Looking Ahead to 2019 Commercial Hardscapes

The Belgard Commercial team strives to continually improve the products, services and resources offered to the commercial hardscape design and construction communities. Below are some of the projects in development for Belgard Commercial for the coming year.

CONTINUING EDUCATION: Belgard Commercial currently offers three online CEU courses through AEC Daily, as well as 14 Lunch & Learn courses on topics that include stormwater management, LEED® credits, permeable paver maintenance, bridge construction design, and best practice and design applications for a variety of hardscape products. To meet the evolving needs of the industry, Belgard plans to continue updating the existing courses, as well work on the development of new course offerings.

PRODUCT OFFERINGS: Belgard continually works on R&D to drive hardscape trends on both the regional and national level. Starting in 2019, Belgard will also group currently available products into product Collections to simplify specification and better facilitate the creation of beautifully coordinated hardscape designs.

WEBSITE ENHANCEMENTS: Belgard Commercial has major plans in the works to improve website functionality and online resources. Look for announcements in 2019 regarding these enhancements.

TRADESHOWS: Again this year, expect to see the Belgard teams at the industry’s leading tradeshows including the PCBC builders show in May, regional stormwater management shows throughout the year, Hardscape North America in October, and the landscape architecture ASLA Meeting & Expo in November. In addition, the Belgard Commercial team will be adding more regional tradeshows to the agenda. Look for announcements on dates and locations to come soon.

UPDATED RESOURCES: Belgard Commercial will continue to update the comprehensive Commercial Site Solutions Guide, which offers detailed regionally specific product and technical information as well as valuable resources on hardscape solutions for stormwater management, site optimization, ADA compliance, water harvesting and reuse, and more. In addition, Belgard has plans to continually update product documentation and other online resources.
