Dow Corning to present views on high-performance building design at The Glass Supper 2013 in London - By Dow Corning

Dow Corning – a global leader in the development of silicon-based innovation for the high-performance building industry – is presenting its views on collaboration for sustainable building design at The Glass Supper 2013, a key industry event to be held November 20 at the Hilton London Canary Wharf Hotel in London, England.

The central theme for The Glass Supper 2013 is “High Performance Façades: What Does This Mean?”

Dow Corning’s Mikkel Kragh, Ph.D., will be among the event’s featured speakers, leading off a slate of presentations about cutting-edge issues that are impacting today’s quest for sustainable building solutions. Drawing on his industry-recognized expertise in façade engineering and what is required for building design teams of the future, Kragh will discuss important perspectives on “The Value of Design.” With building façades accounting for 15 to 25 percent of the total construction costs – and representing a substantial part of the technical and commercial risk on any given project – collaborative design can help reduce costs and mitigate risks, possibly employing high-performance insulation for next-generation curtainwalls; crystal-clear glass bonding materials; and proven, effective structural glazing solutions.

The high-profile event brings together world-class architects and key decision-making glass industry executives, and it provides a unique platform for openly discussing critical issues that influence the future of architectural glass technologies, systems and solutions for high-performance buildings

During the event, Dow Corning’s High Performance Building Solutions business, with its expertise and materials giving rise to many of the world’s most iconic architectural achievements, will actively engage in the face-to-face, energizing discussions about advancements in high-performance building solutions.

Information about Dow Corning’s full range of silicon-based materials for high-performance building is available at
