University of Minnesota, Folwell Hall

University of Minnesota, Folwell Hall

The University of Minnesota's historic Folwell Hall underwent three years of extensive renovation so that students, faculty and staff could enjoy a more comfortable, energy-efficient interior without sacrificing the exterior's classically collegiate character. Contributing to this delicate balance of architectural preservation and modernization, Kolbe provided nearly 500 traditionally styled, high performance, low maintenance windows.
Kolbe's very large double hung window system met the both the aesthetic and performance specification. State-bonded building projects must meet B3 Minnesota Sustainability Building Guidelines.
 
 
All of the windows are rectangular in shape, but custom in size. There are 16 different window sizes on Folwell, the largest of which is 38-3/4" x 92-1/4". The windows are crafted for a uniform, traditional appearance and smooth, easy operation. Special keyed custodial locks were added to secure the windows.
 
 
Kolbe delivered as promised. We were impressed with the quality of the product.
