Home Commercial Mohawk Group unveils digital summit lineup

Calhoun, Ga.—Next week, Mohawk Group will host its inaugural DesignFWD Education digital summit. On Wednesday, Oct. 28, education designers, facility managers and other attendees will engage with peers and thought leaders as they explore a progressive approach to education design in a mix of live and on-demand content to equip students and staff in educational environments to thrive in an evolving learning landscape, the company said.

The one-day, virtual experience, curated around the idea of “Creating Worry-Free Education Environments,” will offer attendees a front row seat to world-class insights and practical information, the company said. High-value programming will feature actionable conversations, panels, solutions and case studies that will focus on cooperative purchasing, school performance, design solutions and more to ultimately equip and enhance learning environments. The event will take place exclusively through an interactive online platform.

“Now more than ever, every decision we make is critical to the health and safety of those in occupied spaces—especially learning environments,” said David Dembowitz, Mohawk Group’s senior vice president of education. “We invite both seasoned professionals and emerging leaders to join us at our DesignFWD Education summit to discover what’s next for our field. We’ll learn about what the future holds for educational space design and everyone it serves through the lens of new strategies, trends, movements, tips and tricks and what it will take for us to collectively move design and education forward.”

On-demand case studies will showcase the importance of the specification of different commercial finishes in learning environments and how they help school systems and universities accomplish their goals. Additional presentations will help viewers learn more about extending the life of investments in time and money through proper maintenance and care, how to learn the ins and outs of cooperative purchasing agreements with the likes of Sourcewell and OMNIA Partners and how to leverage them.

In addition to an on-demand library featuring topic-based video content on everything from accommodating all student populations to branding and maintenance, live panel discussions will include “Maximizing Your Budget Through Unexpected Times” and “A Progressive Look at School Design Moving Forward.” An all-new, virtual, 360-degree product experience for K-12 and higher education interiors will also be debuted.

Distinguished industry experts participating in the event include Julie Boynton, director of interior architecture at the University of Notre Dame, Fiona Grandowski, principal at Collins Cooper Carusi Architects,​ Debra Harris, CEO of RAD Consultants, and Terry Yaklin, director of maintenance for the Judson Independent School District in Texas.

Mohawk Group said it will continue to produce and distribute additional continuing education content following the Oct. 28 event in the form of free ongoing segment-focused experiences. The “Achieving a 4.0 for Sustainability in Higher Education” CEU will take place next week just after DesignFWD Education on Friday, Oct. 30, at 12 p.m. EST. Attendees will learn more about the integration of different techniques that apply to sustainable design and architecture for higher education and the green building certification platforms that are help buildings achieve optimum potential.
