Designing, specifying and constructing high-performance wall assemblies is a critical component of today’s sophisticated building design. Selecting the right systems and products can lead to a more sustainable structure, increased occupant comfort and safety, and even jobsite efficiencies that result in cost savings for contractors and building owners. With this in mind, ClarkDietrich Building Systems, will dedicate its time at CONSTRUCT 2016 to “Wall Talk” an initiative to jump start industry dialogue about the intricacies of proper wall assembly design.
While attendees will notice the “Wall Talk” theme featured prominently throughout the event, the epicenter for discussions will be the ClarkDietrich booth #628. Visitors will get a first-hand look at the systems, tools and services the company offers to support architects and specifiers build better walls and ultimately better building.
“Designing high performing wall systems has become increasingly complex in the commercial environment, especially in vertical markets such as healthcare, education and hospitality where there are strict requirements regarding occupant safety, sound ratings and long-term durability of construction materials,” said Terry Westerman. “With our Wall Talk theme, we hope to not only shed light on these issues, but demonstrate how our innovative systems and tools can help support architects and specifiers in the design and specification of high performance wall systems.”
ClarkDietrich has long been on the forefront of steel framing innovation, most recently introducing ProSTUD with DiamondPlus Coating.
