Catch the Buzz Experience

2017 AIA MN Catch the Buzz event

Pooling the expertise of great minds, markers and a giant marker board generated quite a BUZZ at AIA MN. [Well, the tasty craft brew added to the fun, too!]

We’re still Buzzin’! Aren’t you?

If you joined Empirehouse at our new, double-wide interactive “Catch the Buzz” experience at the 2017 AIA MN Conference Exhibit Hall Tuesday-Wednesday, November 14-15, you’ll know what we mean. This was Empirehouse’s 40th consecutive year participating at AIA MN, and we wanted to do something completely new, interactive, and fun—just for you!

Architects, General Contractors, Estimators, Project Managers, Field Superintendents, and Lead Glaziers joined our 20-foot think tank, marker board work space and pooled their expertise to bring solutions to your glass, glazing and enclosure details.

Many new connections were made, many reconnections with old friends and colleagues were rekindled, and many came with questions and left with new enclosure ideas to realize their design intent.

Thanks to Special Guests HGA Vice President and Architect John Cook, Mortenson Construction Senior Project Manager Erin Saewert, Goldray Glass Vice President Ted Jones, and YKK Architectural Representative Jeremy Nordby, and to everyone who came and participated in this fun and interactive experience.
