Looking Through Windows — Part 7

first_imgMais voyons — on ne travaille pas le mois d’aoûtNot yet.Like many manufacturers throughout France, Bieber shuts production down during three weeks in August for employee vacations. We were hoping that Bieber would make our windows before the vacation period. Benoit advised us that Bieber’s supplier had not provided the aluminum cladding for our windows before the start of their August shut-down.Production of our windows would not be completed until the first week in September. With a three-week trans-Atlantic shipping, we should get our Bi-Passif windows on site by the end of September.I initially thought that would delay our ability to do our first blower-door test. But as we have learned, nothing, absolutely no construction-related activities happen on schedule.For example, the framers have waited for over one week to receive the necessary 60-degree hangers to complete the floor framing. When the hangers finally arrived from Coastal Forest Products, they were a face-mount rather than the top-mount we expected. Why can’t Coastal provide the proper components for the floor framing package they designed? We have been delayed for nearly two weeks on completing the floor deck, which delays erecting the walls, which delays placing the roof trusses, which … well, you get the picture. But you’ll have to accept different glass …Not so, as it turned out.A few weeks later, Benoit called to say there was a supplier issue on the 0.63 SHGC glass that Bieber had quoted. He proposed to substitute 0.62 SHGC glass that had a slightly better U-factor. Here we go again on three-decimal-place window metrics!Again, a happy ending. Passive House Academy confirmed that the better U-factor trumped the slightly lower SHGC.Yep, we’re all set on windows. [Editor’s note: Roger and Lynn Normand are building a [no-glossary]Passivhaus[/no-glossary] in Maine. This is the 11th article in a series that will follow their project from planning through construction.]There’s a popular saying here in Maine — “we’re all set” — to signify that the current situation is perfectly fine.Window selection had so far been the most time-consuming and vexing aspect of the EdgewaterHaus project. That was all behind us. We had made a final decision on an Optiwin-designed Bieber-manufactured Passivhaus-certified windows.We had:exchanged a few draft proposals refining the window specifications;determined the exterior color (green);opted to use FSC certified european pine for the window frame;picked hardware style and color (contemporary look in silver finish);chosen to have standard European-style vertical hinges rather than the no-cost optional concealed horizontal hinges;selected a factory-applied interior stain color on the pine wood (a mid tone oak shade);identified which windows required screens (all but the garage and a window at the top of the stairs to the lower);approved detailed shop drawings of all the windows;signed a sales contract;made two down payments totaling some 50% of the delivered cost of the windows;received word from Bieber that production of our windows was underway.So, we were all set on windows. Will you accept a substitution?To his credit, Benoit, our Bieber salesman in New York City, was genuinely distressed and apologetic about the situation and wanted to find an acceptably accommodation. In lieu of a refund, Bieber offered to provide their more expensive, Bieber-designed Bi-Passif window at no additional cost. We looked at pictures of the windows and liked what we saw. It’s also a Passivhaus-certified window with slightly different aesthetics, installation, and performance — the U-factor is a bit better, but the frame dimensions and spacers a bit worse. We are talking three-decimal-place differences.Would any of this affect the Annual Heat Demand and our Passive House Design Stage Assurance from the Passive House Academy? We would not know until the new values were entered into the the Passive House Planning Package. Benoit offered to reimburse us for our architectural and energy consultant costs for switching to the Bi-Passiv, and a further discount on screens. That sounded fair to us.So our architect, Chris Briley, adapted the Bi-Passiv window to the EdgewaterHaus design, and PHA re-ran the PHPP model. The results: no significant impact on the PHPP; no change in the window shop drawings; some slight modifications to the exterior and interior detailing.Problem resolved within about 2 weeks. We were once again all set on windows. Bieber lacks the authority to sell these windows in the U.S.Not so, as it turned out. RELATED ARTICLES Now, we waitSo we await word that Bieber has completed production of our windows at their plant in Alsace, France, and are preparing to ship them to us. We’re not sure what happened “behind the curtain” between Beiber and Optiwin, but feel that Beiber has done their best to help us resolve this to our satisfaction. As for the shipping delay, well, with all the construction delays, the windows may yet arrive just in time.So for right now … we are again all set on windows … until further notice!

Optiwin licenses their window design to Bieber and other manufacturers to produce and sell. We were told that Optiwin had just withdrawn Bieber’s authority to ship the Optiwin designed window to the U.S. market.Of course, our first reaction was disbelief. How could that be, we wondered? We had a signed contract with Bieber containing “irrevocable” legalities. Surely, our contract must be “grandfathered,” and thus should — no, must — be honored.The shock quickly wore off to the reality of the situation. Bieber offered to return all our money. We could start anew with our runner-up window Intus. But workers were already assembling the foundation. We could easily foresee one or more months preparing and reviewing shop drawings and other decision points before even placing the order. The building shell would be completed months before the replacement windows arrived. What havoc would that bring to the construction schedule?We momentarily considered legal remedies – sue ’em for noncompliance with the contract. But how long would that prolong the situation, how much would that cost, and how much anguish would that create for us?We’re not the litigious type. Let’s find a reasonable alternative.

UAAP Season 80 Preview: UP Fighting Maroons looking for results

That is really our ambition this season,” he said. “It’s going to be really tough for us, but we have to up the ante in terms of what we want to happen with our program. We were able to get five wins last season so we don’t expect to get a lower win-loss slate this coming season. The logical direction for us is to have that Final Four spot.”Cebuano scorer Paul Desiderio will lead the Maroons along with uard Diego Dario and sophomore Javi Gomez de Liaño and promising neophytes Juan Gomez de Liaño and Jun Manzo. Only in his second year at the helm, Perasol is firm in his belief that for the first time in a long time, UP truly has nowhere to go but up.“That’s really our direction. We aspire to win because I know with my players, they have the capacity, we have the skills, we have the experience to achieve that and dream towards making it to the Final Four,” he said.However, Perasol admitted that from time-to-time, shades of the Fighting Maroons’ old losing habits inevitably resurface. That’s why the mentor is doing everything he can to diffuse the doubts in preparation for this year’s campaign.“There are still remnants of our mindset that we could only go to a certain level, so this is going to be a new territory for us. We’re barging and wanting to be in the Final Four, and for the longest time, I don’t think that is the mindset of our program. It’s easy to say but it’s hard to do with the strong lineups of every team, but we are up to the challenge,” he said.The Fighting Maroons are out to prove that last year’s feel-good story is no fluke.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding Read Next San Beda’s Fernandez, Bolick, Doliguez, Benilde’s Young suspended for 1 game “It’s always in our moniker, that we’re the ‘Fighting Maroons.’ But we’ve been fighting for so long and it’s getting stale.

Fernandez thanks doubters for pushing Red Lions to work harder

first_imgBut the Red Lions threw the Pirates’ undefeated record down the drain when they swept the best-of-three Finals with a 92-82 victory on Thursday.Fernandez added another hardware to his already gaudy trophy case with his third championship with San Beda.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutBut more than the citation, what meant more to for Fernandez was his triumphant return to the collegiate scene after two years in the pros with NLEX.“A door closes and a big gate of San Beda opened up for me. San Beda welcomed me with open arms, and they really, really tried to adjust to my system,” he said. “It’s tough for me with all the situation that I had in the past. It brought back the trust I had in myself, because what happened to me was so bad that I thought I’d never coach again.” 10 Filipino players bolster ABL teams as Heritage Imports It was one of the most challenging tasks the outspoken mentor has ever faced in his decorated career in the collegiate scene.Through the course of San Beda’s stronghold of the NCAA throne, it has never been regarded as an underdog. That was until Season 93, when surprise top seed Lyceum rampaged through the field and completed the 18-game sweep of the eliminations.Fernandez knew the odds were stacked against him, and it didn’t help that criticisms were hurled his way when the Red Lions failed to finish on top for the first time in 12 years.Fortunately for him, his players showed their worth and proved that this batch is truly one of the best this decade has ever seen, shunning  doubts with a championship to brag.“This championship will not be a reality if not for my players. They deserve to win this championship because they worked hard really well. They sacrificed for around 11 months, and we know in the course of our season, people doubted us. But the circle of this team never doubted each other,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Read Next CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

They gave us fire and we strived hard to win. They counted us out, they counted me out right away, but in the end, we came back and won a championship,” he said.Fernandez is also hopeful that the NCAA Season 93 trophy will be enough to merit a return ticket for him in Mendiola next year.“I wish I’ll continue to coach San Beda. I know it will be up to the bosses what their decision will be, but if I will be asked if I’ll stay with San Beda, can it be lifetime?,” he asked.At this moment, with a championship to boot, there’s no reason why Fernandez shouldn’t.
