Get Attached and Tinted: Efficient Window Solutions for Better Buildings

Join Seattle 2030 and BetterBricks for breakfast to learn about the latest window technologies available on the market, from window attachments to replacement windows with variable tint to electrochromic glass in self-tinting windows; there’s an efficiency solution and price point for every building.

In this technology session, you’ll learn about window attachment solutions including low-e storm windows and secondary glazing systems. For about half the cost of a full window replacement, these window attachments can help you stop wasting energy, increase tenant comfort, reduce noise, and lower operating costs.

You’ll also hear about a new generation of architectural glass that tints in response to outdoor conditions which reduces heat and glare, resulting in greater energy efficiency and tenant comfort.
