Universal Supplies Windows for Historic Renovation

December 17th, 2018 by Drew Vass, Executive Editor

Marlborough, Mass.-based Universal Windows recently supplied windows to a key renovation project in Brighton, Mass.—including historically accurate windows, matching original 1925 blueprints. The Beaux Arts building was once a 71,000-square-foot regional headquarters for equipment and vehicle manufacturer International Harvester. According to company officials, to complete the task, Universal accessed its library of historic panning profiles, in order to meticulously match the original moulding profiles.

“The building features arched windows, highlighted by a fifty-foot bay window opening to the lobby, which includes a dramatic canopy entrance,” reads a company release. “There are eight-to-ten foot high windows on the main floor, with operable three-to-four foot high windows on the upper floors, providing abundant natural light for the building.”

Tony Muraco, chief executive officer for Universal Window and Door, says, “Universal is proud to be a part of the project that restored this historically significant building to its former glory. We are always pleased to be part of significant restorations like the former International Harvester building.”
