Deciding which façade system and materials to use can be challenging. This one-day conference aims to refine your understanding of the latest innovations in the market, to make you find out about managing costs and improving energy efficiency on your façade project. It also includes detailed case studies on the technicalities of designing a façade for different building types.

With growing demands from clients for cost-effective façades and increased government legislation on energy efficiency, architects need to balance many requirements when designing a building façade:

- Develop technical expertise in façade systems and materials
- Improve energy performance in your building envelope
- Network with fellow practitioners and discuss their experience with facades
- Discover how the building core can determine façade aesthetic
- Hear in-depth case studies on leading of façades in residential, office and mixed use developments

Registration and refreshments
