This past week LP Building Products launched “Architect’s Corner” on LPCorp.com, 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 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.
“As technology, the construction industry and design needs evolve, we will continue to evaluate what tools are most helpful for architects and engineers, and we will continue to add additional resources to Architect’s Corner,” says Rachel Smith, LP Marketing Communications Manager. “Just like any good building project we will want to renovate the site to stay current, and we’ll rely on our AEC partners to play a vital role in deciding what renovations to make.”
