Critical to any kind of retrofit project is the impact the process will have on a building’s occupants. The advantages of on-site processing are many, with careful consideration given to minimize disruption to tenants and to day-to-day building operations.
The removal and re-installation of glass occured during evening hours to avoid any disruption to building tenants and occupants. We also installed our QuietRock® soundproof drywall in the dedicated processing space to protect neighboring tenants from noise during construction.
By reusing existing glass and processing the new super-insulating glass units on-site, the process eliminates a lot of waste, eliminates CO2 emissions that would have been emitted during transprotation, and reduces replacement costs. By innovating a sustainable processing solution, we avoided wasted energy and costs in transportation, shipping, and production associated with the traditional alternative of discarding the old glass and installing new replacement glass.
