Marlborough, MA – Universal Window and Door provided windows for seven of the historic restoration projects recently honored with the 2015 Paul E. Tsongas Award.
Universal supplied windows that allowed nearly a quarter of the 30 honorees to restore the historic character of the original buildings to their projects, including:
- Ames Shovel Works, a 19th century industrial complex consisting of seven granite buildings constructed between 1852 and 1885 that were converted into 113 apartments.
- Lowell Community Health Center in Lowell, which was transformed from a pair of late 18th century buildings into a 100,000sf medical facility.
- Washington Park in Roxbury, an eight-building, 96-unit apartment community originally constructed in 1928.
- The Rice Silk Mill Apartments in Pittsfield, built in 1874 and converted into 45 mixed-income units.
- 110 Canal Street of the Hamilton Canal District in Lowell, a former textile manufacturing plant built in 1920 and redeveloped into 55,000sf of office space.
- Ames Privilege Apartments in Chicopee, a former Civil War foundry that made swords and cannons, that was converted into 134 apartment units.
- The former Boston Printing Press Building & Boston Police Station No. 1 in Boston’s North End, that were re-imagined as the 65,000sf North Bennet Street School.
“Being a part of so many projects that were recognized by Preservation Massachusetts is a tremendous source of pride for our employees as well as a testament to our growing reputation among developers and construction firms as the go-to window manufacturer for historic renovation projects,” said Tony Muraco, president and CEO of Universal Window and Door.
