Concrete applied as art

January 17, 2002 |

The Pennsylvania Concrete Promotion Council presents 'Concrete in Design - The Application As Art,' a seminar created to assist the design and building communities with up-to-date concrete practice in interior design.  The seminar will be held Thursday, Feb. 28, 2002, at the Sheraton Hotel in Mars, Pa.

    The event will focus on new practices in using concrete in the interior design and architectural fields.  Topics will include poured-in-place sinks, tubs and countertops, radiant in-floor heating, staining, and stamping.  Each topic will feature a lecture and finished product examples.  An expert panel will also be assembled to handle a question and answer session.  The seminar qualifies for four (4) AIA/CES learning units.

"There have been many changes in standard practice over the past few years," says Howard Jesko of the L.M. Scofield Co.  "And the rate of home-builders requesting concrete in their homes is on the rise.  Countertops and sinks, as well as staining and stamping opportunities are experiencing tremendous growth.  This seminar will help to ensure proper placement and a satisfied homeowner."

'Concrete in Design' begins at 8:30 a.m. and will end at approximately 2 p.m. Interior designers, architects, contractors and homebuilders are invited to attend.  A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
