Dörken Systems Inc. launches DELTA® Academy, a host of education programs for building professionals who strive to build to a higher standard. DELTA® Academy gives building professionals, such as architects, specifiers, and contractors, access to relevant and timely information addressing new research findings and industry standards, curated and presented by the industry’s key thought leaders. In a complex industry and environment, DELTA® Academy is easy to access, convenient, and simple to use.
DELTA® Academy will kick off its education programs on September 25th with The Perfect Wall: Building Better Enclosures Seminar, hosted by Dr. John Straube at the Atlantic Wharf in Boston; followed by seminars in St. Louis, MO on October 18th and in Washington, DC on November 2nd.
In an effort to increase accessibility and convenience for all, additional education programs offered through a combination of presentations, seminars, workshops and panels hosted by industry experts, such as Dr. John Straube, P.Eng. and Dr. Joseph Lstiburek, P.Eng., ASHRAE Fellow, academic research, case studies, and online modules will begin to rollout in 2018. DELTA® Academy will also deliver AIA-accredited and approved sessions, to be available as full-day, in-person workshops, ideal for earning AIA CEU credits.
“Keeping up with the latest best practices when it comes to all aspects of better buildings and better products can be difficult for building professionals,” says Marcus Jablonka, Vice President at Dörken Systems Inc. “DELTA® Academy will provide them with a competitive advantage by giving them access to convenient learning options supported by scientific evidence and global expertise.”
As part of its extensive curricula, DELTA® Academy will equip building professionals with the knowledge they need to create buildings that perform at increasingly higher levels. This includes vital information pertaining to proper installation and application techniques, updates to building codes, new and existing requirements from associations such as LEED®(USGBC), EEBA, ABAA, and Passive House, product and process innovations, and overall best practices.
“Dörken is committed to continuously making buildings better for people and the world,” says Jablonka. “By leveraging our global expertise, our relationships with third-party experts and our access to scientific evidence, DELTA® Academy enables all building professionals to bring this knowledge and expertise to their business.”
