Hepburn Hall, New Jersey City University / Jersey City, NJ
Tilt Pac sash replacements retain hall’s historic integrity

New Jersey City University’s Hepburn Hall holds a special place in the community, so when it came time to update 600+ windows on this classic, only the best would do.

The University chose Marvin's cost-effective Tilt Pac sash replacement and panning system—an ideal choice for retaining historic integrity while enhancing energy efficiency. 

New Jersey City University’s Hepburn Hall

Marvin created a special template for 600+ units—all different sizes and shapes

Crimped zinc and glass were subjected to a special patina-producing process to create the look of leaded glass

Project Highlights

  • Almost every window unit was a different size and shape, so the crew hand-measured and tagged each window to make sure the right unit went to the right space.
  • Marvin took an existing sash and manufactured a duplicate, complete with pointed Gothic top, narrow width and small height, and created a special template for the 600+ units.
  • Casemaster sash got the classic look of leaded glass produced by subjecting crimped zinc and glass to a special patina-producing process. A special size check rail was designed to match pre-cast stone pieces, echoing the aesthetics of the original windows.
  • The Marvin panning system covered weathered exterior sills and trim with attractive, low-maintenance, highly durable extruded aluminum cladding.
  • “An ambitious schedule required delivery and installation throughout the winter. Special extrusions and hardware, leaded glass and other long lead times, demanded special efforts. Marvin was able to coordinate all of it,” said Mario D'Onofrio, Vice President, Cordoba Construction, Inc.
