Virtual AIA Presentations

Just Because We Can’t Present in Person, Doesn’t Mean We Can’t Host a Virtual Lunch & Learn

We love to host lunch & learns and provide you with our waffle breakfasts — but the pandemic has us putting all of that on hold temporarily. However, we can still provide you those CEU credits through our Virtual Lunch & Learn program. Check out the listing below of presentations we can offer you and your firm for those continuing education credits. 

We’ve been busy this past year and have developed our very own presentation A New Approach to Workplace Design With Storage. This one is timely and with how the workplace will need to continue it’s evolution of design as employees start to return to work. This is just the beginning, more presentations to come. 

A New Approach to Workplace Design With Storage

1 AIA/HSW LU Credit

Course Description: The workplace and how employees work, collaborate, learn, care, and even touch the surfaces around them are evolving and changing. Architects and Designers are required to design for addressing the needs of here and now, and design for the flexible future. In this course, Architects and Designers will learn how to combat the challenges of making flexible and collaborative spaces while designing to mitigate the spread of pathogens. 

Evolving the university campus: reconsidering the ways we learn, teach, and interact

1 AIA/HSW LU Credit

Course Description: The pandemic is projected to have long-lasting effects on how we learn and has proven to test what we once knew ‘college life’ was all about. There is still a fair amount of uncertainty, but universities are adapting the way they learn, teach and interact and will continue to do so as more students come back to campus. In this course, Architects and Designers will learn how interior/exterior architecture can support evolving space needs by incorporating emerging applications of storage and exchange of goods across campus. How to design facilities that not only help recruit and retain students and faculty but also attract, improve safety and help create flexible, future-proof spaces.

Casework Simplified

1 AIA Credit

Course Description: Understanding the benefits of modular casework vs built-in millwork. Simplify installation. Process Explore options for surfacing, hardware, edge details and custom materials. Task specific design solutions. Learn about the benefits of computer controlled factory design solutions.

How to Design for Space COnstraints in Various workplace

1 AIA/HSW LU Credit

Course Description: Learn how to design for space constraints in a variety of workplaces from the office, to educational institutions, to museums and beyond.  This course explores furniture, fixtures, and equipment that contribute to maximizing space through design.  This course will provide participants with FF&E solutions that maximize space, are aesthetically pleasing, and contribute to occupant wellness.  Participants will learn how functional solutions can be incorporated into a workplace’s design and provide for occupants needs.

Transforming Libraries to Meet Users' Changing Needs

1 AIA/HSW LU Credit

Course Description: Libraries have responded to the changing needs of the communities they serve, and are seeking to create more flexible, open, and technology rich spaces. Architects and designers are required to design for flexibility and openness within existing and limited spaces. In this course, architects and designers will learn how to combat these challenges by using furniture, fixtures, and equipment that are able to reduce the amount of space being used for book storage and increase the availability of space with flexible FF&E. Through the proper design and use of mobile FF&E, designers will be able to design libraries that respond to up and coming trends.

Modernizing Capabilities and Enhancing Readiness with Storage Solutions for the Military

1 AIA/HSW LU Credit

Course Description:Learn about Department of Defense initiatives, and how storage solutions can support modernization and readiness of the military by department. This course explores how furniture, fixtures, and equipment can maximize space, increase security, enhance occupant wellness, and contribute to DoD initiatives by incorporating functional solutions into military base design. Participants will learn how to leverage contracts as part of an effective acquisition method for their military clients.

Integrating Storage Across Campus: How Adaptability Starts with Flexible Storage

1 AIA/HSW LU Credit

Course Description: Planning spaces for higher education environments is about much more than lecture halls and dorms – A campus is a place of learning and working, socializing and relationship-building, wellness and discovery. This presentation will walk you through how to design facilities that not only help recruit & retain students and faculty, but also manage risk, improve efficiencies and safety, and help create flexible, future-proof spaces. This presentation will also outline trends and challenges that are impacting campus facility design and demonstrates how thoughtful storage solutions can help create highly functional interior spaces and directly influence the campus’ ability to achieve its mission.

Museum Collections Storage Space Planning: Designing Safe, Efficient & Engaging Spaces

1 AIA/HSW LU Credit

Course Description: The purpose of this presentation is to help architects design museum collections storage areas that are safe, efficient, and engaging. The first part of the presentation will discuss museum workspace and workflow issues and how they are impacted by FF&E. The second portion will discuss structural and risk management issues unique to collections storage areas. The session will also include a brief discussion of the challenges and opportunities presented by making collections storage and work areas visible to the public.

Law Enforcement: Storage Secured

1 AIA/HSW LU Credit

Course Description: Law Enforcement: Storage Secured will identify major storage challenges and trends within law enforcement facilities. While identifying major storage and compliance concerns, this presentation will also identify FF&E solutions for those concerns that maximize efficiency, save floor space, reduce construction costs, and keep criminals behind bars. Finally, the presentation will touch upon other major planning considerations for these facilities, such as floor loading, ventilation, lighting, and LEED® certification.

Designing Acute Care Environments With Point of Need Storage

1 AIA/HSW LU Credit

Course Description: In this presentation, we will follow medical supplies throughout the Acute Care environment in order to see how storage location and configuration, if correctly designed, can influence staff functions, staff efficiency, staff productivity, and ultimately… patient care. In addition, careful planning can produce marked improvements in inventory control–a prime importance in healthcare facilities today. Learn how to bring storage closer to the point-of-care, plan storage with sustainability in mind and understand the various storage planning considerations.
