Glass is the most common and least understood material in the construction industry.
Selecting glass is one of the most important and far-reaching decisions in a commercial project. The choice impacts human comfort, energy efficiency, productivity and overall design aesthetics. It also affects mechanical HVAC design and loads, daylighting, interior condensation control, ultraviolet fading and sound control.
