Building Enclosure Council: Prefabricated Facades—Unitized Curtain Wall Systems

Please join us as Michael Sloane and Charles Moniz lead a presentation on unitized curtain walls and how to successfully design and implement the system to meet the project performance requirements and schedule. They will also provide guidance on how to choose whether unitized curtain wall is appropriate for your project or whether a stick built system or “mega wall” type assembly is more appropriate. This is the second installment in our series on prefabricated wall assemblies.
