Interior and exterior cladding design concepts using Corian® created

PHILADELPHIA, PA, November 11, 2011 - C.H. Briggs, a leading local distributor of specialty building products, is hosting a temporary exhibit of student solutions proposed for a re-imagined historic district in Savannah, GA.

Through a course collaboration with the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), five students from the School of Building Arts conceptualized and created new interior and exterior cladding design concepts using DuPont™ Corian®.

"This collaboration with SCAD has produced some of the most thought-provoking and visually stimulating design concepts using DuPont™ Corian® to create a unique experience in the proposed built environment," said Luis Arias, Chief Marketing Officer, C.H. Briggs.

Students used the solid surface as a vehicle to accomplish a contemporary design that still successfully complements the historic nature of the built environment around them. The result was a three-story building with a Corian® exterior wall system embedded with grass and a multi-use application, which included using Corian® as flooring and pathways as well as walls and enclosures. Through December 2011, the building models will be on display along with samples of textured Corian® panels designed by the students.

C.H. Briggs markets and distributes specialty building materials. Founded in 1967 and operating in North America, C.H. Briggs offers a wide range of innovative products and services in hardware, board and surfacing materials.
