Article source: LarsonO’Brien

JAMESTOWN, NY – A historic retrofit project on some of the most hallowed ground in the United States, the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, was recently completed with the installation of 1,700 custom, handcrafted steel windows from Hope’s®.

The design-build project was the work of Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii to retrofit the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard/Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PHNSY/IMF) Building 155–with the mandate to maintain the structure’s historic window features.

Hope’s, widely regarded for customizing its hot-rolled steel windows to virtually any design vision, went one step further and literally created a new product line for Building 155: the Hope’s ONE55™SERIES Steel Windows.

JACQUES DE VAUCANSON HIGH SCHOOL in TOURS, France by Colboc Franzen & Associés

The art of dentistry on an occupied site

In the suburbs of Tours, in the late 80s, a large concrete vessel dedicated to teaching was constructed, the Jacques de Vaucanson High School. It affirms an orthogonal composition of geometric shape, relayed by a work of genius on the cuts, displaying an absolute belief in the architecture. But this act of bravery has been overtaken by time. The areas of activity have eroded the surrounding land, low maintenance budgets have prematurely aged it, thermal standards have changed, and the number of students will increase: it must be restructured.
