    Eighteen peer-reviewed papers address the complex issues of design, construction, maintenance, evaluation, and repair of building exterior wall systems, both old and new.

    Topics cover:
    • Survey and assessment techniques
    • Establishing the integrity of cladding systems and components
    • Case studies of system deterioration and remediation
    • Serviceability issues
    • Seismic retrofit
    • Energy savings attributable to facade upgrades
    • Re-cladding of existing buildings.

    System types addressed include facades comprised of vintage masonry, limestone, precast concrete panels, thin stone, exposed cast-in-place concrete, aluminum framing, EIFS, and glass and metal walls.
