Lofts at 308
Located in the heart of downtown Columbia’s “The District”, this 64-unit, upscale apartment building sits adjacent to the University of Missouri School of Journalism. “The building was specifically designed to seamlessly blend in with several of the surrounding structures and we knew casement and awning windows and sliding patio doors would play a key role in complementing the building’s architectural style,” said architect Tom Goedeke of ACI Boland. “The Lofts at 308 creates a new, regenerating aesthetic appeal to the university oriented downtown community,” added Goedeke.
According to Goedeke, Integrity® Wood-Ultrex® Casement and Awning Windows and Sliding Patio Doors were selected due to their functionality, style and energy efficiency qualities. Wood-Ultrex windows and doors are ENERGY STAR® qualified for savings from 7-15% of the total energy bill. *In addition, the availability of the windows and ease of installation meant the contractor was able to reduce labor costs and scheduling time for installing the windows. “Being an ‘urban site’, installation was critically important…it allowed the contractor to save the owner additional costs,” Goedeke added.
INTEGRITY WOOD-ULTREX WINDOWS ARE BUILT TOUGHER, LAST LONGER AND PROTECT BETTER.
• With more than 20 years serving apartments, condominiums, assisted living, HUD/public housing authorities, universities, small businesses and more, our current installations are proof that Ultrex pultruded glass lives up to its claims for strength and durability over the long term.
• Every window and door comes standard with Low E2 insulated glass with Argon, and optional low E1 or Low E3 for superior performance and long-term energy cost savings.**
