PROJECT SPOTLIGHT – Beverly High School
A & A Window Products, Inc. was selected through a public bidding process to furnish and install various glass and glazing systems. A & A worked with the general contractor and architect to achieve what the state treasurer calls a “model for the schools of the future”. This project included numerous fenestration types such as EFCO windows, curtain-wall and entrances, Acurlite skylights, and Graham FM green sunshades. The building’s design and makeup lends itself to a green structure to stand for years to come.
PROJECT SPOTLIGHT – Family Studies Building, University of Connecticut
A & A Window Products was selected as the general contractor for the façade repair at the Family Studies Building in Storrs, CT. The construction is nearly 100-year-old masonry over terra cotta.
The windows were chosen to closely resemble the existing steel sash with true divided lites. Taking into consideration the existing terra cotta back up system, the window installation needed to be intricately fastened to the building, increasing the difficulty of this project.
In addition to the window replacement, A & A Window Products scope included masonry repairs, hazardous waste removal and abatement, roofing, repair to existing copper gutter and downspouts, plaster, painting, door hardware repair, as well as minor site landscaping and general conditions.
PROJECT SPOTLIGHT – Harvard University
Tuchman Hall is part of a five building group of dormitories with an adjacent common area building. A & A Window Products, Inc. was hired to furnish and install commercial windows, doors and entrances as part of a four year plan to restore the exterior facade. The facade work took place immediately following the start of summer break and was completed in mid-August to allow the University time to get the dormitories ready for the arrival of the first day of school. The work included 240 weather-sealed window openings and approximately eight storefronts and entrances, and was completed in just over an eight week period.
