Lockheed Window Corp. is set to mobilize on the CREC Academy of Aerospace Engineering Elementary School construction site in early May 2019.
Lockheed is working with general contractor Downes Construction Company on the innovative, 101,000sf project, located in Rocky Hill, Conn.
Lockheed’s scope on CREC Academy, a building that will boast a multitude of components for a unique design and finish, is set to last just over six months.
Lockheed will supply and install exterior and interior storefronts, curtainwalls, entrances, folding glass doors, fiberglass sandwich panels for the gymnasium, a glass floor for the upper-level main entrance, a glass display case for the art classroom, and all mirrors for the lavatories.
The GlassWalk glass floor system, NanaWall Folding Doors, and Kalwall Fiberglass Sandwich Panels are particularly distinctive products the Lockheed team will be installing for this creative project.
The ground level of the building as well as the interior storefronts and doors will be comprised of Child Guard Safety Glass for the security and safety of the students and faculty. The upper levels of the building will be comprised of energy-saving Solar Ban 60 low-E tempered glass.
In addition, each curtainwall entrance will feature custom fabricated metal arches and circles applied to the glass, with the metal designed to match the custom “outer space” color finish seen on all the storefronts and curtainwalls.
Lockheed teams are fully equipped to handle the various needs of any commercial construction project, whether it be developing a new building or revamping an existing one.
