PPG: national architectural manager to speak at Façade Tectonics

Chuck McMullen, PPG national architectural manager for the flat glass Construction Market Team, will speak at Façade Tectonics #7, with a presentation on energy modelling using different low-emissivity glass coatings, the evaluation of spectrally selective tinted glasses with low-E coatings, and the difference between laminated and insulated low-E coatings.

PPG Industries has announced that Chuck McMullen, PPG national architectural manager for the flat glass Construction Market Team, will speak at Façade Tectonics #7, a one-day conference being held 2 December by the University of Southern California (USC) School of Architecture.
McMullen’s presentation, “Energy Efficient Glazing: Commercial Glass Selection Criteria,” will include details on energy modelling using different low-emissivity glass coatings, the evaluation of spectrally selective tinted glasses with low-E coatings, and the difference between laminated and insulated low-E coatings.
Façade Tectonics was originally established as a research focus group and is part of the doctoral programme at the USC School of Architecture. The group conducts two conferences each year with presentations by leading architects, engineers, façade designers and researchers.
