Historic Design Solutions
Your Solutions partner for historic Projects
For four generations, Marvin has built a reputation for doing the tough window replacement projects when repair and restoration are not an option. When other companies ask "Why?" we ask: "Why not?". We collaborate early with architects, facilities managers, general contractors and owners to find the right solution for your project. From on-site measurement of every opening to providing samples and rapid prototypes, we will help navigate the National Park Services standards and guidelines to discuss window specifications with local historic commissions. Marvin's Architectural Project Managers will provide support through the entire project lifecycle from initial concept to completion.
