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.

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.

Designing interiors requires an excellent grasp of aesthetics, code, and safety, particularly at a time when health concerns are at their peak. AN’s CE|STRONG Interior workshops will provide participants with the know-how to meet these and other challenges head-on. Over four IDCEC-accredited workshops, experts will lead tutorials on the most recent material strategies and product innovations in the world of interiors, highlighting applications in workplace, kitchen and bath, surfaces, and lighting contexts.

AN presents "Detailing Interiors" on June 29, 2022. More information coming soon.

AN’s Live Webinars reach you wherever you are. Easily accessed from any device, each interactive webinar delivers the latest in building products, with an onhand expert to walk attendees through all potential applications.

Have a question about a product’s suitability for your site or project? Wondering about its compatibility across building systems? Go to the source for the answers.

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.

Integrating BIM & Spec Design Processes

Specifiers and designers have envisioned an integrated design process for decades. Separate design processes for modeling and specifications require higher levels of collaboration and time, while inevitably introducing errors. These errors and omissions can cause 5-10% or more of the project cost, a perception of poor quality in the design, delays in operations, and more.

The DEFs of Roller Shade Fabric

This course gives designers and architects a refresher on the ABCs of roller shade fabric before moving into the DEFs; Design considerations, Enhancing acoustical performance, and finally, Fenestration, as each relates to roller shade fabric.

Intelligent Window and Vent Automation Technology for Natural Ventilation

An automated window/vent façade can provide a wide range of benefits to a building design, such as, ADA compliance and integration with a fire life safety system for smoke exhaust, but here we will specifically be discussing the application of using the automated façade to provide a natural/hybrid ventilation system.

How to Save Hours on Measuring and Modeling Existing Conditions with Canvas

Any remodeling project typically starts with the tedious tasks of capturing field measurements and existing conditions and then modeling the as-built space in your design program of choice. This error-prone process saps you of time and energy better spent reimaging the space.

Designing Automated Shading Systems

In this course, you will learn to identify the impact automated window shading can have on building design, be able to design for the aesthetic requirements of a building, and create occupant well-being (comfort) through automated shading design. This course will help identify the main approaches to automation design to understand what drives cost and technology for the specification of automated systems.
