Pushing the Envelope-Going Beyond Conceptual Design
Presented by Roofing Concepts Inc
Members & guests are invited to AIA Akron & Akron-Canton CSI's BUSINESS AFTER HOURS - an opportunity for architects, specifiers, engineers, material suppliers and project managers to socialize, eat good food, and learn about the products available for use in the creation and management of the built environment.
Over the past several years, the building envelope concept has been well promoted and established as a means for energy efficiency and building performance. With the vast product offerings available today comes confusion and misinformation. Building designers are often left guessing about product compatibility and proper design, leading to the potential of costly failures. The focus on their presentation is to dive deeper, beyond the concept and into proper building envelope design. The presentation aims to educate attendees on proper product selection and performance characteristics, codes and testing, and proper tie-in detailing to ensure a continuous air seal.
