Multifamily housing construction presents an array of design and code challenges. These include the need to balance safety and accessibility issues with occupant comfort and design appeal. Energy efficiency and environmental stewardship are also key considerations. This course will explore the benefits of using vinyl window products to meet the unique goals of multifamily housing. It will also provide guidelines to help architects specify vinyl window systems that best meet a project’s performance, aesthetic needs, and budget criteria while benefitting owners, occupants, and the environment.
