AN’s NYC 2013 facades+ PERFORMANCE Conference



AN & Enclos presents facades+Performance Conference in New York 4/11+12

Are you a member of the AEC community: an architect, engineer, or other design professional or student? Do you want to cut through the jargon and consider the the heart of high performance building envelopes? Join a broad consortium of your peers for two days this April at facades+ PERFORMANCE, where experts in the industry will analyze, discuss, and dispute the development, implementation, and maintenance of high-performance building enclosures.

Here’s a taste:
Performance is contextual. Like durability, it is not an inherent property of a material, product or system. The usage must be defined, performance evaluation criteria established, with metric and benchmark criteria determined. If the material, product, or system exceeds these benchmarks, they are qualified as high-performance. However, the definition of high performance facades itself is elusive, often incorporating trending keywords like “sustainable” and “technologically advanced” to describe practices that are arguably neither. The difficulty lies in pinpointing the most significant contributors to the performance of a façade, with contenders ranging from metrics (such as U-values) to physics (a double-skin façade cavity) to post-occupancy commissioning. There is no clear answer.
Sign up now to discover new perspectives on building skins and opportunities for advancement in the delivery of cladding systems.

Sign up here to catch the early bird rate until this Friday, March 8!
