Red Diamond Achiever Award Winner Featured in Philadelphia MagazineBy Marvin Windows
A 2016 Red Diamond Achiever award-winning project, Forest Walk project in Berwyn, PA by T.R. Moser of Moser Construction Management, LLC, was featured in Philadelphia Magazine. The project involved converting a Catholic grade school, built in 1925, to four residential condos with an underground garage. Integrity® All Ultrex® Double Hung Windows were the best option to recreate the style of window that was originally installed in the school. Philadelphia Magazine notes why and shares some of the project’s challenges:
“… Then there was the borough’s new adaptive reuse ordinance for older buildings, approved the year before Moser bought the school with projects like his in mind. Those high-tech windows played a key role in enabling Moser to proceed. They’re called Integrity All-Ultrex Double-Hung Windows, and they’re made from a proprietary process that creates extremely durable fiberglass frames that perform like new years longer than comparable windows. The double-paned windows were custom-made with simulated mullions that mimic the appearance of the building’s original windows, which the archdiocese had removed and replaced with large-pane windows with steel lintels. Moser removed those windows, put in steel cages to house the new ones, and inserted the new windows in the cages. Because they were custom-built to fit the openings, they created a seamless facade that matched the 1925 design.
‘When you drive by, they look like they’ve always been there,’ Moser said.”
