Window Design and Construction

Speaker: Sally Fishburn, S.A. Fishburn, Inc., Danville, VT

1 AIA HSW Learning Unit

Sally Fishburn, owner of S.A. Fishburn, Inc., will cover how window construction, design, and style were the product of our industrial heritage. How did industrialization influence window construction? Ms. Fishburn will draw upon her 20 years of experience to help us examine materials including: wood, glass, and paint, along with the architectural details in windows like single vs. double-hung units, balance systems, and hardware.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the history of materials and methods in sash construction
  • Describe how technological advances changed window design in the US.
  • Determine whether sash is original to historic structures based on architectural evidence.
  • Identify historic sash by architectural period details.
