The Building Enclosure Council of Kansas City is pleased to announce our next session on April 24th.  We will be gathering at 6pm with the presentation starting shortly afterwards.  Please note that the session will be located at The Kansas City Design Center at 1020 Baltimore Ave on the first level and NOT AIA-KC.

Our guest speakers will be Sanjeev Tankha, Erik Verboon and Silvia Prandelli of Walter P. Moore

** This presentation is eligible for (0) CEU credits. 

The session will focus on: Mind the Gap: Innovations in Structure and Skin through Integrated Design.”

Contemporary buildings require architects, engineers and contractors to collaborate to fulfill the design intent while meeting commercial constraints and performance requirements. We will present our current and past project experience to show how different parties of the AEC industry can work together bridging the gap between design and construction to deliver innovative, add value solutions.
