Responding to the Increased Demand for Outdoor Living Spaces with Innovative Outdoor Quartz Surfaces

Start Date
End Date
A ground-breaking outdoor quartz product provides the convenience of stainresistant,
easy-to-clean indoor quartz surfaces, while innovating a highly durable
material proven to withstand UV rays and the most extreme environmental
conditions over the long term. The new quartz product provides an answer for
consumers’ desire to cook, dine, and entertain comfortably in an outdoor kitchen,
come rain, snow, or shine. This course will examine how outdoor living spaces
continue to be a very desirable amenity for homeowners and commercial properties
and how designers and landscape architects can incorporate outdoor quartz
surfaces into their plans. We will examine the performance benefits and design
options for this new product, as well as applications in both residential and
commercial projects.
