Attendees will better understand the positive impact tile can have on green building projects, and will be able to explain strategies for achieving standard and rating system compliance among architects, specifiers, and green building professionals.

Part 3: Ventilated Wall Systems: Porcelain Stoneware Cladding Solution for Energy Efficient Buildings

This session introduces the porcelain ventilated wall system, its components, and how they function to reduce building energy use for both retrofits and new construction. The majority of this session is made up of sustainable design information. The session offers more detailed and new information on a product, construction or manufacturing process, LEED credit achievement and other green organizations.
