Membership Levels and Benefits

The Facade Tectonics Institute (FTI) is committed to building a dynamic member-based research and education institute dedicated to the primary role the building envelope plays in the resilience, sustainability, energy efficiency, durability, and occupant health of buildings and urban habitat. Our conferences, educational activities, publications, and newsletters play an essential role in building a collaborative, action-oriented dialogue and network to bridge our fragmented construction industry. Our work will accelerate collaboration, innovation and result in tangible improvements within the built environment for the benefit of all stakeholders.

The Institute’s membership is made up of a broad-based coalition of industry leading organizations and individuals which span the building profession, industry, academia and ownership, across a great diversity of building types, systems, products and materials. The Institute is explicitly committed to remain independent of the commercial interests of its membership and will not favor the interests of any of its members, materials or technologies. Rather, the Institute’s mission involves accelerating the evolution of building facade technology in support of a resilient and sustainable built environment, to the benefit of its entire membership, all stakeholders and all of humanity.

To become a member of the Institute, please complete the application form on the last page of the Membership Packet and submit to Caroline Szuch at cszuch@facadetectonics.org.
