This undertaking centered around the restoration and re-envisioning of the Former Home of Al Hirschfeld (1903 – 2003), an eminent figure in 20th-century caricature artistry.
The prevailing window configurations deviated from historical accuracy. Across the passage of time, prior proprietors had introduced substitute windows within the original window frames.
During the measurement phase, a clear demarcation was imperative between the elements that had undergone replacement, those that retained their original form, and the precise placements for the novel windows and door.
The replication of the authentic window sight lines, glass arrangements, and grid patterns held paramount significance to adhere to the stipulations of the Landmark regulations.
Moreover, WindowFix meticulously sought out a product design that adhered to the specifications outlined by the NYC ECC code. The comprehensive renovation, helmed by Cardinal Construction, involved an extensive overhaul and was characterized by stringent time constraints governing the coordination of the window and door installation sequences for both the front and rear facades of the edifice.
To surmount the complexities posed by measurements, WindowFix undertook substantial on-site evaluations prior to initiating the ordering process. Our close collaboration with Kolbe Window and Door enabled us to adeptly translate the precise on-field conditions to the manufacturing floor, ensuring the utmost accuracy in fabrication.
During the installation phase, an adept crew was deployed, proficiently expediting the process while maintaining a close partnership with the General Contractor (GC) to seamlessly harmonize the myriad interior finishing intricacies.
