Learning Objectives

After reading this article, you should be able to:

  • Discuss energy efficiency in commercial buildings and initiatives to reduce energy consumption to save costs and support occupant health.
  • Evaluate the performance of aluminum window, storefront, and curtain wall fenestration systems in the building envelope through the application of structural thermal barriers and high-performance glazing.  
  • Investigate performance and health and comfort-related topics in aluminum fenestration systems including material sustainability, thermal and structural performance, noise abatement and condensation resistance.  
  • Observe a range of fenestration product types, measured performance outcomes, energy-savings, LEED and PassiveHouse contribution through the use of multiple case studies.
