PROGRAM
So we have an accurate count, please specify which program(s) you will be attending

  • Designing With Tile 
Scott Conwell, AIA
Director of Industry Development & Technical Services, International Masonry Institute
Attendees will develop an understanding of the various types of tile, setting methods, system components, design and installation considerations, specialty systems, and quality assurance. Attendees will learn how to use applicable codes and standards to design and specify tile work meeting minimum requirements and best practices. The program will emphasize design and installation requirements for large format tile, including substrate preparation. The program will also look at the new standards for coefficient of friction (COF). There will be a discussion of sustainable attributes of tile. The program will also address the new recommended specification language for installer qualifications appearing in the TCNA Handbook and MasterSpec.
  • Introduction To Rustic Terrazzo
Gary French
National Terrazzo and Mosaic Association (NTMA)
This session will give an overview of the NTMA and what is on the horizon for the organization. The Rustic Terrazzo Flooring System will be discussed, followed by a Q and A.
  • MAPEI Thin Porcelain Panels and Hands-On Daltile
This session will outline the features and benefits of thin body tiles (3mm-7mm) including design and installation requirements and techniques for successful projects. The program addresses new means and methods for reducing lippage on large format tile and thin body porcelain tile. Attendees will gain an understanding of thin body porcelain tile modules in sizes that can range up to 4ft x 10ft that are one third the weight of typical tile systems. Attendees will develop an understanding of proven and fully tested key installation techniques, systems, and applications that are new to the market. They will learn about tile over tile opportunities perfectly suited for thin body porcelain tile that can save enormous demolitions costs and reduce projects schedules. Attendees will also view a full scale mockup and demonstration illustrating thin tile installation.
