Meeting Recap – April 28, 2016

1Building Envelope Training

The Georgia Chapter of ICRI held its monthly luncheon on April 28, 2016 at the Maggiano’s in Perimeter Mall. Mickey Leso, Building Envelope Department Manager of NOVA Engineering and Environmental, presented on building envelop training and the components of façade types.

The science and performance of building envelopes was detailed as well as the different types and typical issues associated with the components. These components help provide protection to the concrete within the structure as well as other structural components, not to mention the patrons. Building facades go a long way to help protect concrete to minimize the drastic concrete repairs that can occur if not properly protected.
