Please join us for everything you need to know about Polished Concrete.  We will start by defining polished concrete and cover polishing basics, substrate installation and maintenance associated polished concrete floors.

A little information regarding our presenter - David Stephenson's career has spanned decades in a variety of different roles.  He began as President of one of the largest decorative commercial installation contracting companies in the US staining, sealing, dyeing and polishing millions of square feet of flooring.  He also was co-founder and Vice President of a company named Ameripolish and worked on a team that invented concrete dye as an alternative to acid stain, which allowed polished concrete to transition from an industrial product to an architectural product.  David provides independent consulting to Owners, Architects, Developers and Contractors all over the globe, assisting with the process from conception and specification creation to providing customized maintenance programs.  David sits on several committees with ACI, is a keynote speaker at Concrete Decor Magazine show periodically, regularly teaches at the World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas and provides classes and training for a variety of other clients on a regular basis.

The below are the AIA approved learning objectives:

  • Explore types of polished concrete projects and their various applications as well as common pitfalls in the rapidly growing polished concrete industry
