AIA offers course on sustainable materials in restrooms and locker rooms

AIAThe AIA Continuing Education course entitled “Sustainable Materials in Restrooms, Locker Rooms and Other Applications” is designed for architects and designers in commercial markets. The course will cover the sustainable attributes and benefits of HDPE materials in the design and construction of bathroom and locker projects. Scranton Products leads the industry as a manufacturer of plastic bathroom partitions and lockers.

Sponsored by Scranton Products, the course will also explain how High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) reduces environmental impact and offers improvements to the indoor air quality of any project. Examples of how responsible manufacturing is a critical part of any products life cycle assessment will be discussed. Participants can earn 1.0 AIA HSW/SD CE hour and 1.0 GBCI CE hour for LEED professionals.

Using Powerpoint, the course is guided by a Scranton Products facilitator. It is suitable for audiences of any size and is limited only by the space available at each venue. And, there is no cost to bring this program into an architectural firm or chapter meeting.

Recognizing that continuing education is crucial for architects to stay ahead in their professions, Scranton Products has developed AIA-certified courses on key industry topics that help fulfill membership requirements of 18 CEU hours per year.

Additional courses online include: “Introduction to Barrier Free Design and ADA Standards for Accessible Design,” a web-based self-study course for 1.00 AIA HSW CE Hour on RonBlank.Com and “School Hallway Lockers Made of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)” for 1.00 HSW/SD Hour in the Architectural Record’s Continuing Education Center.
