Zurn Launches First Two of a Series of Continuing Education Courses for Architects

Courses Available on The Continuing Architect (TCA)

Publish Date: Tuesday, July 23, 2013

ERIE, PA... Zurn Industries, LLC, the leader in engineered water solutions, has launched two new continuing education courses for architects–the first two of a series of eight new courses scheduled for release through early 2014.

The first course – “Sustainable Restroom Design”– explores commercial plumbing product innovations, technologies, and strategies that are advancing the principles of sustainable design, life-cycle assessment, and water efficiency in new and old commercial buildings.

The course emphasizes that sustainability is not achieved solely with new construction. By upgrading and retrofitting existing restroom facilities, the upgrade can make an immediate impact on water conservation through the selection of low-consumption water closets, urinals, and sensor faucets.

The second course, launched this month – “Siphonic Roof Drain Systems” – explains the importance of roof drainage, how to select and specify the appropriate roof drain systems by application, and the sustainable benefits of siphonic drain systems. In addition, architects will benefit from an explanation of the siphonic theory, industry codes, and standards.

The first two Zurn courses are available through The Continuing Architect (TCA):

1. Designing Sustainable Restrooms: www.thecontinuingarchitect.com/course/55

2. Siphonic Roof Drain Systems: www.thecontinuingarchitect.com/course/56

Two other Zurn courses scheduled to launch this year:

3. “Innovative Water Conservation Fixture Systems” (August 2013)

4. “Trench Drain Systems: Fundamental and Aesthetics” (September 2013)

In total, eight Zurn courses will be available by April 2014.

“Zurn is excited to bring our AIA-approved continuing education courses to a new dimension,” says Christine Verdecchia, Director of Communications for Zurn. “We believe in the importance of delivering world-class education to our specifying customers. Our team of experts is proud to offer in-depth knowledge about topics of importance to architects and engineers.”

Successful completion of the course qualifies an architect for one CES HSW LU credit with the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
