Recently renovated Building 19 is the centerpiece of STCC’s vibrant new Student Learning Commons and boasts of 552 SCW3000 Series fixed frame windows, with openings ranging from 10×7 to 10×13 foot and with no two windows exactly alike.
St. Cloud Window worked closely with the architect, the National Park Service, and the Massachusetts Historical Commission on the development of Building 19’s fenestration, which comprises nearly 50% of the façade, to enclose the building while providing natural daylight and views. Historic louvers designed for ventilation were reimagined as exterior sun shades to manage solar heat gain.
Building 19, a 767 ft. long three-story former armory storehouse, is just
one of 13 National Historic Registered buildings on the STCC campus.
