If in a typical kitchen the surface is only a top layer that covers the kitchen units, in this course, we would like to propose the surface as the core of the kitchen which holds the different elements together in quite an unexpected way. An excellent opportunity to experiment with common areas like kitchens and bathrooms. We always strive towards the alternative, the humoristic and still question the traditional approach to design.
This course will serve as an introduction to quartz surfacing and provide you with basic knowledge about this building product. It will discuss the quartz manufacturing process, key specification decisions and common fabrication issues to consider. This course will also touch on sustainability properties of quartz and the general industry trends.
Designing With Surface Materials To Reinforce Key Trends Shaping Hospitality Interiors (Print Course)
This CEU will connect designers with the ways in which surface materials can help them respond to and reinforce hospitality trends through design, durability, and availability.
We will explore trends impacting the hospitality industry, the performance attributes and applications of various surface materials, and how these materials can be used to improve design in high-trend hospitality spaces.
This course will discuss High-Performance Surfaces for Bath and Kitchen, Basic Types of Polymer Surfaces, Compression-Molded Solid Surface Product Uses & Comparisons, Compression-Molded Solid Surface Applications, What to Look for When Specifying, and Maintenance Features. You will also learn about the processes used for manufacturing these products, how to describe these next-generation materials to clients, and designing kitchens and bathrooms for increased durability and sustainability.
Material selection is one of the most important choices you will make to the overall outcome of your construction projects. Understanding how different material options impact your bottom line leads to better informed decision-making.
This course highlights the advantages that durable, non-combustible, low-maintenance materials and finishes bring to your projects, why architectural and decorative concrete is the smart choice for buildings and floors, and why concrete is a sustainable option.
This course covers the fundamentals of quartz surfacing including its performance attributes vs. alternative products and typical applications. The course provides an overview of the production, testing and quality-assurance processes in the quartz surfacing industry. This will include an explanation of the supply chain and route to market, from raw material to the end consumer or project, as well as best practices in fabrication and installation of quartz surfacing.
Find out why so many quality-minded contractors have made Surecrete their supplier of choice. We've pulled together the Top 10 reasons.
This course will demonstrate how engineered quartz surfaces can be used in a variety of commercial settings to achieve superior design quality and functionality. The use of engineered quartz in design projects is rising due to its unique properties, sustainable manufacturing process, and wide range of application uses.
First, students will learn about the differences between engineered quartz and other solid surfaces, examples of commercial applications, and common usage challenges. Then, the design benefits of engineered quartz and its role in sustainable design will be discussed. Finally, this course will examine best practices for incorporating engineered quartz into commercial projects.
