On Wednesday, April 8, EuroLine Windows was pleased to host a Lunch & Learn seminar for students from BCIT’s Building Science graduate program (Masters of Science and Master of Engineering). Sixteen students and two instructors gathered at our facility for a workshop on building envelope and high performance windows. This seminar aimed to provide a direct illustration on how window and wall elements are joined and operate as a system.
The session started out with a plant tour, where the students had the opportunity to observe firsthand, the process of manufacturing windows and doors. They experienced the entire operation from start to finish, beginning at our state-of-the-art cutting and processing centre where the profile base is cut to size, through the welding process, gasket station, hardware installation and ending at the glazing area. Students were also shown the foil testing lab and the water testing station.
During lunch, two representatives from PFG Glass, gave an interesting presentation that explained the glass production in general, and focused on energy-saving options such as triple-paned glazing, and LoE coatings, in regards to the new BC and Vancouver building code bylaws.
We would like to thank: Hamid Heidarali and Maureen Connelly, from BCIT, for bringing us this opportunity; Caitlin Hunter and Amy Bell from PFG Glass, for taking the time to speak at our Lunch and Learn session and, of course, to the BCIT Masters students who came out to learn about windows!
