LOS ANGELES, CA - November 12, 2014 - C.R. Laurence and its family of trusted brands has positioned itself as a leading manufacturer among glass and glazing professionals. Now, CRL is providing the architecture community with more dedicated continuing education courses, resources, and initiatives that promote and emphasize personal and industry-wide growth. In addition to partnering with The American Institute of Architects (AIA) on their Continuing Education System (CES) for practicing architects and other nationwide CRL-exclusive programs, CRL-U.S. Aluminum is collaborating with Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University's (Virginia Tech) design/buildLAB program to connect with architecture students and professors (practicing architects) by extending its extensive resources, expertise, and products.
CRL-U.S. Aluminum's Jim Conte was challenged with designing a special AIA Continuing Education (CEU) course curriculum for a select group of design/buildLAB architecture students. This unique course covered fenestration systems and their structural considerations, design criteria, engineering, benefits, and applications in modern architecture and design.
"Training and supporting the industry's next generation of leading architects is nothing short of rewarding," says Jim Conte CSI, CDT, Architectural Sales Representative at CRL-U.S. Aluminum. "We are going the extra mile to provide architects, designers, and now students with the education, information, and tools they need to complete successful, highly collaborative commercial and residential projects. It is important for us to continue to advise and collaborate with the architecture and design community at all levels."
