PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This residential tower is located at the Point, in Pittsburgh, PA, where the famous Three Rivers Meet. The existing windows in this building are over 60 years old and operate in a very unique manor. The large (8’ x 5’) operable windows utilize a “clam-shell” hinge mechanism that allows the 2 panes of glass to separate, therefore allowing access for cleaning. Due in part to the age of the windows, multiple failures took place, resulting in the outside pane separating from the sash and falling to the ground.

In an effort to prevent additional failures, AE Dynamics was hired to design a short-term remedy; a stopgap solution until the windows can be replaced. The windows are now secured, and occupants are able to operate the windows while enjoying the view.
