Jul 22, 2014 -- Raleigh, NC – RCI has assembled a panel of expert speakers to discuss advanced methods for designing sound building enclosures and the merits of contemporary building materials. Over 300 building designers, facility managers and other construction professionals are expected to be in attendance at the professional association’s annual Symposium on Building Envelope Technology. The 2014 event will be held October 20-21 at the Tampa Convention Center and the Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina in Tampa, FL.

The two-day program will feature 12 different educational sessions presented by leading building envelope designers.
