Commercial Wood Window Installation Systems
Water leakage through the building envelope continues to be one of the major reasons for litigation involving architects. This course provides an introduction to water management in commercial window systems. The course begins with a review of the basic principles involved in preventing water leakage in wall systems. The course then explores the ways that these basic principles can and should be applied to windows as well. Water leakage prevention strategies for three distinct window applications - punched openings, ribbon windows and window walls - are explained, including a detailed case study of a large installation in an historic building. The course ends with a review of a series of strategies for ensuring that the performance specified for a commercial window system is actually achieved in the field.
