Presented by Echelon Masonry

Join us bi-weekly for AIA-accredited webinars on modern solutions to the most pressing challenges in architecture, presented by experts from across the industry. From specification support to site planning to strategies to optimize the health and wellness of your occupants and beyond, APG U sessions offer up knowledge you need to succeed – and the LU and HSW credits you need to stay current.

Check out the current block of webinars below:

January 21, 1:00pm ET: Public Safety & Access Issues for Concrete Pavers(1LU|HSW)

  • 混凝土是迄今为止美国人行道和人行道的最常见的路面材料,但由于其独特的好处,混凝土摊铺机正在迅速获得规格份额。但是,这些材料需要额外的知识,以确保公共安全和可访问性设计考虑因素被考虑。

    Join industry experts from Oldcastle APG as we dive into paver safety topics including current ADA criteria, slip resistance standards, test methods, permeable pavement solutions, and traffic calming and more – giving you all of the knowledge you need to successfully spec ADA-Compliant pavers walkways.


  • Mitigating water intrusion in buildings is priority one for effective building design, but remains a challenge for even the most experienced architects and builders. Identifying the key threat areas – including roofs, cladding systems, penetrations, foundations and more is step one, mitigating them is step two.

    在本次会议中,来自施工科学与工程公司的法医工程师德里克·洪都将通过对典型建筑问题进行深度审查,导致水侵入,加上解决这些问题所需的适当细节和维修 - 从简单到严重,加入我们深入了解您可以申请的下一个项目的成功水分缓解策略的理论和现实世界应用。

February 18, 1:00pm ET: Balancing Health & Performance Benefits Through Natural Lighting(1LU|HSW)

  • 广泛的研究已经证明了日光对建筑性和乘员健康的积极影响,包括生理,健康和心理健康,除了大量的节能之外。

    加入Oldcastle Building Envelope的行业专家,因为我们潜入热处理,层压和绝缘玻璃及其应用的性质,以及了解玻璃设计如何用于管理建筑能源,改善ROI并彻底改变健康和健康of your buildings’ occupants.


  • Concrete masonry is one of the oldest building materials known to man, and one with humble manufacturing origins. While low-tech block manufacturing still takes place around the world, today’s modern plants are capable of staggering output with unrivaled precision, flexibility and speed.

    Join us for a virtual tour of one of Oldcastle’s state-of-the-art block plants as we review the quality control practices and procedures of manufactured concrete products and follow the steps from the arrival of the aggregates, to the initial mixing stages and through the production process.

    The tour will address the proper manufacturing techniques needed to meet the required fire resistance, energy efficiencies and overall sustainable qualities of CMUs – helping you know exactly what goes into the products that you’re specifying for your next high-performance project.
