The windows in the Arsenal Street Apartments in Watertown, Massachusetts were becoming a problem. At 25 years old, the original aluminum double hung windows in the seven-story building were inoperable, and a serious upgrade was in order for the low income elderly housing complex.
The property owner, Gilbane Development Company, was looking for a durable window replacement solution, with unique sizing capabilities to fit the original window openings in the brick structure. Other requirements taken into consideration were energy efficiency, ease of use for the elderly residents, and restoring the former beauty of the building. For these reasons, architectural firm Smits Associates worked with retailer JB Sash & Door to choose Infinity Replacement Windows from Marvin as the perfect solution for the project.
