The two-day program will offer 12 educational sessions presented by building-envelope designers. Speakers will offer experience-based insights for specification of sound, durable building exteriors, with most of the programs focusing on repair and sustainable-design methods for strengthening and improving existing exterior envelopes, RCI said.
