The course will compare the embodied and operating carbon impacts of window restoration, secondary glazing, and replacement windows as well as emerging glazing technologies.

Several in-depth case studies will present the analysis of carbon impact and will explain the full carbon impact of each alternative in terms of material selection and ongoing operational efficiency.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe which treatment has the lowest impact on embodied carbon and operational carbon and the benefits provided by emerging glazing materials.
  • Explain how the historic restoration of existing windows can provide climate change benefits in addition to the preservation of the building aesthetics.
  • Consider the negative impact that carbon usage has on climate change and building occupant health.
  • Describe how material reuse in window repairs minimizes the environmental and health impacts in adaptive restoration projects.
