Fenestration’s Role in Resilient Design (CE)
April 25

Presented by Loewen Windows of Mid-Atlantic

Free. Virtual.

This course will explore the growing importance of resilient building design as a result of accelerating climate change and extreme weather events. We will discuss resilient design principles and fenestration's role in resilient design, including; the importance of building product durability, energy efficiency, storm and hurricane protection, and how simple, passive, and flexible systems are more resilient. The course will also explore the future of fenestration and emerging window technologies that will be able to respond to climate and weather concerns as well as occupant preferences.


Learning Objectives:
1. Analyze the importance of resilient design and how to apply resilient design principles in the built environment.
2. Examine fenestration’s role in resilient design and considerations for specifying highly durable and energy efficient products.
3. Identify high performance windows and door products that should be considered when designing for resiliency.
4. Explore the future of fenestration and emerging window technologies that can respond to climate and occupant preferences.
