[%Luncheon Speaker Series: Stefan Brey - Designing the Building Envelope%]
Performance Objectives and Constraints in a Changing Industry Environment
The building envelope not only plays an important role in making buildings more energy efficient, it is a key element of the “value-shift” in the construction market. Building envelope design and especially glazing selection can have a drastic impact on building occupants’ thermal comfort, visual comfort, access to daylight and acoustic privacy. Glazing selection and façade design influence the architectural image of a building, presenting an interesting integration of performance and architectural design intent.
This presentation looks at the difficult task of managing the future value of our buildings during the design phase and the constraints and industry hurdles faced by architects and consultants.
Register now for this CE event to be held next Wednesday at 12 .30 pm.
