CONSTRUCT is Our Back-To-School Event of the Year

Fall is always a good time to connect with colleagues and learn something new – likely a feeling left over from our school days. The upcoming CONSTRUCT AEC Education & Expo event in October provides the perfect opportunity to do both. Dedicated to bringing all commercial AEC disciplines together including Architects, Specifiers, Engineers, Contractors, and more to learn, share, and connect, CONSTRUCT is a 3-day show for everyone from the emerging professional to the industry vet.


Dörken is excited to be teaching, again.


This year, we’re thrilled to have James Bourget introduce our new product DELTA®-FASSADE SA – an air- and water-resistive barrier specifically designed for open-joint cladding. James is a principal and construction specialist at RDH and is an instructor at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. He brings over 35 years of experience to the job, and has spent the last number of years mentoring and training members of the building industry. He spends a great deal of time providing hands-on airtightness training and installation demonstration videos for specifiers, builders, and contractors.

At CONSTRUCT, James will teach proper installation techniques for DELTA®-FASSADE SA. His hands-on demonstration will help professionals achieve a superior plane of airtightness and water resistance in walls, around windows, and other various penetrations – ultimately leading to lasting building protection.


Problem solving to protect open-joint cladding designs.


As open-joint cladding design trends continue to thrive, we recognized the need for better protection. By its very nature, open-joint cladding exposes structural components within the wall to wind, water, and sun – jeopardizing building performance. It’s why we developed the new DELTA®-FASSADE SA. Offered alongside DELTA®-FASSADE S, DELTA®-FASSADE SA is a four-layer, self-adhered air- and water-resistive barrier with industry-leading UV stability that helps bring open-joint cladding designs to life.

“At Dörken, we take pride in responding to unique industry needs with superior-performing solutions,” explained Marcus Jablonka, Vice President of Operations and Marketing at Dörken Systems Inc. “By expanding the DELTA®-FASSADE product family, architects and builders now have more choices when it comes to protecting their open-joint cladding systems, no matter how they build.”


Networking, sharing, learning, and earning.


CONSTRUCT provides a platform to share best practices, discover the latest developments, and explore innovative solutions to help solve some of the complex problems the AEC industry faces today. It’s a chance for professionals to get out there and network, refine their skills, and get that competitive edge – all while earning valuable continuing education credits.

This year, CONSTRUCT is offering over 50 accredited sessions and is ensuring none of their sessions conflict with exhibit hall hours, allowing visitors to make the most of both experiences. It truly is the back-to-school event of the year.


CONSTRUCT 2019 is on from October 9-11 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, MD. James Bourget’s live demonstration of DELTA®-FASSADE SA is on October 10, 2019 at 10 a.m. in the Demo & Learning Theater. Download your free expo pass.
