Old and outdated buildings in desirable locations offer many opportunities for owners and developers that are often times more attractive than the option to demolish and/or rebuild. On many projects, MG McGrath Architectural Glass & Glazing has worked with owners, developers, and project teams to successfully renovate these existing buildings into ones that meet the expectations of comfort, functionality, environmental performance, and cost.
RETROFIT & RENOVATION
REVITALIZING WITH ARCHITECTURAL SURFACES
- Increased commercial value, comfort, and functionality
- Ability to adapt building for different use
- Upgraded systems without compromising historical authenticity
- Newly designed space in less time and at a lower cost
Due to the characteristics of the materials used to construct them, the aging of old and outdated buildings is rarely caused by structural decay. Buildings with good structural bones but outdated systems and exteriors can be upgraded to meet modern requirements and codes, and to increase commercial value, comfort, functionality, and environmental performance. In our experience, the most immediate advantage of renovation versus demolition and/or new construction is that the building already exists, often resulting in a much more sustainable approach with reduced cost, time, energy and debris.
Renovation projects can present complicated construction decisions and unforeseen challenges. MG McGrath Architectural Glass & Glazing is committed to the quality of every project that we are involved in, recognizing the criticality of our collaboration from the very start. To eliminate common coordination issues and to ensure that the project is completed on time and within budget, our first step is always to define the intent of the project owners, architects, and construction managers, working together to develop a complete and functional design. We then conduct a thorough review of the project site. MG McGrath Architectural Glass & Glazing controls the fabrication and installation of every project by self-performing our work, giving us control over the accuracy, schedule, and quality of each step.
When it comes to ingenuity and problem solving for quality architectural surfaces and innovative products, MG McGrath Architectural Glass & Glazing is a company that delivers. With experience and much success working through various project scenarios and climates throughout the United States, our skilled and knowledgeable team understands how to overcome challenges that may be present during renovation in order to complete the job on time and within budget.
