It all started on a Tuesday like any other, when a text message came to Rangate principal Greg Godbout's phone with a question- "If you had the challenge to build a high-performance window for a brand-new production, what kind of window would you build?". At this point, all we knew was the number was from Portland, Oregon. We didn't know it at the time, but it would be the beginning of one of the most ambitious and demanding projects Rangate had ever completed.
Balancing Performance and Tradition
There are two key factors in designing any window:
• Its level of performance. Performance is a general term which covers criteria including thermal insulation, airtightness, and craftsmanship. Rangate's first priority was making sure the proposed design would be a significant performance upgrade that would serve the Bhutanese people now and for the long term. After all, the windows manufactured for this project would be the beginning of a higher building performance standard for a whole country.
Beginning the Engineering Phase
In the Engineering phase, the Rangate team created a comprehensive project plan with everything the Bhutanese facility would require to begin window productions. This included:
