Optimizing Performance in Commercial Fenestration

Sponsored by Azon

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss energy efficiency in commercial buildings and initiatives to reduce energy consumption to save costs while also supporting occupant health.
  2. Investigate performance-, health-, and comfort-related topics in aluminum fenestration systems, including material sustainability, thermal and structural performance, noise abatement, and condensation resistance.
  3. 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.
  4. Analyze a range of fenestration product types, measured performance outcomes, energy savings, and LEED and Passive House contribution through observing multiple case studies.
