On January 16, 2018 at 12pm, AIA Philadelphia and The Building Enclosure Council of Philadelphia are holding an event, Building Enclosure Fundamentals: Integrating Proper Building Enclosure Into the Design Process, at the Center for Architecture and Design. The event is free, and lunch will be provided.

The goal of this session is to provide attendees with a basic understanding of the critical decision process that must be made regarding the building enclosure as well as gain an understanding how these decisions may have a profound effect upon future design decisions including building performance.

The session will highlight technologies that can assist architects to address proper building enclosure and to ensure high performance design.
