ATAS To Host Winter Educational Retreat In Mesa, Arizona

atas-sustainable-building-envelope-technology-logoMesa, AZ - ATAS International Inc., a leading manufacturer of metal roofing, wall and ceiling panels, will be hosting “Designing with Metal - Building Envelope Education”, an AIA/CES education event at the Building Envelope Design Center in Mesa, Arizona, February 9 - 10, 2017.

In addition to four presentations by ATAS, and a plant tour of the manufacturing facility, four additional presentations will be given by other individuals in the architectural building envelope industry. Umicore Building Products USA/VMZINC, Lorin Industries, Hendrick Architectural Products, and Roofinox America will also be sharing knowledge about zinc, anodized aluminum, perforated metal, and stainless steel.

aia-continuing-education-logoArchitect members of the American Institute of Architects are required to complete 18 LUs from registered AIA/CES providers each year. Of the 18 LUs, 12 must be in the topic areas of health, safety and welfare (HSW). By attending this entire event, a total of 9.5 LUs can be earned; more than half of the annual AIA membership requirements.

Lee Ann M. Slattery, Sales Support Manager, stated, “ATAS has always been a leader in providing a wide variety of educational opportunities on a multitude of topics. Many of our staff have a long history of working within the industry and have held active roles in several of the industry-related associations, so we are fortunate to have a wide pool of experienced and respected resources from which to build valuable educational content. By hosting this education event at our Mesa, Arizona location, we are able to provide a tour of our facility which manufactures building envelope components from metal. And, by holding the event in February, it is an ideal reason to pair the event with a nice warm getaway from the cold weather that many are experiencing at that time of the year.”
