McLane and Fahey Residence Halls / Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH
High performance goals result in LEED Gold
The Dartmouth College Office of Planning, Design and Construction set high goals regarding the building project’s carbon footprint, durability, financial viability and social/environmental responsibility. They targeted a 48% reduction in total energy use and a 57% reduction in energy costs. Along with other building strategies, the exterior walls were highly insulated, and Marvin Clad Ultimate Double Hungs were the windows of choice.
This project required LEED certification in early 2005. Information was quickly researched and captured to support LEED application.
Marvin was able to provide a historic looking double hung window with high performance characteristics.
Factory applied nail fin and drip cap saved contractor time. Durable aluminum cladding with 70% Kynar 500 finish beautifully withstands the elements.
