Federal banking buildings have a unique set of needs and challenges for their windows: government mandates require them to follow both safety and energy performance protocols, while historical preservation guidelines prohibit work that changes the appearance of the windows.
Thermolite has worked with the window systems of major federal banking buildings that are also considered National Historic Places, including: Washington DC’s 6 story Lafayette Building (also known as Export-Import Bank Building), the 5 story Marriner S. Eccles Federal Reserve Board Building in DC, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and the 8-story Federal Reserve Banking Annex Building in NYC, to remain in compliance of security, energy efficiency, and historical integrity guidelines with the use of our interior curtain wall retrofit window systems.
Thermolite was able to follow historical preservation guidelines by not altering the existing exterior windows whatsoever, while also providing benefits, including:
- No disruptions in operation
- Improved security function
- Increased comfort levels
- 20% average energy savings
