Following its successful participation last year, GLASSCON was honored to be included in the Facade Engineering Forum held in Cairo. The forum event took place on 24 February 2018
at the Egypt International Exhibition Center, as part of the 9th WinDoorEx + Glass & Aluminium
exhibition event. This exclusive workshop hosted various esteemed industry market experts, engineers and executives through the Glass, Doors, Windows, Facade Technology and Aluminium industry from Egypt and abroad.The Egyptian economy is booming and the construction industry is taking the lead. With the rising population and current economy, real estate has become the favored investment for both local and foreign investors. As new developments are planned almost every day, facade engineering is a major contributor and influential segment in the construction sector which is growing rapidly in Egypt.For GLASSCON, the participation at the Facade Engineering Forum was very rewarding. We participated in the forum with a keynote titled “Form Follows Energy”, discussing how the Egyptian facade market must correlate with the European energy laws and regulations, to provide a better working or living environment to building habitats. Our representative, in his session, was able to analyze the challenges associated with building energy efficiency, providing insights into innovative facade engineering that ensures superior building enclosure performance.Ultimately it was a constructive and beneficial experience for GLASSCON. The Façade Engineering Forum was a great opportunity to share in-depth knowledge of recent innovations and facade trends.Looking forward to see in Cairo at WinDoorΕx 2019!
