The United Architects of the Philippines – Baguio Chapter held its special general meeting last Thursday, August 8, 2016 at the Club Filipino in San Juan City, wherein ALT Cladding Inc. was invited to talk about the technical aspect of Curtain Walls.
The event was done in Manila for the first time as its objective was to gather members of UAP- Baguio who are mostly already based in the Metro. UAP-Baguio President Arch. Shella Soriano formally welcomed the guests, both architects & non-architects to the event.
ALT Technical Director for Sales and Marketing Ranel Opamin discussed about the fundamentals, the technical do’s and don’ts of Curtain Wall designing which could help the architects in their future projects. The technical presentation was followed by an inspirational talk by Arch. Jeremy Acosta, Technical Management Group Head of Taft Property Venture Development Corporation who shared his real-life experiences with few of the biggest Architects in the world. Arch. Adrian Capunfuerza from Pru Life U.K also did a short talk on Financial Wellness for Architects before the event formally ended.
UAP- Baguio is looking at holding their next GMM in Singapore in 2017 to be able to reach their fellow architects who are based there.
