Architects & Designers Are Now Able to Add Beauty and Elegance That Endures to Each of Their Individual Projects Without Subtracting From the Planet's Resources

LANCASTER, PA--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) -  Compass Ironworks provides cutting edge education on an elegant, yet eco-friendly material.

Professional architects and designers finally have educational support on specifying Ironworks for their projects. Now, with a CEU course that is accredited by AIA, ASLA, as well as IDCEC, professional groups are able to have their entire team educated on the idiosyncrasies of Ironwork by a master craftsman.

"Being able to educate my whole team of landscape architects was phenomenal, it empowers them to embrace the sustainable attributes and specify with confidence."
- Chuck Hess from Chuck Hess Landscape Architects

This course educates on the eco-friendly attributes associated with elegant foyer railings, exquisite terrace railings, pool and property fences, as well as estate gates, which include proper specification of a environmentally friendly, yet durable finishing process that is able to withstand even the shore's most brutal salt filled air.

"People look at them every day, whether it be the incredible gates at the Breakers Mansion, the 3 story iron staircase railing at Biltmore or a 1920s security fence on a mainline estate, there is little awareness that this durability can be specified in 97-100% recycled content. Who knew that this material with ageless beauty and grace was also eco-friendly and sustainable."
- Amos Glick

Compass Ironworks provides CEU education programs to architects and interior designers in their own offices. "Lunch & Learns" are simple programs where lunch is provided by Compass Ironworks, but because of the lack of accredited information available, some professional teams seize the opportunity to immerse themselves into this hour long course and savor the experience into a 3 hour enrichment experience. These programs offer actual samples and methodology for professional teams helping them to understand Ironwork, feel, and wrap their hands around the actual product. This course accentuates the necessity of specifying correct hinges for estate gates in order to eliminate the hassle and frustration of constant automatic opener maintenance and down time, as well as structural and safety considerations. Every detail is covered down to the tray of Pennsylvania Dutch whoopee pies.

Todd Daniel, Executive Director from NOMMA, states, "This course does an excellent job of covering all aspects of metal working, improving the working relationship between craftsmen and architect and increase project efficiency."
