Durability by Design CEU Webinar

Science teaches us that matter moves from order to disorder. Amazingly, the same thing can happen to buildings! What was once sparkling and new can eventually slide into disrepair. Building owners could simply surrender to it, or they can proactively take a stand and fight for their buildings. They can choose products that protect the interior from damage in the first place. Architects and interior designers can also slow the hands of time by thinking long term and specifying door and wall protection products…to not only preserve their design, but also as a service to building owners long after the ribbon is cut.

During this webinar you will learn:

  • Explore how the proper installation of wall protection products - when specified with standard wall construction options - determines their effectiveness in interior applications.
  • Recognize when to specify wall cladding v. targeted wall protection.
  • Examine the best-practice options for achieving effective and aesthetically pleasing interior protection.
  • Discover strategies to successfully design for the long term by avoiding the trap of first-cost value engineering.
