Zervas and Mason Rice Elementary Schools, Newton, MA

  • Total Cost: $358,000 and $628,000
  • General Contractor: Lockheed Window Corp.
  • Project Type: Window Replacement

The windows and doors in each of the schools was replaced by a single contractor during one summer recess. The caulking and glazing in each of the buildings contained asbestos so the windows had to be removed under controlled abatement procedures. The single-paned, non-thermal metal windows were replaced with thermal aluminum windows. Glazing studies were performed and the new glazing included various Low E glazing types as well as increased quantities of translucent insulated panels to enhance the thermal performance of the window walls in each school.
