L.M. Scofield Company announced the launch of a new online AIA DES module, “Architectural Concrete: Ground & Polished with Integral Color, Dyes and Stains.”
This free module explains the basic principles of the ground and polished concrete process, and discusses LEED project qualifying, slip coefficient, coloring systems, maintenance, and other aspects of the process.
Although aimed at continuing-education requirements for architects, the module can be useful for anyone currently involved in or considering the use of ground and polished concrete.
The program addresses topic areas such as:
• how to incorporate ground and polished concrete into projects;
• understanding how to select the proper grade and class for a polished-concrete specification;
• densifying concrete and how ground and polished concrete compares to other flooring materials;
• floor flatness;
• light reflectivity; and
• how to properly color and maintain a ground and polished floor.
The program can be viewed at Ground and Polished Concrete module.
