CRAN: Installation Best Practices, Presented by AIA Potomac Valley

This course provides information about window installation from the perspective of the architect and design professional. Rather than a "how-to" installation training course, information is presented in a format that begins with specifications and detail drawings and ends with job site observation. The presentation follows through the stages in the order that a typical project would progress; highlighting key areas where the architect and design professional can take more of a lead role in the successful design and installation of this critical element in the building envelope.



12:00 – 12:30 PM: Arrival / Box Lunch (Optional)
Attendees have the option to circulate through the showroom with lunch or eat outside.

12:30 – 1:30 PM: Presentation + Q&A by Andersen Windows

  • DESIGN details that will allow the installed windows to perform as intended and as required for the project.
  • IDENTIFY job site best practices that will minimize impact on schedule, budget and product performance.
  • SPECIFY window installation methods and materials that are best suited for each project's exterior wall design.
