9:20 AM PANEL DEBATE: Advancing green buildings in the Middle East: Discussing design strategies to maximise building envelope performance

More attention is being given to the performance of façades and the significant role they can play in improving a building’s thermal efficiency. A thoughtfully designed façade can make a new building work more effectively for its owners, occupants and environment as well as transform the performance of an existing building. Are you relying on building codes more than performance? This panel discusses effective design strategies and materials that enhance
the building’s performance.
