The Amherst Science Center is a recent example of Payette's groundbreaking work in the field of high-performance facade design with an emphasis on sustainability. This panel will discuss Payette's first steps in approaching such projects, the tools at their disposal, and the key role collaborators such as Integral Group have in the successful design and completion of COTE-awarded projects. The presentation will be followed by a moderated discussion and an audience Q & A.
