On Friday, July 29, Region II held its annual meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn Airport/Millennium Center in Atlanta, GA. The meeting was an all-day session with 67 attendees and 15 tabletop sponsors. During the morning learning sessions, Mike Maguire with Roxul presented information on insulating alternatives to foam plastics, and Jennifer Kelly of USG highlighted technologies and challenges relating to air barriers.
Immediately after the business meeting, Christopher Norris (Walter P. Moore & Associates) delivered an in-depth presentation on performance modeling and mock-up testing of custom curtain wall systems. Closing out the afternoon were Derek Cundiff (Cornett & Cundiff, Inc.) and April McKelvey (Monarch Consulting Services, LLC), who outlined many of the lesser-known (or lesser-enforced) code requirements for roof replacement projects.
