This course is registered with AIA for 1 HSW hour and will focus on the use of fiberglass composite windows in multi-family housing, with an emphasis on Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) housing. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and HUD have rigid standards for window construction and installation, such as fiberglass cladding colors, water-repellent millwork, air leakage, water penetration, structural loading, weather stripping and sealed insulating glass. We will discuss how the minimum property standards can be met by using appropriate technologies. We will review several multi-family case studies and how fiberglass composite windows were applied in each of these projects. This course will cover trends in the multi-family housing industry, FHA window standards, fiberglass composite and other enhanced window technologies, as well as the case studies demonstrating how fiberglass composite windows can be incorporated into multi-family housing projects. Take the course.
