Experts to Share Sustainable Building Practices at Trade Show

The growing popularity of rooftop energy production systems, sustainable and vegetated roofs, and the impact of climate, fire and drainage on overall design standards are just a few topics to be explored during a five-day, intensive, educational program taught by leading authorities within the building envelope industry.

The 25th RCI International Convention and Trade Show offers members of the building envelope and construction communities the latest in industry news and advances. The event is being held at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, Fla., on March 25-30.

Hosted by RCI Inc., the leading international association of professional consultants, architects, and engineers who specialize in the specification and design of roofing, waterproofing, and exterior wall systems, the conference will focus on “Exploring the Sustainability Built Environment.”

Architects, engineers, contractors, facility managers and anyone involved with designing or maintaining commercial or industrial properties are invited to experience more than 30-hours of building envelope design education sessions, live product demonstrations, and a two-day trade show featuring over 130 exhibitors.

“This convention brings together leading experts in roofing, waterproofing and exterior wall technology,” said David Hawn, president of RCI. “With vegetated roofs and alternative energy solutions dominating the headlines, our programming delivers timely and relevant topics for members of the building and construction community.”

This year’s programming concentrates on sustainable building, with sessions designed to educate attendees on the newest code regulations for roofing materials, trends in integrating solar and alternative energy sources into building design, and methods to address wind and fire resistant requirements for vegetated roof systems.
