   In this podcast, we discuss new Int’l Code Council codes, AAMA standards, fenestration technology, and how these factors are going to combine to reduce building energy consumption by 30% and exceed current LEED requirements. Mike’s involvement with the various code-development committees and as an AAMA board member provides him with insight that will help specifiers identify fenestration that that will meet energy-code requirements, likely exceed LEED requirements, and generally help develop efficient and sustainable facilities.
