311 Summer Street / Boston,  MA
Urban Preservation

Since full frame replacement would have cut down on the amount of glazing and not met historic preservation requirements, Marvin invented a better solution. A two piece panning system was engineered to replicate the profile of the existing frame and was installed over it – avoiding tear-out and allowing for sash replacement using Marvin’s Tilt Pac. 
Project Highlights

  • Rapid prototyping ensured all details were precisely met.
  • A  unique two-piece panning system for three-wide units had arched infill panels on the exterior, while retaining the original rectangular shape on the interior.
  • The flexible and responsive Marvin Signature team was able to adjust the delivery timing of the windows to best fit the rigid timeline of the project.
  • Restoration of 311 Summer Street earned LEED Gold Certification.
