Window frames delivered
So the window frames have finally been delivered and they should begin installing the beginning of next week. Framing the rough openings took a bit longer than expected as the construction tolerances needed to be spot on (within 1/4") to make sure the continuous transom was dead level to fit the doors and windows. The glazing system we selected is a thermally broken, aluminum storefront system with front set glass. It will have a 1" IGU (insulated glazing unit) with a "low-e" coating to help with thermal performance. The frames will be installed first with the IGU's to be ordered after field placement and any adjustments.
