The partnership will lead efforts to strengthen understanding among architects of building enclosure technology and performance factors that can create a better built environment.
“When product manufacturers and architects work together, it benefits everyone, including building owners and occupants,” said Robert Ivy, FAIA, EVP/chief executive officer of the AIA. “Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope has an excellent reputation in the design and construction market. We look forward to working with their team to foster dialogue, engagement and innovation with our members.”
Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope is the first building products company to become an AIA Strategic Partner.
