Speaker: Heidi Lohmann

Architectural finishes are used by designers and architects around the world as a decorative material. These materials are available in a range of designs that mimic the aesthetics of natural and other materials at a fraction of the price, and offer excellent durability and performance characteristics.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify appropriate uses of architectural finishes in projects where budget and time restraints are a concern.
  2. Define expected performance characteristics for architectural finishes, such as being lightweight, non-hazardous, flexible and durable.
  3. Describe proper substrate and primer use and preparation for a proper installation.
  4. Explain the application process for a successful, lasting product, including the importance of cleaning and proper adhesion.

Learning Units will be provided: Yes (AIA/LU)
