Designing and Detailing with Glass and Glazing

OnDemand Webinar (62 minutes)

Contract specifications for glass and glazing systems typically detail requirements for a delegated design submittal.

Some of the requirements of delegated design may not be getting done. Manufactured glazing systems may have significant limitations not readily understood when facades are conceptualized in drawings. This material helps architects understand some of the pitfalls of the typical glazing system submittal process. The content explains some limitations associated with common manufactured glazing systems with the aim to help in early conceptual design. It also provides the resources to identify essential information which should be included in a delegated design submittal for both manufactured systems and for structural glass systems.
