The architect working on the renovation and modernization of Fletcher Hall at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) chose Heritage Windows by Wausau Window and Wall Systems because they capture the historic aesthetics of the building and the campus as a whole. The 70-year -old building, built in collegiate-gothic style, was renovated from a library to a student-orientated facility for the UTC School of Business. The Wausau WI-based company supplied more than 400 Heritage windows for the project. Heritage features a narrow profile steel window with a putty-glazed look.



Vistawall Skylights and Curtainwall Illuminate
the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge

wpe20.jpg (19751 bytes)Naturalite Skylight Systems and Vistawall Architectural Products, both part of The Vistawall Group, were chosen to supply over 51,000 square feet of skylights and curtainwall for the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge. BMS-3000™ skylights cover most of the available walking area, providing natural light throughout the building. Large spans create a light-filled area spacious enough for a carousel and giant palm trees. The CW-250 curtainwall system was used on the mall’s exterior and entryways, and was also employed to enclose and protect the interior glass elevator. The mall is one of the largest retail projects built in the United States in the ’90s.
