Description

The curtain wall industry has undergone significant restructuring during the past decades. This session addresses the state of the industry in 2016, the challenges faced by designers and constructors in employing this building envelope system, the potential effect on long-term building operating costs and on indoor air quality, and best practices for mitigating those risks. Practical insights and useful information will be presented from successful projects and from claim scenarios.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the changes that have affected the curtain wall industry in the past few years.
  • Explain how these changes have the potential to delay and to increase project costs during the construction phase.
  • Explain how these changes have the potential to increase operating costs during the building life cycle.
  • Describe measures to reduce the risks and costs associated with curtain wall installations during the project and building life cycles.

Speaker(s):

  • Larry Franklin, Senior Risk Engineering Consultant, Zurich Services Corporation
  • Walt Massey, National Healthcare Practice Leader, Balfour Beatty Construction
