From the Architect’s Corner – 2014 AIA Show Recap

Last week DaVinci Roofscapes wrapped up another year exhibiting our eco friendly roof systems at the National AIA Convention and Expo located in Chicago. I love the opportunity to work at this show and educate architects and specifiers on the products. So what was on the minds of those who stopped by our booth? Here were our top 3 questions (and our answers!):

1. What are your products made of? This was definitely an expected question and I would say almost everyone (if not everyone) who stopped by to chat at our booth asked this question in one form or another. All our products are made of 100% pure virgin resin (polyethylene) also embedded with UV stabilizers, fire retardants and polymer stabilizers. 

2. Where is this made? Did you hear? Buying things made in America is sort of a big deal (okay a lot of a big deal), and our products are all made here in the USA. In fact, we just moved to a new 172,000 square foot manufacturing facility located in Lenexa, Kansas. In a world where many manufactured goods are imported, people are relieved to hear that we aren't one of them. Click here to take a virtual tour of our plant! 

3. Do you offer continuing education? While most of the credit hours an AIA member needs for the entire year can be obtained through the seminars located at the convention, there was still a lot of interest in what we have to offer. We have 2 courses, available online 24/7 (and for free!) for architects and specifiers. Click here to learn more.

See you next year in Atlanta, Architects!
