LP Building Products Launches ‘Architect’s Corner’

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 27, 2017)– LP Building Products recently launched “Architect’s Corner” on, a new resource for architects, engineers and specifiers in the design and building industry (AEC). The AEC community aims to solve design problems efficiently and effectively, and LP’s Architect’s Corner was designed to provide the specifications, advice and background that will help AEC members determine the most appropriate building solutions. 

As the AEC community has greater involvement in multifamily and light commercial projects, Architect’s Corner currently leverages products most applicable to these types of construction: LP® FlameBlock® Fire-Rated OSB Sheathing and LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding. The site is streamlined for a direct user experience; therefore, LP included only the most relevant and helpful information for this specific AEC audience. As both technology and the building industry evolve, LP plans to include additional products, resources and design updates. Ultimately, Architect’s Corner aims to provide the AEC community with the best solution for design freedom.

“The AEC community strives to provide solutions, and LP mirrors that approach with our Architect’s Corner,” explained Mike Sims, SVP of sales, marketing and strategy for LP. “We want to continue developing relationships with this community—both learning from and educating them—on some of the best resources and most efficient ways to complete projects. Together, we can develop simplified design and building solutions that can revolutionize the industry and foster success.” 

He continued, “LP Building Products provides building and design solutions for all types of structures, including single-family, multifamily and light commercial. We want to provide architects with the information they need in one easy-to-use resource.”
