AIA Half-Day Symposium Attracts Local Architects and Industry Professionals

Deerfield Beach, Fla — The Glass+Metal Symposium, a forum for the design and construction of the building envelope, recently concluded two successful events in West Palm Beach and Estero, Florida. In all, over 100 architects and industry professionals attended. The symposiums were held back-to-back (Thursday/Friday) for the first time.

This was the sixth and seventh Glass+Metal Symposium over the last four years. Crawford-Tracey Corporation was the Chair and has been the major supporter of the event since its inception.

“The Southeast offers special challenges in designing, manufacturing and constructing for the region’s storm-prone, hot climate,” says Ray Crawford, President of Crawford-Tracey, a leading Florida-based glazing contractor specializing in unitized and pre-glazed curtain wall and window wall products. “We bring in the industry’s top experts to discuss the latest technological developments and trends in designing the building envelope.”

Sponsors included Viracon, Dow Corning, Eastman, GCI Consulting (C0-Chare) and Crawford-Tracey (Chari); all presented topics related to the design and construction of the building envelope. The Glass+Metal Symposium is a morning event that is AIA accredited for four (4) learning units and qualifies for Health, Safety and Welfare.
