Smarter by Design
Designing with View Smart Windows frees you from incorporating shades and blinds, allowing you to show views and buildings in the most attracting way, while still meeting energy codes and building performance requirements.
Comprehensive analysis shows you the difference our Smart Windows can make to your building
We calculate the number of direct glare hours your building will experience during the year based on location.
Thermal Comfort Simulation
We evaluate occupant comfort by stimulating skin level temperatures from direct sun exposure through glazing.
We perform building energy building simulations to determine peak HVAC sizing to help you realize annual energy savings.
We compare the amount of daylight that baseline and dynamic glass options will bring into your space.
Life Cycle Costing Analysis
We perform a 25-year LCC analysis using a real discount rate and standard equipment replacement cycles to calculate the net present value of your investment.
We show you how you can contribute more points to your LEED certification by using dynamic glass.
View allowed us to minimize overall cooling loads, eliminate the need for blinds and reduce the use of artificial lighting while providing constant access to natural light and unobstructed views of the environment. Tenants feel great about the experience, and we remain excited by the future use of smart window technology.

The tendency with blinds is that when the sun comes up, people will pull the blinds down. They’ll stay down for the rest of the day so the view and daylighting in the space is gone for the rest of the day too. With View, the glass automatically adjusts to the light conditions on the exterior and the daylight is maintained throughout the day.
