Wausau will be exhibiting at AIA Expo2010 in booth #2553

Wausau presents new AIA/CES program:
“Window Selection for Sustainability and Long-Term Performance”

“Window Selection for Sustainability and Long-Term Performance” is a new, educational presentation available through Wausau Window and Wall Systems. As a registered American Institute of Architects’ Continuing Education System (AIA/CES) provider, Wausau’s AIA-approved program addresses fenestration in commercial and institutional building designs, such as government offices, health care facilities, schools and universities.

Those who attend and successfully complete the one-hour course will learn how to:
* Distinguish between fenestration types
* Establish appropriate window selection criteria
* Use industry standards to define windows’ performance levels, such as energy efficiency
* Compare fenestration products
* Understand the impact of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Green Building Rating System™ on window selection

To record their new knowledge, participants will receive a Learning Unit credit for Health/Safety/Welfare and Sustainable Design, 1.0 LU/HSW/SD. AIA-registered architects are required to earn a total of 18 LUs in a calendar year. Of these, eight must be in Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) subjects. Sustainable Design (SD) is a subset of HSW. Four of the eight HSW LUs must meet the established SD guidelines for mandatory continuing education. For additional information, please visit http://www.aia.org/education/index.htm.

“Beyond these educational presentations, Wausau’s long-standing commitment to architects, and to the whole building team, includes providing consultations, pre-bid design engineering assistance, and 24/7 access to product details, technical specifications and sustainable design information,” says Steve Gille, Wausau’s education market manager.

Other AIA/CES programs offered by Wausau include:
* Curtainwalls: Products, Performance and Practicalities (1.0 LU/HSW)
* Daylighting and Integrated Façade Design (1.0 LU/HSW/SD)
* Understanding U-Factors (1.0 LU/HSW/SD)
* Designing Fenestration for Blast Hazard Mitigation (1.0 LU/HSW)
* Glass: The Right Choice (1.0 LU/HSW)
