“The FGIA FENBC Region is excited to meet in-person once again,” said Amy Roberts, FGIA Director of Canadian and Technical Glass Operations. “This one-day event is packed with important industry topics for both residential and commercial segments.”

A residential track of the event will offer a presentation titled, “Enclosure Mitigation Considerations for Wildfires” while a commercial track will host “Bird-friendly Glazing, Designs and Standards,” a panel discussion. The preliminary schedule will also include topics like:

  • Recruitment and retention strategies related to workforce challenges
  • Embodied carbon and environmental requirements
  • Acoustic requirements and product testing

Finally, the Codes Talkers panel discussion will feature critical residential and commercial challenges in the codes arena. Jun’ichi Jensen, Director of Codes and Standards at the Building and Safety Standards Branch of the Ministry of Housing, and Neil Norris, Associate Building Science Specialist at RDH Building Science, will be available to answer code-related questions. Additionally, Dave Goldsmith, Senior Code and Compliance Engineer at Ply Gem Canada, will speak about a National Building Code operable windows code change request pertaining to fall prevention. Jeff Baker, Engineer at WESTLab, will provide an Energy Code update on a national level.

At the last FGIA FENBC Region event in April, the region recognized the career of Zana Gordon, former executive director of FENBC, who retired last year. The technical summit’s preliminary schedule is now available, and the final schedule will be published in a few weeks.
