Windows of Opportunity: Fenestration Innovations
This course shows how window design and manufacturing practices have evolved – advancing technologies in framing materials, coatings and glazings to increase energy efficiency in both historic and new structures.
Harmonizing with History: Window Solutions for Historically Sensitive Settings
Learn about sympathetic design principles for renovation and new construction in
historic settings. Case studies demonstrate window challenges, technical solutions
and replacement window performance in institutional buildings.
Performance Glazing – Coatings, Layers & Gases
1 GBCI CE Hour
This course explores how different aspects of glazing can be manipulated for increased performance, including Low E coatings, glass layering, and gas filled spaces. It also defines criteria for evaluating energy performance and glazing.
Window Installation Fundamentals
Learn the basics about window installation. This program provides a general overview
of best-practice installation procedures for wood windows, aluminum clad windows,
and structural installations, including a discussion on opening and unit preparations.
Fiberglass Composite Windows in Multi-Family Housing
This course will focus on the use of fiberglass composite windows in multi-family housing, with an emphasis on Department of Housing and Urban Development(HUD) housing. This program addresses how to meet HUD fenestration standards by using appropriate technologies.
AAMA 2605: Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts
1 H/S/W LU
This program takes an in-depth look at aluminum as a clad material and as a substrate for high performance finish, as defined by AAMA 2605. Program content addresses aluminum characteristics, sustainability and life cycle, coating options and performance testing criteria.
Historic Renovation: Windows
This presentation reviews window evaluation and rehabilitation planning for historic
buildings. Window replacement is highlighted by case studies which illustrate historic
window profile replication.
Windows & Environmental Goals
1 H/S/W LU
1 GBCI CE Hour
Sustainability issues are changing the building materials landscape. This program considers windows as building components from a variety of environmental perspectives. It addresses large themes like energy usage and measuring environmental impacts, and looks specifically at window performance variables and materials.
IZ Windows and Coastal Codes
This presentation covers hurricane history and patterns, the forces driving code
development, IRC, IBC, and IECC, impact dynamics, IZ zones, and construction options.
Performance Characteristics of Pultruded Fiberglass
1 GBCI CE Hour
This program focuses on the strength, durability, and thermal efficiency of pultruded fiberglass. It describes manufacturing processes and environmental advantages of fiberglass as a window and door material.
Managing Sound Transmission
Learn the importance of building products' acoustical performance and product ratings.
This presentation will cover sound transmission loss, acoustical ratings, and ways
to achieve the best ratings for a building's location and use.
Integrated Performance Standards
This program looks at consolidated performance standards, describing how window
performance is measured and graded. Testing procedures are presented, along with
information on performance factors, product codes and Hallmark certification.
Marvin Factory Tour for Architects
The centerpiece of this day-and-a-half program is a 5 hour tour of the Marvin Windows
and Doors factory in Warroad, MN. Learn about every facet of window manufacturing
from wood processing through final unit assembly.
Cardinal Plant (Tour)
Take a two-hour tour of a Cardinal plant and see how float glass (Menomonie, WI)
or coated glass, Low E (Northfield, MN) is created. Learn about fabrication processes
for tempering, laminating, coating, and insulating glass, and identify common problems
Architectural Tour of Minneapolis
Newsweek named Minneapolis "Design City" in 2006, based on recent contributions
by world class architects including Cesar Pelli, Jean Nouvel and Herzog & deMeuron.
See these and other buildings on a walking tour of architecture in Minneapolis.
The architect-led tour focuses on energy efficiency, durability, safety and other
fenestration issues. A 2 H/S/W version of this tour is also available.
Ripley Factory Tour
This factory tour of Marvin’s patio door manufacturing facility in Ripley, Tennessee gives a thorough overview of the door manufacturing process from wood processing to assembly, including extruded aluminum cladding. Performance- and quality-testing are demonstrated.
