SOM Senior Specifications Writer and Associate Ben Caldwell will lead a panel discussion and presentation at this year’s SpArc Symposium in Austin, Texas. Caldwell’s topic, NFPA 285 and the IBC 2012 restrictions on using plastics and combustible material in exterior wall assemblies, is based on his recent white paper on the same subject. Other issues addressed at the three-day event will include the benefits and challenges of integrating specifications with BIM and specifications writing for high performance building envelopes.
The SpArc Symposium brings together architects and specification writers to “share best practices, present case study driven data and explore novel approaches that speak to the industry's most challenging topics.”
