Constructing a better knowledge base in Rhode Island

September 5, 2017

Registration is still open for CONSTRUCT & the CSI Annual Convention[1], coming to Providence’s Rhode Island Convention Center[2] from September 13 to 15. Featuring exhibits, social events, and myriad opportunities to expand technical knowledge, the conference appeals to a wide variety of design/construction professionals—both in CSI and beyond.

The event’s educational program was determined by an Education Advisory Council[3] comprising 12 people:

Educational opportunities are available throughout the convention center, from designated technical sessions to show floor-based seminars led by exhibitors. Attendees can visit the exhibit hall’s Learning Lounge[15] for one-hour sessions on subjects such as paint technology, wall/roof sheathing, and wood cladding. A Learning Pavilion[16] is also located in the hall, hosting 45-minute exhibitor sessions covering everything from security glass to thermal efficiency.

CONSTRUCT attendees can also attend a keynote with Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne on September 14, and a Game Changer Session with Paul Doherty (“Specifications in the Age of Smart Cities: How Specs are Changing the World”) on September 15. See the video above for a preview of the latter session.

Seminars, technical tours, and exhibitor-led sessions are a few of the educational opportunities available at CONSTRUCT & the CSI Annual Convention this year.
