Description: The presentation reviews the foundations of glass selection and explores options for meeting both aesthetic and performance goals. Covering the glass manufacturing process and the basics of performance measurement, it also provides a comprehensive overview of float and coated glass choices—and related fabrication decisions—that can affect the final appearance of the glass façade.

In addition, there is a special focus on understanding the variety of performance coatings and customized glass fabrication options.

Learning Objectives:

  1. How all the parts of a glass façade work together to meet project vision and goals.
  2. Glass composition and low-E coatings affect aesthetics and performance.
  3. Identify important design considerations for glass substrates and low-E coatings.
  4. Recognize the ways fabricated glass can affect building aesthetics and performance.
