Parkinson's Law states work expands to fill the time available for its completion. In other words, if you spend too much time thinking, you'll never get the work done. LG Hausys sponsors continuing education program to help architects meet their annual state requirements. Run against the clock by filling your spare time with learning – otherwise still a good read. Good luck.

Available courses

  • COURSE 1. C2G Evaluation of Solid Surface Maufacture AIACES9116HSW, CEU-107429
    COURSE DESCRIPTION

    Solid surface is no longer considered a "luxury" material. Environmentally-sensitive manufacturing facilities and processes, together with unequaled performance properties and life-cycle attributes deliver sustainable value. The design community appreciates this unique combination of practicality, performance, and aesthetic flexibility.

    C2G EVALUATION of Solid Surface Manufacture is now the only AIA CES Approved offering available.
    LEARNING OBJECTIVES
    • Understand and evaluate a manufacturer's stewardship of natural resources (energy, water, atmosphere) for solid surface "sheet" and "shape" supply chain, manufacturing, distribution, fabrication, and in situ performance characteristics, including any end-of-life-cycle considerations.
    • Understand the various environmental review and rating criteria that are applicable when design professionals consider various surfacing materials options for both horizontal and vertical interior installations.
    • Understand the environmental impact of fabrication materials and methods that transform "Sheet" and "Shape" material into finished products for both commercial and non-commercial applications. Understand how the design flexibility of solid surface contributes to the well-being of the end user.
    • Understand the low-impact techniques and materials utilized for the care, maintenance, repair, and restoration of installed solid surface products including categories of products, their suitability for use in interior spaces, and beneficial impact on delivering life-cycle value including end-of-life disposal.

  • COURSE 3. Solidly Sustainable SSLG062618, CEU-107507
    COURSE DESCRIPTION

    Acrylic solid surface has been valued for its exceptional versatility, durability, and unique ability to be formed into almost unlimited shapes. We will discuss the process of thermoforming and fabricating solid surface material and evaluate its design potential. Three case studies will be examined from concept and visualization through design and fabrication.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES
    • Identify the national standards and certifications, including life-cycle sustainability and GreenGuard, that can be earned by solid surfacing products.
    • Examine the composition of solid surfacing and the characteristics that make it a sustainable products.
    • Describe how manufacturers of solid surface products can limit and even improve their impact on the environment.
    • Explore the process of thermoforming and how solid surface materials were applied in three case studies.
