Live Webinar- High Performance Building Assemblies Part 3: Making glazing less opaque


Tue, Oct 9th, 2018 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PT)

Glazing is by far the most complex single component of our enclosures and it must be climate-tuned to boot. Getting the amount, the location, and the performance attributes of glazing is key to high performance buildings. In this webinar, we will work through glazing technologies and options, using web-based glazing tools to optimize both the glazing and the opaque portions of our wall assemblies.

Join BuildingGreen's Peter Yost for the third part of a four-part webinar series on high performance building assemblies. When you register for part 3, you will receive links to watch recordings of parts 1 and 2.

Part 4: Thermal Comfort – Connecting physics, people, and performance
