  • This one hour facility tour will better inform the designer about the various “HARD” surfacing materials that are available and how they have evolved. This live course will provide a visual walking tour where individuals can actually interact with the raw materials and see how they are transformed into finished products. Integrating key sustainable concepts such as water conservation, life cycle analysis indoor air quality and sustainable materials certifications, this course will compare and contrast both the aesthetic and physical properties of the various materials with other hard surfacing materials and illustrate how these attributes can greatly affect the end user, the project, and the environmental impact.
