In the heart of New York State, a quiet revolution is taking place in the realm of affordable housing. Kas-Kel’s innovative window solutions are rewriting the script for communities in need, revitalizing historic buildings and modern residences alike. As we delve into two inspiring case studies, you’ll witness the metamorphosis of outdated spaces into remarkable community hubs, powered by energy efficiency, lasting durability, and a fresh aesthetic.
Restoring history and energy efficiency – Knitting Mill Apartments Project
Picture a neglected, historic building finding new purpose through restoration – this is the tale of the Perry Knitting Mill and DePaul Properties, Inc. Tasked with turning the mill into a LEED-certified apartment, DePaul faced the formidable challenge of modernizing while preserving the past. Historic charm had to coexist with modern energy efficiency, all while adhering to a budget. The answer? Kas-Kel’s windows.
Our windows don’t just fit in; they transform. In the Perry Knitting Mill’s case, large, non-standard brick openings were converted into windows that harmonized with the building’s character. The magic lies in their adaptability. Multiple Single Hung and Picture Windows became the bridge between history and modernity. They ensured top-tier performance while adding a dash of elegance to the building.
In their new settings, our windows became more than panes of glass; they became an embodiment of safety, equipped with structural mullions, tamper-proof latches, and ADA locks, catering to every resident’s needs. Adding grills between the glass brought architectural elegance with zero maintenance demands. In the end, they not only delivered performance and aesthetics but also sealed the deal for this adaptive restoration.
Crafting comfort and sustainability – Affordable Housing in Troy
In the bustling heart of Troy, affordability meets innovation thanks to BBL Construction. Their mission: to redefine affordable housing by crafting spaces that are as inviting as they are enduring. Here, too, our windows found a home and offered more than just a view.
Troy’s affordable housing presented a unique set of challenges. Tight budgets demanded cost-effective solutions that didn’t compromise on quality. Our 910 single hung window line stepped up. They aren’t just cost-competitive; they’re thermal champions, curbing utility costs and cocooning residents from urban clamor. As the bricks rose, so did the promise of comfort and savings.
Designed with Energy Star and green standards in mind, these units are more than just residences; they are commitments to quality living. They showcase the power of windows to transform spaces, reduce utility costs, and elevate living standards for all.
A window to a brighter future
Our windows are gateways to transformation. They convert dilapidated histories into modern narratives, revitalize affordability, and craft living environments that breathe comfort and sustainability. For contractors and materials purchasers, this isn’t just about windows; it’s about forging pathways to a brighter future. It’s about stepping through a threshold that connects past and present, limitations and possibilities. As the story of affordable housing continues to evolve, Kas-Kel’s windows remain steadfast, etching our mark on the journey from outdated to outstanding.
