applications are best specified. Attendees will gain an understanding of the types of equipment,
chemicals and diamond tooling required to complete the various types of polished concrete.
Attendees will also be able to ascertain the life cycle and sustainability of each type of polished
concrete when specified in the proper environment.
1. Attendees will be able to define the different types of polished concrete and discern when and
where to specify each specific type based on a commercial project example.
2. Attendees will be able to identify the pros/cons of each type of polished concrete's sustainable
design and how to enhance design solutions that maximize long term benefits using polished
3. Attendees will be able to calculate the estimated life cycle cost of each type of polished concrete
based on the course life cycle sample estimate form.
4. Attendees will be able to identify possible health and safety concerns related to each type of
polished concrete and specify best practices / procedures to minimize environmental and
