Provides an overview of optimizing commercial fenestration with thermal barriers and high performance glazing in aluminum window framing to maximize daylighting and thermal efficiencies in the building envelope.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
DISCUSS energy efficiency in commercial buildings and initiatives to reduce energy consumption to save costs and support occupant health.
EVALUATE the performance of aluminum window, storefront, and curtain wall fenestration systems in the building envelope through the application of structural thermal barriers and high-performance glazing.
INVESTIGATE performance and health and comfort-related topics in aluminum fenestration systems including material sustainability, thermal and structural performance, noise abatement and condensation resistance.
OBSERVE a range of fenestration product types, measured performance outcomes, energy-savings, LEED and PassiveHouse contribution through the use of multiple case studies.
