Arch Nexus, a Sacramento based architecture firm, prides itself on creating and regenerating the world in which we live. They exemplified this by achieving Living Building Certification for their Sacramento office. The Living Building Challenge is the most challenging regenerative design certification in the world. It requires sustainable features to be woven into every square-foot of the structure, including the windows. JELD-WEN’s commitment to the environment through energy efficiency and sustainability made them the perfect choice for this project. JELD-WEN manufactured windows out of FSC® certified wood and energy-efficient glass to meet the Living Building Challenge requirements. To see precisely how Arch Nexus created a sustainable building using JELD-WEN windows and other regenerative designs, watch this video.

Here are two that can make a big difference in your next project.One is wood. One is virtually indistinguishable from wood.Both outperform all expectations. © 2020 JELD-WEN, Inc.
