Performance considerations for historic window replacement and repair

From the stained glass windows that welcome variegated light into cathedrals to the steel-framed geometric designs of Art Deco and the bold leaded glass of the Prairie style, windows have served to define the character of buildings and spaces since the advent of glazed fenestration.

In the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) realm, the same trend is helping make project teams and buildings more successful.
