Keilhauer, BIFMA & ASID Launch New CEU: “Eight Attributes of Contract Furniture”

Keilhauer, ASID and BIFMA have partnered to launch a new CEU course developed to help design professionals make the best commercial furniture decisions for their clients.

From authentic design practices and best-in-class construction techniques, to wellness and sustainability, Eight Attributes of Contract Furniture is designed to explore the key considerations that drive furniture decisions in the commercial built environment. The course aims to better equip design professionals to make informed decisions when choosing the right pieces for a space and the people who occupy it.

“Keilhauer is thrilled to partner with ASID and BIFMA on the 8 Attributes of Contract Furniture CEU,” said Meghan Sherwin, VP of Marketing, Keilhauer. “It’s important that we are providing design professionals with meaningful content, supported by industry best practices, as they continue their education.”

“As our profession continues to change in an increasingly globalized world, designers must apply knowledge in order to thrive,” states Randy Fiser, Hon. FASID, CEO, American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). “ASID is pleased to partner with Keilhauer and BIFMA on the 8 Attributes of Contract Furniture CEU. As the professional organization that represents the entire design community (healthcare, workplace, hospitality, retail, and residential), we believe it is our responsibility to provide continuing education opportunities for current and future industry leaders. We know that design impacts lives, and knowledge and education are key to making a meaningful impact. This CEU will provide necessary education for design professionals, and we are proud to be a part of it.”

“BIFMA is very pleased to collaborate with Keilhauer and ASID to bring this CEU to the design community”, Tom Reardon, BIFMA’s Executive Director, adds. “Education about what makes furniture suitable for commercial environments is central to BIFMA’s mission. We are eager to share our expertise relative to each of the attributes along with our deep understanding of safety, performance and sustainability.”

The approved 60-minute course will earn participants 1.0 CEU credit, with the HSW-Sustainability designation through the IDCEC or 1.0 LU credit via the AIA.
