CE|STRONG, a continuing education platform hosted by The Architect’s Newspaper and AN Interior offers AIA-approved courses on an online platform easily accessed from both computers and mobile devices.

The leading interior and exterior product manufacturers lead our courses; ranging from the design and detailing of insulated metal wall panels to the high-performance benefits of laminated glass, amongst many other subjects. All of our courses are approved AIA Learning Units—some count towards HSW credits—and will provide a certificate of completion following the workshop.

Workshops

AN’s CE|Strong workshops reach practitioners and manufacturers across the continental United States to bring cutting-edge materials and tech solutions to bear on local challenges. The CEU-accredited workshops are organized thematically, spanning interior applications to building envelopes, and range in duration from one hour to a full day. Expert instructors oversee each workshop, guiding attendees toward a greater understanding of how to balance design aims with efficient material use.

Conferences

For more than a decade, AN has successfully programmed hundreds of live conferences, connecting thousands of leading professionals in the process. Unmatched in their depth of knowledge and scope of engagement, these events aggregate expert panels, workshops, and product expos, not to mention networking opportunities. And in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, AN has seamlessly pivoted its signature Facades+ and Tech+ series online, while also expanding its offerings. New to this conference roster is Mass Timber, which already promises to be a tentpole industry event as the material gains wider application in the years ahead.

Advancements in Cladding Support Systems. Design + Performance.

How cladding is attached and supported from the exterior of the wall assembly to the interior structure of the building is no longer just a question of transferring weight. The type of support system used can greatly affect energy performance, air and moisture penetration into the wall cavity, and the effectiveness of the finished design.

Over the last ten years cladding support systems have advanced to address the needs of modern buildings, to meet new code requirements and avoid the causes of issues inside the wall cavity as we learn more about how to select products that work well together – from both a performance and constructability standpoint.

This course walks through the various types of newer cladding support systems on the market today with a goal to help bring more value to the design and product selection process and subsequently to the occupants of new and restored buildings for the future.

Energy and the Architectural Fenestration Industry

This course is designed to show the advantages of aluminum extrusion use in many architectural designs, from curtainwall to windows and doors, as well as railings and walkway covers, and will inspire limitless design opportunities for architects and engineers.

Achieving Performance and Aesthetics with Engineered Building Enclosure Solutions

This course presents a unique approach to designing for performance while achieving aesthetic goals, focusing on engineered systems that provide continuous control layers and connectivity between multiple claddings, and resulting in simplified design and construction processes.

Spinach Ice-Cream for Architects – How to Have Fun while Keeping Your Firm Healthy

Who doesn’t love design? It’s like a bottomless bowl of chocolate ice-cream.

Just like our bodies can’t survive merely on sweet desserts, your firm needs vegetables and protein too.

Most firms struggle with maintaining the proper balance between the fun side of our practice and the necessary effort to keep a firm running smoothly: managing projects and staff, keeping the cash flowing (more in than out), acquiring new business, on-and-on.

Join us for an engaging, live webinar presented by Steve Burns, FAIA, Chief Creative Officer at BQE Software. You will see how easy it is to finally bring balance to your firm by applying the same care and design to firm management as you do your projects.

Cloud computing is transforming firms like yours and how the rules of the game have been upended.

AEC Professionals are from Mars and Owners are from Venus

As the title would suggest, what owners want (need) out of their BIM is worlds away from what the architects, engineers and contractors need to build the owner’s building.
