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′ x 7′ to 10′ x 13′, no two windows are alike.
SCW 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 facade, 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.
