About the panel:
This two person panel discussion will provide practical information on the specification and appropriate installation of windows for Part 9 residential and small commercial buildings. This includes new construction and window replacement in existing buildings. The panel will present on two interrelated, but separate topics – attendees are welcome to stay for the first half or the full extended session.
The first half focuses on installation of windows in new and existing buildings. Al will present information from a consultant perspective, including an overview of the soon-to-be-released HPO guide, Best Practices for Window and Door Replacement – Wood-Frame Buildings. Gordon will provide a manufacturer perspective on best practices.
The second half focused on specification of windows for BC Building Code compliance, including the North American Fenestration Standard (NAFS) included in the 2012 Code; and proposed 2013 energy standards – National Building Code s.9.36 (for residential) and the National Energy Code for Buildings / ASHRAE 90.1-2010 (for commercial).
