Construction Contract Dispute and Claim Handbook: Division 8 Openings

(from the text) Division 8 Openings pertain chiefly to skylights, curtain walls, windows, and entrances. There are also sections for interior and exterior doors, hardware, as well as interior glazing programs. Division 8 exterior programs comprise the vertical part of what is commonly called the ‘building envelope,’ or those systems that serve to protect the building from the elements. As such, Division 8 defect claims typically relate to water or air penetration as a consequence of either an installation defect, or a manufacturing defect in the treatment of the joints of the metal and glazing components of a window, door, or curtain-wall.
