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.
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.

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.
Transformations with BIM | Ford Model T Factory & Monterey Colonial Residence
Adaptive reuse and renovation projects offer the opportunity to combine old-world character with contemporary design. Such is the case with two examples we’ll review – the landmark Ford Factory building which was reimagined as Warner Music Group’s new headquarters and the repurposing of an early twentieth-century Monterey Colonial home into a residence that fuses modern indoor-outdoor living with historic charm. What both projects have in common is a technology solution that helps the design team and clients visualize the transformation of an existing building while managing the renovation process.
