Universal Window Projects Earn Awards

330 Railroad Avenue

Marlborough, MA – Universal Window and Door provided the historic replica windows for a pair of projects that were recently honored by the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving Connecticut’s historic and cultural heritage.

Universal supplied historic replica windows to Billings Forge, one of Hartford’s first major adaptive-use projects, and 330 Railroad Avenue, a 1928 Art Deco building that was formerly home to Connecticut Light & Power.

Billings Forge is a mixed-use project comprised of apartments, a job-training center, a restaurant, and a community garden. The project was designed by The Architectural Team (TAT) and built by Keith Construction, Inc.

330 Railroad Avenue in Greenwich was converted into “cool” office space by owner and principal tenant Granoff Architects, and constructed by the JCS Construction Group.

“The visions and hard work behind each award are triumphant success stories of historic preservation’s value in our local economies and cultural life,” said Wes Haynes, director of external partnerships for the trust, in a statement announcing the honorees.
