Program Description

*Zoom* Design Innovation using Fiber Cement in Residential Construction

The use of fiber cement cladding once used mainly in commercial projects is gaining prominence in residential design as well. Join us to learn more about the possibilities that this type of product gives to the Architect in the design of single family homes and other residential projects.

The design of buildings requires that high performance becomes married with great aesthetics. Increasingly, both must be done while containing the material, labor, and installation costs of products used. One very visible and increasingly important area that has received a lot of attention in all of these regards is exterior cladding. While many different choices abound with varying degrees of weight, thickness, and ease of installation one product has emerged as a very appealing solution in many cases. Architectural Wall Panels made from fiber cement have a proven history of allowing architects to create building exteriors that are innovative, affordable, sustainable, and able to create a variety of aesthetic design appearances.

Advance registration required. Register before 5pm on October 19 to receive Zoom info.
