D+D Winter 2017

In This Issue...


Challenging Times

After three years and 1,215 gallons of paint, the restoration of the U.S. Capitol dome, the first of its kind in more than 50 years, is finished. Plus: Updates on the challenge to an anti-retaliation regulation and the results of a workforce poll.


Color Science and Design for Commercial Interiors

“Eighty percent of our visual perception comes from color, and if we’re not taught what those colors mean or can trigger for people, that’s a huge blind spot.” — Gillian C. Rose, Interior Design and Color Science Consultant


Assuring and Controlling Quality

“We’re seeing an increased awareness of the importance of paint and water repellent on buildings beyond aesthetics, and more interest from owners in assuring the quality of the installation.” — Kenneth A. Trimber, KTA-Tator Inc.


Specifying Practices for Paint and Coatings

“I’m very optimistic about the level of engagement of young professionals in the real-world areas of practice; they are aggressive about learning the applied skills they need.” — Phil Kabza, SpecGuy.com


Decorative Painting

“The aesthetic quality — not just the quality of the materials — is what defines a culture. We don’t remember ancient cultures by their garbage, we remember them by the wonderful things they did.” — Jeff Greene, EverGreene Architectural Arts


Coating Concrete Floors and Other Concrete Substrates

“We know how to build durable and economical structures using concrete, but lack of compliance to known trade practices creates less-than-optimum construction.” — Fred Goodwin, BASF Construction Chemicals


Trends in Maintenance + Restoration

“With the increased availability of information and improved knowledge-sharing capabilities, there is a greater need to evaluate the source of the information and the potential bias of the authors.” — Joshua Freedland, Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc.


Building Enclosure Coatings and Industry Trends

“Lots of things have been changing … Frankly, the problem isn’t that we don’t have enough technology, it’s that we don’t have people who know how to use it.” — John Straube, RDH Building Science, University of Waterloo
