Time & Location 3:30PM - 4:30PM | Room 318A
Jana Akaka
Reveal Windows & Doors

This course will provide a better understanding of the benefits of using large fenestration “view walls” to achieve a more holistic living space by merging the indoor and outdoor environments. Through the use of both operable and fixed doors and windows, a unity can be achieved between indoor and outdoor living spaces, which can increase perceived square footage, reduce energy costs and provide positive health and well-being benefits to the occupants.

This course also will provide a better understanding of why the use of high quality, hand crafted windows and doors is a better overall value in the luxury building market, compared to typical large-production fenestration products. The use of premium materials and exceptional engineering provides an elegant, long-lasting product that increases both the value and longevity of the structure.

Jana Akaka, Hawaii account manager for Reveal Windows & Doors/Pacific Architectural Millwork, has over 17 years of experience in the local fenestration business. She has coordinated, designed and managed countless residential, commercial and luxury projects statewide, and has partnered with AIA CES to provide continuing education courses for more than 10 years.
