ATAS International Inc. will be hosting Designing with Metal – Building Envelope Education, an AIA/CES education event at the Building Envelope Design Center in Mesa, Ariz. on Thursday, Feb. 9th and Friday, Feb. 10th.
In addition to four presentations by ATAS, and a plant tour of the manufacturing facility, four additional presentations will be given by other individuals in the architectural building envelope industry. Umicore Building Products USA/VMZINC, Lorin Industries, Hendrick Architectural Products, and Roofinox America will also be sharing knowledge about zinc, anodized aluminum, perforated metal, and stainless steel.
Architect members of the American Institute of Architects are required to complete 18 LUs from registered AIA/CES providers each year. Of the 18 LUs, 12 must be in the topic areas of health, safety and welfare (HSW). By attending this entire event, a total of 9.5 LUs can be earned; more than half of the annual AIA membership requirements.
Lee Ann M. Slattery, Sales Support Manager, states, “ATAS has always provided a variety of educational opportunities on a multitude of topics. Many of our staff have a long history of working within the industry and have held active roles in several of the industry-related associations, so we are fortunate to have a wide pool of experienced and respected resources from which to build valuable educational content. By hosting this education event at our Mesa, Ariz., location, we are able to provide a tour of our facility which manufactures building envelope components from metal. And, by holding the event in February, it is an ideal reason to pair the event with a warm getaway from the cold weather that many are experiencing at that time of the year.”
