As Energy Prices Fluctuate, Developers Scramble to Reduce Building Costs

Global inflation and a volatile energy market are causing price spikes in electric and heating costs. Commercial builders and building operators are looking for ways to reduce costs and increase building efficiency over the long term. Traditional windows often prove to be an energy drain, allowing heating and cooling to escape the building. Installing high-performance commercial windows can reduce energy costs by 10-40%.

"Curtain windows don't have to be inefficient," says Todd Frederick, President of FreMarq Innovations. "Retrofitting with Fremarq systems can dramatically decrease heating and cooling loss in buildings."

The solution

FreMarq's Zero•Net™ retrofit system can reskin a curtain wall system to produce 50% better heating and cooling retention. The system improves building energy efficiency at potentially half the replacement cost of new windows. The FreMarq system can be installed over existing windows.

About FreMarq Innovations:

FreMarq Innovations, based in Merrill, Wisconsin, is an innovative architectural framing company founded in 2016 to develop energy-efficient curtain walls and windows with performance that was previously deemed "impossible." Not only did they engineer and patent their technology, but they also made it available to all architects and building owners at an affordable price—and they did it in less than six years. They exist to bring about the change in the design and construction of high-performance buildings with zero negative consequences—reducing carbon emissions through the use of FreMarq's Zero•Net™ fenestration solutions.
