Design Pitfalls of Storefronts & Curtain Walls
January 21 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
This is a comprehensive journey that starts out as performance failures of storefront and curtain walls.
These failures typically fall into the categories of leaks and thermal issues and sometimes material finish.
We will be looking at basic building science, general installation methods of frame and glazing, water control and condensation resistance.
- Reporting the performance problem to the general contractor.
- Review how experts are sent to investigate the problem.
- Writing a report about the investigation.
- Providing an action plan for remediating the performance problems.
