The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is excited to be a Cooperating Organization of the Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI) conference “Resilience of the Integrated Building: A Community Focus” scheduled for April 11 – 13, 2017 in Oklahoma City, OK.


The AEI 2017 Conference provides an opportunity for professionals of the building design and construction industry, including structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers, architects, and construction management professionals to learn about and discuss advanced building design strategies and state-of-the-art building technology practices.


With over 90 presentations and representation from 9 different countries, the technical program will cover the 8 AEI BUILD categories and will feature presentations on building envelopes, building materials, building structural systems, community planning for resilience, forensic studies, and integrated systems.


NFPA will be presenting on our efforts in the area of resilient design and the likely impact on codes and standards. As societal norms and expectations change with respect to fire and other hazards, finding the balance between “minimum” criteria and “optimum” criteria in the codes and standards can become a challenge.


AEI Build draws on the best ideas in design, construction, and maintenance of buildings and offers the Architectural Engineering community a new resource of innovative research, new developments, and best practices in eight practice focus areas of the architectural engineering profession: deliver, enclose, learn, modular, perform, resilient, secure, and sustain.


As part of our sponsorship, AEI will extend the AEI member rate to NFPA member attendees that wish to register for the conference. The $100 discounted registration code is: AEI17K100.


We hope to see you there!
