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.
• Specify window installation methods and materials that are best suited for each project’s exterior wall design
• Design details that will allow the installed windows to perform as intended, and as required for the project
• Provide valuable guidance to the project team throughout the installation process
• Identify job site best practices that will minimize impact on schedule, budget, and product performance
