    Building Retrofits: Getting the Whole Picture on Window Replacement (Print Version)

    When undertaking a significant energy retrofit project, architects employ various tools to help them successfully identify potential areas for improvement. Some of the most valuable assets in an architect’s toolbox are companies that provide building analysis. A building analysis service team that can completely test, measure, and document the gaps and opportunities for energy savings in a building will provide the architect with a wealth of information and resources needed to successfully complete the project. However, when it comes to windows, traditional building analysis services often fail to deliver a complete evaluation of the building, and miss several of the key components that can impact energy use. Besides the energy efficiency rating of the window - other considerations like occupant comfort and air tightness should be included when designing a window replacement strategy during a retrofit project. Architects who choose a building analysis service that provides a complete evaluation of the windows and fenestration in the building will have better information, more options, and a greater chance of creating a successful energy efficient design that provides a faster return-on-investment for property owners.

    Sustainable Choices in Luxury Fenestrations (Print Version)

    Luxury homes offer the architect, builder and buyer a unique opportunity to create dwellings that are distinctive, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Increasingly, sustainable design is becoming more important to luxury home owners. Opulence does not need to be wasteful of natural resources. Even large floor plans can prove to be conservation-minded if the architect, builder and homeowner decide to pursue a “green” route. Designing a luxury home that is environmentally responsible must take into account many aspects of the building process including design, construction practices, air sealing and insulation, and material selection. Windows sit at the crossroads of sustainable material selection and luxury design. The right window can reduce energy use, contribute to green building goals and also provide the touch of quality and beauty a luxury home requires. Enroll

    Compression-Seal Technology: A Sustainable Solution for High-Performance Windows and Doors (PRINT COURSE)

    Recent changes in energy standards and codes, and federal and voluntary initiatives, are transforming the entire building landscape. In the past, a variety of different state and local codes have existed but there is now a trend towards increasing the standardization of even more stringent codes. Window and door systems require increasingly higher performance in order to achieve the new codes, standards and mandates.

    Architects and engineers will need to identify and specify high-performance window systems that meet the new energy performance criteria. High-performance windows and doors with compression-seal technology deliver solutions for energy, noise, security, blast, comfort and other challenges. Enroll

    Benefits of Daylight and Fresh Air in Residential Design

    Through this course you will learn how skylights can contribute and provide the benefits of natural ventilation, daylight and energy efficiency to ensure good health and wellbeing in residential applications.

    Indoor climate combines all the elements of temperature, humidity, lighting, air quality and ventilation in residential buildings. Most of these elements relate closely to energy balance, health and comfort effects on building occupants.Moisture intrusion in a wall system can cause numerous building defects as well as health ailments for building occupants. This course will review the cause and effects of moisture intrusion and will discuss how fiber cement panels can be used as a rainscreen to mitigate this moisture. We will identify different rainscreen technologies and ASTM and AAMA testing standards that measure their performance. By the end of the course you will understand basic design approaches and guidelines for installing fiber cement panels as a rainscreen. Enroll

    Fiberglass Manufacturing and Window Performance Testing

    Fiberglass windows & doors were developed as the demand for a strong, durable and low maintenance frame type that would be more sustainable and environmentally friendly than vinyl, wood or aluminum frames. The global green building movement is spurring demand for sustainable products with low life cycle costs—and more mainstream window and door manufacturers are introducing fiberglass profiles to meet the demands of most architects and designers.
