AIA Continues Partnership with Andersen Windows and Doors
WASHINGTON – Feb. 23, 2020 - The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is continuing its partnership with Andersen Windows and Doors this year to address the needs of architects in practice while supporting the company’s efforts to develop products that contribute to a better built environment.
“Andersen is a leader in the building products market, and their brand has a proud history,” said AIA EVP/Chief Executive Officer Robert Ivy, FAIA. “Together, we can advance the value and visibility of good design in building a beautiful and resilient world.”
As an AIA Innovation Partner, Andersen Windows and Doors will provide support to AIA initiatives with architecture firms by creating opportunities for architects to learn about advances in windows and doors. Additionally, architects will provide feedback to the company about products as well as design and client needs.
“Andersen is the most preferred, recommended and specified window and door brand by architects, according to a recent study we conducted, and that is incredibly important to us,” said Annie Zipfel, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Andersen and member of the AIA Manufacturers Council. “Through our relationship with AIA, we value the opportunity to listen to and learn from the architect community – inspiring our work to develop the products that enable their designs.”
