Seminar: Catch up on CEUs in Vancouver

November 25, 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 6:15 pm


Deadline to register: Wednesday, November 18
Please note that there will be an additional charge of $25 for registration at the door.


2:30 p.m. | Registration

3 – 4 p.m. | Paint Matters TM (1 IDCEC hour)
Paint is viewed as simply aesthetic, yet it can lead to either a very positive first impression or a lasting negative one. Long after a project is completed the performance of the paint system speaks to the quality of a building and the care put into it by the owner and designer. Paint is also the first line of defense against the elements. When paint performance does not live up to expectations it not only results in tragic and costly consequences to the project. It also impacts the reputation of everyone associated with it.


Presenter: Davis Kyle, MPI

Davis Kyle is the Executive Vice President of MPI and has been in the coatings industry from more than 30 years. With extensive experience in both new construction and facility maintenance, Davis has witnessed a variety of costly project disasters resulting from the lack of an unbiased specification. As a former LEED AP and Certified Technical Representative (CTR) Davis worked to educate specifiers through accredited programs on the value of performance based coating standards.

4 – 5 p.m. | Low VOC coatings (1 IDCEC hour + HSW)
Part two of the presentation approaches the need for coating systems that are designed to maximize performance while meeting or exceeding environmental and low VOC requirements.

Presenter: Davis Kyle, MPI

5 – 5:15 p.m. | Break

5:15 – 6:15 p.m. | Well-Being (1 IDCEC hour + HSW)
The sustainability movement has led to a new awareness of how to design buildings to be more sustainable. But what are we doing for the occupant? True, greener buildings are healthier for the occupant with better lighting, more access to natural daylight, reduced exposure to toxins and increased fresh air. But that’s not enough. Sitting stagnantly at a desk staring at a computer all day is killing us faster than anything else. Many office-based workers are not living healthy lives, and we as the design community have an opportunity to change.
