Glazing System & Design AIA CES Course

Course Description

Today’s Architect/Designer has some important decisions to make when it comes to fenestration systems within the building envelope. Energy efficiency of the glazing system and quality of daylight entering the interior environment plays a large role in user comfort. Evaluating the correct fenestration system to use before the building is constructed can not only save time but money in both the initial design and over the building life cycle.
