The Office of the Vice President for Student Life and Architecture, Engineering and Construction collaborated over the summer to replace windows at Oxford Houses in a move expected to significantly reduce energy use and save heating and cooling costs. The project involved approximately 16,000 square feet of windows at the facility east of Central Campus on Oxford Road that is home to approximately 350 students, including those in LSA’s Sustainable Living Experience.

  1. Energy effiecient windows have become a very important subject in design all over the world nowadays.

    Many Governments and municipalities have passed building design laws making it compulsory for owner to ensure their glazing area are highly efficient, with the best insulation properties classed as ”Low E glazing”.

    This equates to maximum solar energy relief in the summer months and absolute maximum interior insulation in the cold winter months.

    These systems pay for themselves in saving of cooling bills in summer and heating bills in the winter. These systems are also an advantage to the improvement of the environment due to less power being generated to the running of air conditioners and heating systems.
