How do you replace windows in a double stud wall house?

Updated: July 30, 2020

We have a 1982 double wall envelope house. I would like to expand  and replace the windows on the north side of the home. Is there anything special that should be considered to expand the size of the windows by the builder? If we install triple pane windows, do I still need to install  double windows for each opening to retain the envelope? I am looking for a builder in SE Wi who is familiar with these homes.
