Architect & Design professionals hammered away at Ridgefield, Connecticut-based Ridgefield Supply this week as they gathered for the Katz Roadshow. For the second year in a row, Ridgefield Supply hosted the hands-on event. This year the construction program focused on continuing education for architects with an AIA Better Building Clinic.
The program is led by Gary Katz and Mike Sloggatt, two carpentry experts, nationally recognized authors and teachers. The Katz Roadshow is a partnership of leading manufacturers and installation specialists who provide hands-on training clinics for professional and DIYers at lumberyards across America. The goal of the event is to improve the bottom line, hone skills and increase productivity.
Glen Albee, president of Ridgefield Supply, said participation at the event brok a Katz Roadshow record for most architect attendees. “Continuing education is one of the key elements in business,” he said. “Building technology and materials are ever-changing.”
This year’s clinic was developed with architects in mind and the AIA Better Building Events are clinics devoted to better building practices -- from the jobsite to the architect. The day featured courses that cover traditional installation techniques and evolving construction technologies with modern materials.
A networking reception was held in Ridgefield Supply's new showroom and retail store.
