This course provides information about window installation from the perspective of the architect and design professional. Rather than a “how-to” installation training course, information is presented in a format that begins with specifications and detail drawings and ends with job site observation. The slides follow through the stages in the order that a typical project would progress; highlighting key areas where the architect and design professional can take more of a lead role in the successful design and installation of this critical element in the building envelope.
When you complete this course you will be able to:
1. Specify window installation methods and materials that are best suited for each project’s exterior wall design.
2. Design details that will allow the installed windows to perform as intended, and as required for the project.
3. Provide valuable guidance to the project team throughout the installation process.
4. Identify job site best practices that will minimize impact on schedule, budget and product performance.
