Lincoln Square / Bellingham, WA
Marvin—The best value for the dollar
Energy efficiency, ease of use and value were key considerations when the Bellingham Housing Authority turned its attention to upgrading the inefficient aluminum windows in Lincoln Square, a senior and low-income housing development.
The organization chose Marvin Windows and Doors as a minimum standard in retrofitting the nearly 500 windows.
The inefficient aluminum windows were replaced with Marvin's Gliders, a product with superior thermal efficiency and ease of operation—features especially appreciated by the building’s senior residents.
The Gliders came with an extruded aluminum clad exterior in rich Bronze to complement the 1950s utilitarian-style, terracotta-and-sand colored structure.
Nearly 500 windows were custom-sized to Bellingham Housing Authority’s specifications for size and energy efficiency.
