Metals in Construction 2016 Design Challenge Conference
February 29, 2016 @ The TimesCenter

A panel of some of the best known experts in sustainable design will discuss concepts of retrofitting aging building stock in cities around the world to meet future energy goals.

Vidaris' Architect and building envelope designer Peter Arbour is moderating the 9:30-10:15 AM panel – Case Studies of Energy Retrofits – where he will review case studies from around the world, including examples from entries submitted in the Metals in Construction magazine 2016 Design Challenge, to illustrate the different technologies employed in the energy retrofit of facades and the analytical tools used to evaluate performance. The segment will conclude with a discussion of one of the most thought-provoking criteria of the magazine’s Design Challenge and of facade modernization in general–how designers balance the integration of energy saving systems with the preservation of architectural legacy.

Times: 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM
