UNC Charlotte Green Building Tour

Posted By Adriana Vargas, National Fenestration Rating Council, Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Last week in Charlotte, the National Fenestration Rating Council not only celebrated its 30th anniversary, but also debuted a new Green Track education series. Things kicked off with a tour of a newly constructed recreation center on the University of Charlotte campus, featuring top-of-the-line fenestration products to maximize lighting and energy efficiency.

The structure will host a variety of health and exercise activities, with an indoor track, pool, yoga studio and more, all surrounded by windows to let in as much natural light as possible. The project aims to receive three Green Globes as a measure of its energy efficiency and includes high-performance, ultra-clear glazing to maximize visibility and Low-E coatings to help control the internal temperature and reduce the strain on the building’s HVAC.

NFRC’s fair, accurate and credible ratings of windows, doors and skylights are a standard-setter for certifying products that keep out heat harsh summer months and keep heat in during the winter. The UNC Charlotte University Recreation Center shows the potential real-world, healthy living and energy-efficient spaces that can be created with products made, tested and certified by NFRC members.
