About our Sponsor: Southwall Technologies, a subsidiary of Eastman Chemical Company, is a world leader in high performance glazing technologies. The company developed and commercialized the world's first low-e coatings for insulating glass products. Subsequent to that the company has lead market innovation
introducing the world's first solar control low-e coatings, the first low-e coatings used in laminate glass, and the first "high R-value" insulating glass products, capable of providing net energy gain in field
applications. The company has a global presence. 

Maximizing Glazing Performance With Suspended Coated Films

Course DescriptionThis course explains how suspended coated films can facilitate maximum thermal performance, and how insulating glass with suspended coated films create real design flexibility. The course begins with detailing basic glazing technology and ends with profiles of specific projects that feature suspended coated films.


Objectives: At the end of this course, participants will: 

  • Understand the "component building blocks" employed to maximize insulating glass' thermal performance, and will be able to evaluate insulating glass performance based upon use of these building blocks. 
  • Understand how suspended coated films can be used to maximize insulating glass' energy performance characteristics, and how these characteristics can be used to expand design freedom, and reduce building energy consumption & carbon footprint.
  • Understand how to improve glazing performance such that fenestration can potentially outperform walls and elimination of perimeter heating can be justified. 
  • Understand how suspended coated films can improve "non-energy" performance of fenestration such as: 
    • UV blockage 
    • Improved acoustic performance 
    • Reduced condensation 
    • Improved occupant comfort.

Presented by: Kurt Russell has been working with suspended coated films for more than 27 years in Europe, the Middle East and North America.  His experience includes manufacturing, quality control, field services and technical sales.

Murphy Brothers Contracting: A Tradition of Quality


Murphy Brothers Contracting Project Featured in Greenwich Magazine


We are delighted to note that Greenwich Magazine chose to feature The Shore Road Project in their most recent issue. Designed by architect Rex Gedney, this home is the HBRA 2014 HOBI Award winner for "Best Green Energy-Efficient Custom Home".  The project was also recognized by ICF Builder magazine as the  "Best Small Residential Project", for which the judges cited the complexity of the design, the striking architecture, and the challenges the construction team overcame to set a new standard for the entire ICF industry.  Our special thanks to Greenwich Magazine and writer, Mary Kate Hogan. Look for the June issue of Greenwich Magazine, on stands now!
