Facade-Design-and-Engineering-Middle-EastSaving energy, delivering ‘localised’ architecture and implementing innovative facades design are the key areas to be covered in the 5th Annual Façade Design and Engineering Middle East.

The high-level networking conference, taking place in Doha, Qatar on 25 – 26 February 2013 at the InterContinental Doha, will bring together professionals across the construction industry including government officials, developers, main Contractors, consultants, designers and architects.

At the two-day event designers and engineers will discuss the emerging face of structures from stadiums to green buildings and how innovative and ground-breaking facades can turn them into iconic buildings that capture the imagination of users and onlookers.
