Plan It
A New Approach to Live Education
Looking back, 2020 wasn’t all bad. COVID forced us to stay home, and it simplified our calendars. Communication and events were (and still are) solely online. And, we all had time to reflect on what’s most important in our lives. What do we really want to add back into our world? What’s working and what can we improve?

When it comes to architect education, the live webcasts last year allowed us to collect invaluable feedback from our participants. The same questions were asked consistently. Some include:

Does this product have a fire rating?

What’s the life of the product? How long is the warranty?

Would you describe the proper installation to prevent moisture penetration?

What STC rating is most appropriate for my project?

Is this course valid for USGBC credit? Does it contribute to LEED credit?

With such tremendous feedback, we realized that our course delivery could be refined. Why not organize our full-day, live seminars around those subjects that are most important to architects? Attendees should want to attend the seminar based on the building solution or building type…not just to complete the credits for their license.

With COVID, we were given the gift of reflection, and we’re excited to kick-off our new approach to architect education. And, we hope to continue our in-person, city-based seminars later in the year too (fingers crossed).

Happy New Year!
