Every building has a story – join Lakeside as she explores the incredible stories of conflict and triumph that have arisen during the design and construction process, and uncovers lessons learned that will help her listeners anticipate and navigate any assortment of challenges that may arise during the course of their projects. “We are excited to join forces with ARCAT to bring our listeners this enlightening new series,” said Mark R. LePage, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Gābl Media. “ARCAT is widely recognized as a powerful resource for AEC professionals looking to find building product information and product content such as specs, CAD and BIM. Through this partnership and collaboration with our production division Gābl Creative, ARCAT will now be able to add Detailed to its extensive resource library.” “Our philosophy at ARCAT is to create the most user-friendly website, free of registration, to supply product data in all formats needed to save the AEC community time in finding, selecting, detailing, and specifying building products for their construction projects. This podcast series will be an extension of that philosophy and another format for our users to learn more about the design and construction process as well as hear real-world examples of building product application.” said Casey Jannott, CEO of ARCAT. “Cherise is an engaging host, and her involvement with the Construction Specifications Institute and background as an instructor, trainer, and speaker – to name a few roles – in the industry very much shine through,” added Dimitrius J.
