RCI Inc., SWR Institute Announce Alliance

Monday, March 15, 2010

Comment | More

RCI Inc. and the Sealant, Waterproofing and Restoration (SWR) Institute announced a strategic alliance, a collaboration that the two groups said "furthers the goals of both organizations-to promote standards for those involved with sealants, waterproofing, building exteriors, and restoration.

The organizations will share industry expertise and information for the mutual benefit of both associations, an announcement on the launch of the alliance stated. The organizations said they have begun collectively developing educational documents and programs for sealant, waterproofing, building exterior, and restoration practitioners.

A co-sponsored webinar on air barriers is currently in production, and will be released in mid-year 2010. Future joint projects will include a variety of webinars, seminars, and position papers, the organizations said.

RCI President David R. Hawn said the alliance "strengthens the voice of both RCI and the SWR Institute. It expands professional-development opportunities for construction, consulting, and contracting professionals, and it will present a united message regarding methods, techniques and products used in the industry."

SWR Institute President Jed Daniel agreed. "Working with RCI not only helps both organizations but the industry," he said. "SWR Institute is excited about the possibilities of this alliance."

RCI Inc. is an international association of professional consultants, architects, and engineers who specialize in the specification and design of roofing, waterproofing, and exterior wall systems. RCI regularly hosts educational programs designed to "demystify and explain the application of building-envelope technologies."

SWR Institute is a nonprofit trade association representing contractors, manufacturers, design professionals, and consultants. The institute is a source of information on durable construction and repair of building envelopes and structures.

More information on the organizations is available on the websites located at ww.rci-online.org and swrionline.org.
