University Campus Expansions Showcase Unique Windows and Doors
At Vanderbilt University’s expansion project in the Southeast, collaboration and cooperation among the construction management firm, window and door manufacturer, and installation contractor resulted in several stunning projects recreating the look of the surrounding century-old buildings. All totaled, Hope’s Windows, Inc. supplied over 1,200 unique windows made from custom hot-rolled steel profiles and nearly 100 high traffic and fire-rated door assemblies made from 10 and 12 gauge cold-rolled steel.
The Resilience of Steel Windows and Doors
Steel windows and doors, with their striking aesthetic appeal, are by far the most resilient option. Indeed, it is the strength of solid, hot-rolled steel that enables the graceful, slender sightlines, larger lites of glass, design flexibility, and weather and impact resistance that gives steel windows and doors their remarkable combination of both strength and visual appeal.
