Building performance and aesthetics will take center stage at D+D 2014, the first annual conference and exhibit hosted by Durability + Design Magazine.

D+D 2014 will take place in May at the historic Hilton Netherlands Plaza Hotel in Cincinnati, OH.

D+D 2014 will gather an emerging technical community of specifiers, architects, contractors, and facility owners united by their interest in achieving excellence in the use of surface technologies, such as architectural coatings, concrete and masonry sealers, roof coating systems, concrete polishing, decorative treatments for concrete and other substrates, and materials and treatments for curtain wall metals.

The event will take place at the historic Hilton Netherlands Plaza Hotel.

Paper Titles, Abstracts Invited

The magazine is seeking titles and abstracts of papers for the conference, themed "Advances in Protective and Aesthetic Technologies for Buildings.”

Technologies to be considered for the conference include those contributing to building performance, such as air barriers and reflective roof coatings, as well as those designed to provide aesthetics and durability to building substrates, such as sealers, coatings, polished concrete finishes, fire-resistive materials, and others.

D+D magazine

Durability + Design, published by Technology Publishing Co., focuses on building performance and aesthetics.

Papers will focus on the key issues of selecting and specifying the most appropriate materials and installing them according to good technical practice. Also to be considered are descriptions of emerging surface materials and technologies that will contribute to building performance and aesthetics as they are put into practice.

Titles and abstracts of 150-250 words must be emailed to Harold Hower by Aug. 25.

‘A Common Conversation’

Several technical societies and industry associations are also expected to develop and lead their own sessions at the event.

“This conference is designed to answer a real need in the industry: to bring together multiple points of influence in a common conversation,” said Sharon Steele, publisher of Durability + Design.

D+D 2014 will provide specifiers, owners, applicators, and manufacturers the opportunity to learn and share information about the latest technologies and advancements in building aesthetics and performance.”

Prospective participants are invited to email Steele or call her at 412-697-0315.
