Construction is an important part of the industrial sector and one of the core sectors of India's economy. Construction spending is expected to increase to US$370 billion by the end of 2014, with residential totalling US$63 billion and non-residential registering US$307 billion. This represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.3%. With such a massive construction spending there is an ongoing challenge between architects and consultants to build world class structures that not only look good but also stand out from other structures, and at the same time comply with the construction and sustainability codes of India. Today, the construction of the building shell is a greater challenge than ever for planners. As well as the diversity of functions that need to be performed, the specific properties and applications for the various materials play a crucial role in the design of the facade.
Facades Engineering & Design India - 2014 will cover the basic principles of planning and design of facade structures, alongside selected important aspects for facade planning in the 21st century, such as multiple skin facades made from glass, manipulator systems and solar technology. A wide selection of example applications will be illustrated during the summit to understand the principles and innovations behind many solution approaches.
