The design of façades may be an art, but it’s also a business. Big business.
The questions keeping the architecture industry up at night affect everything from aesthetics to energy efficiency. Do we have the right glass in our windows? Should we pursue LEED certification? What impact will a façade revamping have on the neighbourhood? Is the façade strong enough to protect the building’s interior from severe weather? Is my team sufficiently prepared to use BIM? Will the prefabricated elements work when they’re on site?
These are just some of the questions hovering over architects, façade engineers, and façade consultants.
We will have the answers at IQPC's Façades Design and Delivery Conference from May 20-22, 2013. Find out how industry leaders are increasing profit margins, benchmarking energy efficiency, selecting building materials, utilizing BIM, and incorporating climate change into their architectural plans. You will ensure your building’s success by preparing for new opportunities in these areas!

Many of us there have participated in gatherings for the facades industry over our many years in the business, but we all agreed that we've never experienced an event that has provided such a solid format, rich in the latest technical information along with sufficient time to interact with both presenters and attendees alike. Great job IQPC and we look forward to participating in future summits!Doug Walker, VP Sales & Marketing, Sika Corp
