Becoming an Architectural Mesh Expert With AIA CEU Presentations
Architectural mesh is a unique material that is becoming popular in modern architectural design. As mesh continues to grow, so does the demand for educational tools about its possibilities.
This is where the AIA comes into play.
With the resources, such as AIA CEU Presentations, architects can become architectural mesh experts. They solidify that the only limitation to mesh is your imagination.
Having worked with architectural mesh for over 20 years, W.S. Tyler has developed AIA Presentations of its own that answer any questions you may have.
In this article, you will learn what an AIA Presentation is, what presentations W.S. Tyler offers, how much each presentation costs, how to sign up for the presentations, and what to do once you're ready for the next steps.
What Is an AIA CEU Presentation?
The American Institute of Architects (AIA), is a platform that provides architects with educational resources. AIA CEU presentations provide architects with a portal to new products, opportunities, procedures, and much more.
Now, like other professions, architects must meet several guidelines to maintain their licenses and AIA membership. One of these guidelines requires all architects to get a certain number of CEU’s.
CEU stands continuing education unit and is used to track an architects efforts to continually expand their professional growth. The AIA checks each presentation to ensure the content meets the necessary qualifications to confidently count towards an CEU credit.
In other words, most AIA-approved presentations allow architects to learn about the latest news while also earning their CEU credits.
Each of these AIA presentations has to meet certain criteria. This includes learning objectives geared toward promoting a safe, healthy, and sustainable environment.
This attention of detail allows the AIA to stand by its value of supporting architecture that enhance the communities in which we live.

I’ve Sat Through Both Presentations, Now What?
So you’ve gone through each presentation and are considering implementing mesh. Well, the next step would be to contact our Architectural Sales Manager and go over your project.
Once you establish an idea of what mesh profile will work best, you will receive samples of the material. When you receive your samples, we will request any renderings or drawings you have.
These renderings get passed along to our product manager and technical product manager. They will then help you along your architectural design process and give you a general idea of the cost.
