Demystifying Building Envelope Design Process for the AEC panel email header

Dive into the Architect's Design Process

Join us for an insightful webinar panel discussion on the Building Envelope Design Process in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry. This webinar brings together distinguished architects from various disciplines to share their expertise and experiences in product selection processes with a particular emphasis on early-stage design.

Designed specifically for Building Product Manufacturers (BPMs), this webinar aims to provide valuable insights into the challenges architects face during the early design and product selection phases. By understanding these challenges, BPMs can better align their products with architects' needs and increase the likelihood of their selection for architectural designs.
