Leading Building Designers to Speak at 2015 Building Envelope Technology Symposium Hosted by RCI

15 May 2015 Raleigh, NC – RCI has assembled a panel of expert speakers to discuss methods for designing sound building enclosures. Over 300 building designers and construction professionals are expected to be in attendance at the association’s annual Symposium on Building Envelope Technology. The 2015 event will be held November 9-10 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, TN.

The two-day program features 12 educational sessions presented by leading building envelope designers. Speakers offer experience-based insights for specification of sound, durable exterior envelopes. Most programs focus on repair and/or sustainable design methods for strengthening and improving existing structures.

Attendees can earn up to 12 continuing education credits from both RCI and the American Association of Architects.

Leading building envelope product manufacturers will be present with displays of the latest products and services.  An evening reception after the close of the fist day’s meeting will allow those in attendance a chance to network and mingle with fellow professionals.
