  • 22 Apr 2022

Schüco is delighted to be the presenting partner of the Manchester edition of Zak World of Façades, the international conference series on façade design and engineering. The event will be held on 4 May at the Mercure Piccadilly, Manchester.

The one-day conference will gather together architects, developers, contractors, façade and structural consultants amongst others to attend panel discussions and network with industry peers and leading manufacturers. Talks will be given by a selection of experts in façade design, engineering, procuring and execution.


Hendrik Köster, Head of Business Area – Internet of Façades at Schüco International will talk about ‘Unleashing the Power of Digital Building Envelopes’. He will discuss the benefits of digitalising façades and the new Schüco Internet of Façades ID tags and their functionality.

Attendees will hear Hendrik explore the possibilities of real-time data on façades. He will argue that digital building envelopes could become instrumental in collecting and communicating information in the future, making urban spaces more efficient, more sustainable and better places to live.

Visitors will be able to see the Internet of Façade tags first hand at the event to understand how they work on a façade element.
