The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and Dallas-based Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope announced a continuation of their strategic partnership during 2020. The partnership is in its second year and will continue to focus on fostering dialogue, engagement and innovation between Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope and AIA architect members. Additionally, AIA and Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope will be researching how the performance of building façades (envelopes) can be optimized for energy efficiency and carbon reduction.

Robert Ivy, FAIA, EVP and CEO at AIA, said, “Access to innovative teams and resources that assist our members in their careers and business is a top priority. Having a reputable partner like Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope, who understands our need to serve the architect community and is actively engaged in key industry topics, helps us fulfill a critical part of our mission.”

Nathan Creech, president at Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope, said, “We look forward to continuing our partnership with AIA and furthering our collaboration and commitment to the architect community. We’ve spent the last year better understanding the current challenges architects are facing in the built environment. As a result, we’re making improvements in product innovation, better addressing sustainability and providing the resources that will support architects in responding to the needs of the market.”
