Default Little Help from THT Resident Architects/Engineers

I'm hoping to get some "off the record" input from someone regarding a window testing issue.

I have a project where the spec's state that the field test pressure for the windows is to be 2/3 of the lab test pressure, using AAMA 502. However, in the spec's, the design criteria for the windows is based on ASCE 7-10 and the window manufacturer is stating that the test pressure for the windows be approx. 1/2 of what we feel it should be.

It is so convoluted, it's not even funny!

Any help is appreciated!!

You need to be having this discussion with the architect, are you the GC or a sub? AAMA 502 is fairly generic; does the contract have a specific test procedure/method listed?
