See us about our free energy modeling and design assistance

Today's energy efficient glass and window framing systems can greatly improve the work environmnent by stabilizing indoor temperatures, reducing outside noise and providing more natural daylight, while controling glare. Apogee Enterprises, Inc.'s companies have the expertise to work with building owners and managers to evaluate renovating the glass, windows, curtainwall, storefront and entrances for commercial buildings. We have developed energy modeling tools that allow us to compare the energy consumption of existing aluminum and glass on a building to the energy consumption using the latest glass and aluminum technology. These tools allow building owners and operators to understand the energy savings and reduction of capacity for lighting and HVAC systems. We offer complimentary design assistance, budgeting, energy modeling, tax and utility incentive research, and construction suggestions across North America. We offer these services to help building teams make informed choices about upgrading their building envelope systems.

Brands: Apogee’s companies include Alumicor; EFCO Corporation; Harmon, Inc.; Linetec; Sotawall; Tubelite Inc.; Viracon; and Wausau Window and Wall Systems.

  • Franklin Tower Residences updated the Philadelphia skyline with 550 luxury apartments fashioned from the previous headquarters for GlaxoSmithKline. The former 1980’s concrete, office toweApogee_PA_Franklin_AFTER_GregBenson_3496web.jpgr has been converted into a premier, modern, glass-clad residential property.

    The 24-story building encompasses more than 607,000 square feet consisting of one- and two-bedroom luxury apartments offering generously sized floor plans, high ceilings, expansive window views and ample natural light with floor-to-ceiling windows by Wausau Window and Wall Systems.

    Building owner PMC Property Group relied on Gensler to design the renovated residential tower and transform the original architecture of Geddes Brecher Qualls & Cunningham (GBQC). General contractor Fastrack Construction managed the retrofit project for an on-time, on-budget delivery. Apogee Renovation assisted with energy-efficient, cost-effective recommendations to upgrade the building envelope.

    Re-envisioning and revitalizing with retrofit

    Apogee_PA_Franklin_BEFORE_GregBenson_120920_7449web.jpg“When Gensler was approached by PMC Property Group to re-envision One Franklin Tower and to replace its existing façade, we saw our challenge as more than just replacing the skin on an aging building,” explained Gensler Principal Robert Fuller, AIA. “Our approach was to ask a question critical to today’s cities: How can we continue to revitalize and reposition buildings that are no longer responding to the needs of their owners and tenants? Our challenge was to create a building that could enliven the public realm at street level, modernize and improve the functionality of its floor plates, and accommodate new homes for a growing downtown population.”

    To do this, Gensler looked at developing an adaptive façade to replace the outdated precast, single-glazed strip-window façade. “While that exterior was built for a single use, the rhythm of the new façade allows for a variety of programmatic uses,” said Fuller. “The recessed channels at the vertical columns and horizontal spandrels express the structural module of the building, while the floor-to-ceiling glass creates a lighter façade that connects the interior spaces to views of the city beyond.”

    At ground level, Gensler also increased both the transparency and the scale of the spaces by bringing the new storefront out to the sidewalk edge, eliminating the dark arcades that previously existed and better connecting the building to the surrounding community.

    Fuller added, “Buildings built in the late ’70s through the mid-’80s are beginning to age out of their highest and best use as our cities have changed into highly condensed urban centers that blur the lines between ‘live, work and play.’ One Franklin Tower offers a proposal to re-engage those buildings and bring them and the areas around them new life.”

    Collaboration through design-assistance

    Apogee_PA_Franklin_AFTER_GregBenson_3512web.jpgApogee’s Renovation Team – in conjunction with Wausau, Tubelite, Viracon, Linetec and its other businesses – assists building owners and property managers in evaluating

    the benefits of window renovation and upgrades. These include improving the appearance of the building, saving energy, downsizing HVAC loading, reducing maintenance, lowering vacancy rates, increasing rental rates and enhancing the value of the building.

    For Franklin Tower Residences, Apogee Renovation worked with Wausau’s associates to provide PMC Property Group with design-assist and product selection services for high-performance window, curtainwall and entrance systems. Wausau facilitated a two-day retreat at its manufacturing center in Wisconsin with representatives from the owner, architect and contractors.

    Wausau’s design-assist process can eliminate time-consuming resubmittals by working through issues before submission shop drawings are prepared. Clear scope definition minimizes change orders and surprises, while offering ample opportunity for value engineering, to focus all stakeholders on the most important design priorities.

    “PMC and Gensler worked together to imagine the ideal design, and brought it to us to make it a reality. Everyone came to the table at once to determine the best

    approach for improving and installing the building envelope,” explained Jason Green, Wausau’s architectural sales representative. “Based on a good working relationship and four pages of schematic design, the team was able to complete construction within six months of the owner’s approval.”

    Single solution, multiple glazing systems

    Apogee_PA_Franklin_DURING_GregBenson_3149web.jpgMeeting the specified performance and desired aesthetic for Franklin Tower Residences, Wausau supplied Reilly Glazing with the window wall, operable vents and doors. Tubelite Inc. supplied the entrance systems. These factory-assembled, factory-glazed systems also incorporate Linetec’s finishing and thermal improvement services, and Viracon’s glass.

    Residents and visitors to Franklin Tower are welcomed through two distinct, ground floor lobbies. The high-rise elevator lobby is on the south side of the building and has its own entrance off of Race Street, while the second lobby has an entrance on 16th Street and includes the low-rise and mid-rise elevator banks.

    Reilly Glazing installed Tubelite’s standard, narrow stile entrances at ground level along with Wausau’s 9250i-UW INvision™ unitized curtainwall. Both feature a simulated European Cherry wood grain finish applied by Linetec to the aluminum framing members. The environmentally responsible process starts with powder coat then utilizes a heat transfer sublimation process, and produces no VOCs.

    From the second floor to the rooftop, Wausau supplied approximately 200,000 square feet of 7250i HRX INvision window wall with more 700 zero-sightline operable

    vents and 166 terrace doors. Wausau’s CrossTrak™ sliding doors and Tubelite Inc.’s Therml=Block® entrances also complement

    the rooftop deck and lounge, presenting panoramic views.

    Enhanced appearance, optimized performance

    Apogee_PA_Franklin_AFTER_GregBenson_3554web.jpgThe majority of Franklin Tower Residences’ window, curtainwall and entrance systems were finished by Linetec in a Bright Silver color using a metallic Duranar® XL 70% PVDF resin-based architectural coating and four-coat, two-bake process. A two-coat mica Duranar Sunstorm also was applied in a Shanghi Silver color. Class I black anodize was selected for visual accents and industry-leading durability.

    Along with improving the building’s appearance and expansive views, the window wall and entrance systems also contribute to a more energy-efficient, comfortable interior. Viracon’s VE-2M 1-inch insulating glass was specified in a soft gray color with low-e coatings for improved thermal performance.

    Combined with high-performance Viracon glass, Wausau’s HRX system can achieve thermal performance of 0.33 U-value, and Condensation Resistance Factor of CRFf 76/CRFg 72. The window wall also meets the AAMA-1503 stringent test requirements for air, water and structural integrity.

    Within the window wall, the operable vents allow for natural light and views, as well as for easy accessibility to natural ventilation. Along with fresh air, this offers a seasonal opportunity to reduce HVAC loads and associated energy consumption. The operable vents also are engineered and tested in accordance with AAMA 513, and in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) criteria per ANSI A117.1.

    Accelerated installation, dependable results

    “Wausau’s products performed effortlessly,” said Dan Reilly of Reilly Glazing, “Their materials shipped as scheduled, and were labeled and sequenced correctly. With some window units weighing up to 800 pounds, we found them simple to install with the proper equipment.”

    “We were able to complete about a floor per week, to meet that fast-track schedule,” agreed Reilly. “We couldn’t have planned it any better. From engineering through installation, the entire project ran seamlessly. The client is extremely happy. It’s a beautiful building.”

  • EFCO Corporation introduces its new 590X Steel Replica Window helping buildings enhance their appearance with historically inspired profiles and narrow sightlines, while improving their performance with modern, energy-efficient glass and durable aluminum framing.

    Historic Details, Modern Performance

    EFCO_590X-SteelReplicaWindow_open1_web.jpgThe 590X Steel Replica Window replicates the look of a classic, industrial steel window in a choice of three standard profiles – bevel, cove and t-grid – or in made-to-order options. When retrofitting historic buildings, customizable muntins allow building owners to easily and economically match existing sightlines. Finishes also can be specified with different colors on the exterior and interior to complete the desired architectural aesthetic.

    "The new 590X Steel Replica Window supports building developers, owners and managers who want to increase their tenants' satisfaction through improving a property's appearance, thermal and acoustic comfort, and accessibility. Building owners also appreciate that these windows can help them save energy and utility costs, reduce maintenance and repairs, and increase the overall value of their commercial properties," said EFCO's window product manager, Joseph Holmes.

    The 590X Steel Replica Window is well suited for new construction or renovation of mid-rise buildings such as schools, universities, student residences, courthouses, hospitals, offices, retailers and properties on the National Register of Historic Places. EFCO collaborated with Apogee Renovation to developed the 590X Steel Replica Window in response to market research and based on input from glazing contractors, façade consultants, architects, owners and the National Park Service & Historic Preservation.

    San Francisco Redeaux

    EFCO_590X-SteelReplicaWindow_interior_web.jpgAlan Zweig, president of Architectural Fenestration & Restoration, Inc. (AFR), championed the first installation of EFCO 590X on a 1920s office building renovation of the former Schlage Locks headquarters in San Francisco. "We refurbished the original steel windows on the very front of the building to meet the historic guidelines. On the other three sides of the building, we used EFCO's 590X Steel Replica Windows. You can't tell which are which because they did such an exceptional job. It has now been reclaimed and restored to its full glory."

    He continued, "EFCO was very clever in designing its 590X windows to match the slender sightlines of historic windows, while having a robust main frame. Its surface-applied muntin grid accurately simulates the look of period steel windows."

    "The thermal performance, structural performance and sound performance of EFCO's 590X Steel Replica Windows are critical," added Zweig. "As codes continue to change, and thermal performance requirements continue to increase, it's hard to find window products that match the historic aesthetic, yet maintain the modern energy and structural requirements. With the EFCO 590X Steel Replica Window, we can have our cake and eat it, too."

    Zweig also complimented EFCO on collaborating throughout the project to "maintain our critical path timelines, keeping everything on schedule. We were able to drop the windows into their finished openings at the end of the project. Installing the windows from the interior, allowed all of the exterior finishes to move ahead and to have the project be weather-ready for winter. We installed 98 windows in five working days."

    Lab-Tested, Field-Proven

    EFCO_590X-SteelReplicaWindow_closed1_web.jpg"Our new window combines an historically accurate, customizable design with exceptional thermal and structural performance, integral water management and low operating force," reiterated Holmes.

    Demonstrating its high performance, the new 590X Steel Replica Window has earned a AW100 rating for casements and AW80 for project-out windows. Both fixed and operable units have successfully passed dynamic pressure water testing up to 15 psf. Additional performance testing has shown the operable window achieves a thermal U-factor as low as 0.42 with a standard low-e product and a condensation resistance factor (CRF) as high as 71.

    The new 590X Steel Replica Window has a system depth of 3-1/4-inches and accommodates up to 1-3/8-inch glass. The thicker glass also helps with acoustic performance for quieter interiors and aligns with EFCO's XTherm™ product offering. The 590X window meets AAMA 513 standards for accessibility, and can be combined with hardware options to ensure easy operation for people with a range of physical abilities.

    Holmes continued, "As a bonus feature, the window was engineered as a dry-glazed system. Down the road, should the glass be broken, it can be removed and replaced from the inside the building. This helps reduce the risks, costs and time associated with labor, equipment and permitting of typical exterior glass replacement."

    Supporting building retrofit opportunities, EFCO Corporation provides high-performance glass, aluminum framing and window system solutions, and can assist with architectural details, drawings, renderings, specifications and budgeting.
