Learn the science behind human comfort and building health in this Tuesday, March 24 Lunch & Learn, "Performance Glazing & Building Envelope Optimization."

Speaker Marco Vincent will explore how glazing technology has evolved over the past 40 years, its applications today, and where it is heading in preparation for the MN 2030 Challenge.

After addressing LEED, PHIUS, and EnergyStar in relation to fenestration, the session also will cover the Low E coating application process and how process and performance affects buildings in various micro-climates.

This analysis considers NFRC variables, IECC energy code compliance, and how windows accommodate building envelopes for Net Zero design.

Learning objectives

  • Generally understand how sputtered glass coatings work, and how they can be optimized in different climates
  • Explain the relativity and meaning of each NFRC label variables in relation to glass
  • Choose Low E coatings that will help earn LEED points in several categories
  • Better balance building/energy performance with human comfort and IEQ
