Historic Steel Replica Windows Fill Adaptive Reuse Needs

June 14, 2021

After the Connecticut State Historic Preservation Office rejected a window manufacturer looking to replace the windows from an early 20th century machine shop, Crosskey Architects turned to Graham Windows. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the adaptive reuse of the former American Graphophone Co. now houses the Great Oaks Charter School and an adjacent residential space in Bridgeport, Conn.

To replace the rather large existing windows, Graham provided 680 SR6700 Steel Replica windows in fixed and fixed/projected configurations to simulate the authentic look of the original steel factory windows. The windows met the structural performance needs and historic requirements
