RCI Inc. announced program plans for the organization’s 2010 Symposium on Building Envelope Technology, scheduled for Nov. 8-9 at the Hyatt Regency on the Riverwalk at Paseo Del Alamo in San Antonio, Texas.

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.

Building-envelope product manufacturers will display products and services; more than 200 building-envelope professionals are expected to attend.

Educational presentations will include:
 
• Addressing roof leaks by fixing a wall problem;

• Lessons learned from curtain wall failure investigations;

• Cement plaster metrics: Quantifying stucco shrinkage and other movements; cracking acceptability criteria for evaluating stucco;

• Hidden holes in balcony waterproofing applications;

• The designer's dilemma: Modern performance expectations and historic masonry wall systems;

• Saving our facilities (and the world);

• When horizontal meets vertical;

• In between: Designing joints within façades;

• Metal roofing: Platform for renewable energy systems;

• Not Your grandfather's windows: New glazing and fenestration technologies to meet expanding energy and peak power reduction goals;

• High-performance building enclosures cause condensation and indoor air quality problems: The need for integrated design and new investigation protocols; and

• Rapid building failure.
