DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla — Crawford-Tracey Corporation, a leading Florida-based glazing contractor specializing in unitized and pre-glazed curtain wall and window wall products, recently completed a major curtain wall retrofit project in Hollywood, FL.
The 40 year-old, 6-story office building, now called Ganot Plaza, has a new modern look, showcasing Crawford-Tracey’s Pro-Tech 7SG, a contemporary curtain wall system that meets the most stringent hurricane standards in the country while offering a water rating of 100 psf…the industry’s highest rating for a standard commercial window system. Viracon fabricated the glass with VUE-30, their highest performing coated glass.
"Retrofitting a 40 year old building can have its challenges," say Ray Crawford, President of Crawford-Tracey. “We worked closely with the developer/owner, Ganot Capital LLC and the architect, Iraj Shojaie as well as Viracon to make sure we not only meet the desired aesthetics of the new façade but also provide the hurricane and energy performance that was required on the project.”
