Addressing the unique challenges of building tall in historic cities, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat will host “Height and Heritage,” a conference and networking event scheduled for June 11 through 13 in London. Tackling aspects such as the cultural, physical, social and environmental impact such buildings have on densely populated areas, this forum will bring together the world’s leading tall-building owners, developers and influencers to discuss the issues and create a dialogue for projects of the future.
As one of the high-profile sponsors of this event, Dow Corning will participate in the exhibition being run concurrently with the conference program, where examples of the company’s latest innovations for high performance building will be on display. These will include the recently launched Dow Corning® Architectural Insulation Modules featuring Dow Corning® Vacuum Insulation Panel technology, developed to increase the thermal efficiency of façade glazing and enhance design freedom. Dow Corning also will demonstrate the many applications in which silicones have been engineered to help create sustainable façades for enduring beauty, functionality and lower maintenance.
Further details concerning this event, along with online registration, may be found at ctbuh.org. For information on Dow Corning’s silicone solutions for high performance building, please visit dowcorning.com/construction.
