Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® Returns As Sponsor of A’22 Live In Chicago June 22-25

DALLAS – (June 22, 2022) – Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® (OBE), a leading global supplier of architectural glass, metal and hardware, announced today it is returning as presenting sponsor of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Conference on Architecture 2022. As a strategic partner to the AIA and part of the AIA Manufacturer’s Council, OBE’s sponsorship represents its support of a thriving architecture community and advancing the safety, health, equity, and sustainability of the built world for everyone, everywhere.

The four-day conference returns to a live event in Chicago, kicking off with an Opening Night Celebration sponsored by OBE. The conference brings together leaders in architecture focused on driving new thinking to solve the complex issues facing the design world today. OBE remains at the forefront of putting solutions, tools, resources, and expertise in the hands of architects that help solve these complexities, which will be on display at this year’s A’22.

Through its theme of “Living Intentionally,” OBE looks to show the value of partnering with a consultative solutions provider to maintain design intent and drive the performance of sustainable spaces made for living that go beyond their intended purpose. An art-style exhibit (Booth #1424) has been built around the wide range of OBE solutions that help to create the spaces in which we all live, work, play, heal, and learn, with an emphasis on projects located in and around the host city of Chicago.

In its dedicated Continuing Education (CE) Learning Lounge – adjacent to its booth – attendees will hear from OBE’s team of experts on a variety of topics from antimicrobial coatings to glass performance and the pros and cons of factory glazing and what’s important to know when the project is a retrofit or reuse.

They’ll also have an opportunity to sign up to take more CE courses at no cost, on-demand via OBE Academy and demo SystemSelect, OBE’s game-changing, free web tool that lets architects quickly compare thermal and visual performance details for entire architectural glass and metal systems.
