Case Studies:

Project: Capital One Bank - Wyckoff Ave, Brooklyn NY
General Contractor: Adelhart Construction
Materials:
  • YKK YES 600 1-3/4" x 6" Thermally Broken Front Loaded Store Front System
  • 1" Clear Tempered Insulated Glass with Solarban 60 Low-E Coating
  • YKK 35D Medium Stile Doors
Challenges:
  • Integrating new window system with existing historical masonry and steel façade
  • Installation had to be completed during normal banking hours and without interfering with fully operational branch.
Solutions:
