Dunwoody College of Technology in Minneapolis, Minn., is carrying out a $10 million renovation that calls for restoring and replacing a majority of the main facility's windows to match the original façade and improve energy efficiency.
The college says that anonymous donor is paying for the work, which is scheduled to be completed later this year.
The new, larger windows will match the size of the original façade, which were replaced with much smaller windows during the energy crisis of the 1970s.
More than 60 high-energy efficient windows will be installed around the entire main building, replicating the size and design of the original windows. This will not only enhance the building's aesthetic appeal but also contribute to improved energy efficiency.
The college also will install new signage for the perimeter of the Dunwoody campus, including monument signs, lighted pillars, and an entrance archway, creating better wayfinding for students and visitors.
The architect is Cuningham, and the contractor is Mortenson Company.
