Stucco is an extremely versatile cladding system that’s continuing to gain market share – but requires a high degree of expertise to correctly specify and apply.


Join experts from Oldcastle APG for detailed insights into best practices for specifying, detailing and applying stucco systems that will stand the test of time. We will explore the basics of one-, two- and three-coat systems, optimal design details, specification best practices and how to effectively inspect applications on the job site.


With stucco applications continuing to gain wall share, this is a can’t-miss session for architects in every vertical.


December 15 – Masonry Automation with the FBR Hadrian X System  (1 LU | HSW)

As construction schedules tighten, speed of construction is becoming an increasingly critical consideration across all trades.


Though masonry delivers numerous benefits, speed of construction is not typically one of its top selling points. However, new technologies are promising to revolutionize the trade.


Join experts from Oldcastle APG as we explore new automated installation technologies such as Hadrian X from FBR that merge BIM modeling with advanced robotics to enable faster, more efficient masonry installs.
