Drawing from decades of experience in the fenestration industry, Robbins leads the Apogee building retrofit team in a nationwide effort, in conjunction with its businesses, to assist building owners and property managers in evaluating the benefits of window renovation and upgrades. These benefits include improving the appearance of the building, saving energy by reducing building loads on HVAC systems, reducing operations and maintenance costs, while increasing property value and tenant retention. The team offers energy modeling, product selection and design assistance, and a network of installers covering North America.
Robbins and his team present the Apogee retrofit service offering and renovation project success stories at numerous industry associations and events. These have included the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) GLOBALCON and World Energy Engineering Congress; the Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA) conference; the BuildingsNY show; the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) World Workplace; and the National Facilities Management and Technology (NFMT) conference.
During his 33 years with Wausau, Robbins worked on hundreds of renovation and new construction projects as a regional sales manager and estimating manager. His earlier positions included plant manager for manufacturing Wausau’s curtainwall and architectural windows, and as scheduling manager.
Before joining Wausau, Robbins graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with a Bachelor of Science. He also is trained in Six Sigma/Lean and has studied at the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management.
