Solar Shading Retrofits
In collaboration with 3form and POHL, ITAC focused operable rainscreen technologies and energy efficiency quantification for existing and proposed strategies in the companies’ product line. ITAC utilizes a 5-stage process of product development including:

1.Concept development
2.Concept refinement
3.Product development
4.Commercialization
5.Launch

Solar Shading is currently in the product development phase.  This project is in connection with a course taught each year called ITAP, integrated technology in architecture program that merges students with industry to explore innovative technical issues related to energy performance and construction productivity.
