AWI Chicago Chapter & Members Host Veneer Presentation

Members of the AWI Chicago Chapter hosted "A Peer into Veneer & Suitable Substrates" presentation for RTKL Architects, a national firm with offices in several U.S. locations, including Chicago. Aetna Plywood, a local AWI material supplier, and Great Lakes Wood Products co-sponsored the event on July 13 at RTKL’s Michigan Avenue offices.

Kevin Forestall provided live pieces of veneer for demonstration during the presentation. "The program is an excellent example of outreach to the design community," said AWI Executive Vice President Phil Duvic.
