In the six years since the founding of City Homes, the Master Builder has always made a conscious effort to prioritize using Edmonton-based trades on all of their projects. Being an Edmonton-based company itself, Sales and Marketing Manager Jason Hill knows how keeping business local helps so many more who are involved. This is also where City Homes’ relationship with All Weather Windows begins.

Just got off a stakeholder conference call with Natural Resources Canada’s Jamie Hulan, a director in the Equipment Division that is overseeing the Pan-Canadian Framework Roadmap thing. One of his co-chairs, Martin Luymes of the Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute, called for everyone to hold off talking about funding for now. To Hell with that.
Jeff Haberer from Trulite and Paul Bush from Vitro chaired a joint meeting of the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance Technical Services Committee and the American Architectural Manufacturers Association Glass Council at their Summer Conference in Victoria. The room of over 50 delegates heard about progress on PIB migration, expansion of structural standards to address jumbo and thin glass, acoustical ratings, vacuum insulating glass guidelines and more. Bush noted that the IGMA's technical task forces have often done most of the heavy lifting to research and write AAMA standards for some time.
The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance Emerging Technologies Committee was chaired by David Cooper of Guardian. Co-chair Helen Sanders of Technoform was unable to attend.

Attendees at the joint American Architectural Manufacturers Association/Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance Summer Conference in Victoria got a dose of adrenaline from the Day 1 keynote speaker, Patrick Moore. Moore, a co-founder of Greenpeace who left the organization over its opposition to plastics and now works with the Vinyl Institute, delivered a provocative talk challenging a swath of environmentalist shibboleths, including dismissal of climate change as an urgent problem.
Margaret Webb and Janice Yglesias, executive directors of the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance and the American Architectual Manufacturers Association, respectively, opened the first day of official business at the joint AAMA/IGMA Summer Conference with a report to membership. Most of the discussion addressed progress and plans for the merger of the two association, which members will vote on in July. If approved, the new merged organization will be called the Fenestration Glazing Industry Alliance.
