"PPG eView Construct incorporates LBNL’s WINDOW 7 software engine and is backed by North America’s largest repository of glass-product performance data, which was developed by LBNL with the cooperation of PPG and other glass manufacturers. Construct allows users to mix and match glass, coatings, and gas fills into a virtual IGU [insulated glass units] design and to virtually analyze performance under standard Natural Fenestration Rating Council environmental conditions. Users can perform side-by-side comparisons of multiple IGUs and export reports of their selected IGUs for easy inclusion into bids."
