W.T. Waggoner Building / Fort Worth, TX
Creative replacement and installation solution for historic high-rise

The 20-story W.T. Waggoner Building was constructed in 1919 and remains on the Register of Historic Buildings.  After repainting the exterior of the old wood windows every four years, building owners sought a lower-maintenance window replacement solution. When asked about options, the team at Marvin determined that the look of the existing jalousie window assembly was achievable with a one-wide, two-high operating awning configuration.  Marvin’s standard 70% Kynar 500 exterior clad finish satisfied their need for low maintenance.

Not only did the building experience enhanced energy efficiency but the new dual-pane windows provided reduced sound transmission.  The owners were also satisfied with the installation process that preserved the interior trim and was conducted from the building’s interior, reducing the need for scaffolding and minimizing office disruption. 

Project Highlights
• High performing, low-maintenance product finish that replicated the look of the existing windows and eliminated the need for repainting
• Successful installation solution that maintained the daylight opening and preserved the interior trim
• Non-disruptive interior installation that allowed for “business as usual”
