Why Façade Engineering?
“Façade Engineering is the Art of resolving Aesthetic, Environmental and Structural issues to achieve the enclosure of habitable space”.
Society of Façade Engineering
A building’s skin can define its value, performance and architectural expression.
Façades and building envelopes – which form the outer skins of buildings – project image and creative intent. Increasingly, they are also understood as important environmental moderators and key influencers in project risk and commercial success.
A thoughtfully designed skin can make a new building work more effectively for its owners, occupants and environment. It can also transform the performance of an existing building
Façade cladding systems have very large impacts on all aspects of any building performance. They directly influence peak heating and cooling loads, and indirectly influence lighting loads when day-lighting is considered.
Because they are prominent architectural and design elements and because they influence occupant preference, satisfaction and comfort, the design optimization challenge is more complex than with many other building systems
Glazing and façade systems have very large impacts on all aspects of any building performance. They directly influence peak heating and cooling loads, and indirectly influence lighting loads when day-lighting is considered. In addition to being a major determinant of annual energy use, they can have significant impacts on peak cooling system sizing, electric load shape, and peak electric demand. Because they are prominent architectural and design elements and because they influence occupant preference, satisfaction and comfort, the design optimization challenge is more complex than with many other building systems.
This diploma provides an integral combination of the theoretical and practical knowledge basis for a complete and sound understanding of all disciplines attributing to the operational performance of façades. It examines the complex inter-relationships between those different aspects throughout a consideration of the existing constructions. Knowledge of materials, methods of manufacturing and installation are an essential element in the successful design of façades, and are given a conspicuous place in the diploma which will be expanded though varies factories and site visits.
The main objective of the Training is to provide graduates with a broad understanding and knowledge of facade engineering. This is to ensure that they will have the skill, knowledge and understanding to design, manufacture and construct building facades and cladding. The Training is intended to broaden graduates from their original disciplines to have an understanding of all aspects of the building envelope.

To give a holistic view of the design of buildings.
To develop an understanding of comfort in buildings.
To provide a knowledge of the energy efficiency in buildings Materials and design.
To develop concepts of durability and life cycle costs.
To give knowledge of facade construction and manufacture and of façade materials.
To specify the role of the different participants in the envelope design and construction.
To develop concepts of quality within the design and supply process.
To provide knowledge of the industry structure and culture.
To give an understanding of information sources.
To develop an understanding of critical review.
To develop an ability to write scientific and technical reports

JOIN OUR Participants Group ( Factory or Contracting Company )
• expose and link between your company and these prestigious consultancy firms and manufacturing facilities.
• Enrich your communication opportunities with local market.
• Offering contacts with manufacturers, Fabricators and suppliers with high experience
Your products / Projects has strong relation with other building material, that’s mean your customer must have the knowhow for all other building materials to work professionally with your products.
Example: now most of the recent projects are keen about energy consumption and more toward sustainability (glass, aluminum, coating, stone..,etc.) and the knowledge of the application is so naive .
There are problems occur in some projects, not because of the efficiency of the product, but from operation errors.
As a sponsor, your company branding will appear alongside the global leaders associated with best practices in this field.
highlight your corporate strengths
highlight your knowledge and successful works
Your participation will be a good advertising to your prestigious company and factories, will share your technology and your knowhow for your target market.
Finally, It will highlight your responsibility toward the Community, Especially in engineering and construction industry in general.
