Jake chats with Patrik Muzilla from European Arch Supply, based in Massachusettes about the company's high performance windows for passive homes.
Before diving into the window features and benefits, it's important to note the process that the company employs when it comes to purchasing windows.
At the beginning of Jake's project, he sent architectural drawings with specs, performance goals, and needs on exterior and interior.
From there the comapny looked at the blueprint, desired sizes, and vision to provide advice in terms of engineering, feasability and managing costs. Later they sent shop drawings and coordinated an efficient approval process. After dealing with many large U.S. companies, Jake was very impressed with this part of the process. Shop drawings also protect the manufacturer, ensuring everyone is on the same page.
On this particular job, they decided to go with the PVC windows due to cost considersations and the two will take a look at the features. Tune in.
