Attaching modern facades to buildings requires an understanding of how facade systems perform—from moisture and thermal performance to structural performance. Developing successful facade attachments requires consensus among a number of different parties about the objectives for the facade system. The project team needs to establish who is responsible for various portions of the design and also establish the criteria against which the system’s performance will be compared. In this session, we will explore these issues in depth to set projects up for success.
