Concrete Design School opens in Tempe, Arizona

Brandon Gore of Gore Design Co. and Hard Goods has recently launched a new training program for professionals called Concrete Design School. Based in Tempe, Arizona, stand-alone workshops will cover fabric-forming, mold-making, casting with pumps and transporting the finished product.

Gore’s been involved in offering training workshops since 2005, when he conducted what was reportedly the world’s first class on the subject of creating concrete sinks and countertops using GFRC. In 2008 he taught what the School says was the industry’s first class on fabric-forming. Concrete Design School is the continuation and progression of those efforts.

When Gore began working with GFRC (glass-fiber reinforced concrete), the techniques were still new and there was no training available. A contractor had to take the risk of using this material by learning from trial and error. Gore’s training helped concrete reach an ever-broadening market and allowed contractors to take their skills to the highest level. Gore’s classes are held in Tempe and are 1 1/2 days to 2 1/2 days in length.
