Explore the AERC case studies below to gain a better sense of how window attachment projects are used in commercial spaces and how they can improve energy efficiency, occupant comfort and more.
The 400 Market Street project utilized secondary glazing systems into the commercial office retrofit project in Philadelphia, PA. The 12-story building experienced significant energy savings as a result of the installed secondary glazing system.
