April 26: The Revolutionary New Solution for Formosa Subterranean Termites (HSW)
RSVP for Free Lunch Program - Limited Seats Available!
NEXT WEEK! Wednesday, April 26, 12-1pm, Center for Architecture.
Pango Wrap comes from the creators of Stego Wrap Vapor Barrier, the most widely-specified below-slab vapor barrier in North America. Unlike chemical sprays that do nothing to prevent other contaminants from entering the building, Pango Wrap is a high-performance vapor barrier as well as a termite defense barrier.
Combining these two solutions in one product saves time and labor costs during construction. Learn more from datasheet. Qualifies for 1 AIA/CES LU (HSW).
RSVP by April 25 for planning purposes. Lunch from Kaka’ako Kitchen will be provided by the host.
