Energy saving in buildings is also a hot topic in the industry at the moment. In addition to beauty, there is a need for building design to help reduce energy consumption and indoor air pollution. As the transformation of sustainable green principles takes place in the region, the construction industry will bear a new outlook for the building envelopes and cladding.

The building facade, which is a part of the building envelope, is among the most important components of a building. It plays an important part in complementing the structural form and defining its visual impact on the urban environment.

Reduced energy consumption and indoor air pollution are two major targets the construction industry is vowing to achieve with each project these days. In addition to just being the complementing and aesthetic factor of the building, facades are now being given due importance as a core aspect assisting the entire building structure to become more environmentally responsive and energy efficient.

Innovations and upgraders in facade materials and construction technologies have improved a lot over the last few years; however, the challenges pertaining to protection against fire still loom large. Fire stopping systems and their adequate testing and applications are key to an improvised performance of the building facade. Apart from being aesthetically pleasing, waterproof and insulated facades, dynamic facade is the current buzzword globally. Shading or controlled lighting, ventilation and controlled internal environment has led to the development of the buildings' exteriors, which has been developed with assistance of modern technological advancements.

The conference will have representation from leading architects, facade consultants, developers, main contractors, facade contractors, cost consultants, structural consultants and other key players in the facade industry.
