Great Glazing
Montour High School renovation

Glazing contractor: Specified Systems Inc.
Glass manufacturer: Guardian Industries
Glazing system supplier: Traco

The $26 million renovation of Montour High School in McKees Rocks, Pa., transformed the 1956 campus of concrete block buildings clad in brick veneer into a modern educational facility enclosed in metal cladding, and ample windows, curtain wall and storefront systems. The project, which was completed in October 2011, included renovation of existing structures in addition to some new building.
