoxic alternative to other materials.

*Describe how wood used in acetylated wood is a natural renewable resource and qualifies for LEED points.

*Review global projects - learn why acetylated wood is used in the historical preservation market and various other applications.

CSI Holiday Celebration at Ramsey House
Tue, Dec 03 2019

The CSI Family came together at the historic Ramsey House for a candlelight tour and holiday dinner. About 40 members and guests gathered to hear the minstrels entertain us with holiday tunes, enjoyed a wonderful dinner provided by Big Fatty's Catering (thank you Lisa!), and were led through the Ramsey home by docents dressed in period garb. A fascinating evening with good friends, where we learned a bit more about the history of our area. Members brought unwrapped toys to donate to Toys for Tots that Kathy had the honor of delivering to the Marine base on Alcoa Hwy. They were very grantful for this tradition that had started with the Knoxville CSI President Curtis Rosenbaum in 1996. Thanks from all of us go to Will Dunklin who arranged this wonderful evening and to all who worked hard to decorate and stock the Christmas Cheer beverages.
