The appearance of a building plays a significant role in attracting and retaining tenants which is why it’s critical that your building’s façade is free of cracks, leaks, and safety issues, is conscious of unnecessary utility consumption, and aesthetically complements its surroundings.
IQPC’s 6th Façades Design & Delivery Summit is a global event that unites architects, engineers, curtain wall designers, real estate owners, property developers and facility managers in their quest to ensure the profitability and quality assurance of façade construction projects. Our expert speaking faculty will discuss the principles of façade design with regard to architectural vision, weatherproofing, indoor environmental quality, energy efficiency, daylighting and much more.
Join us in San Francisco on January 27th & 28th for the 6th Façades Design & Delivery Summit to discuss:
- Responding to climate change and natural disasters with resilient façade design, durable materials, and ongoing maintenance
- Utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM), Energy Audits (EAs), and Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) to accurately assess the functional characteristics of a façade
- Funding façade design updates to create commercially viable real estate options and increase property equity
- Increasing collaboration between owners, tenants, architects, and engineers to eliminate lag time in design and construction
