United States Naval Base - Building 11

Scope of Project

Building #11 (formally the wood working shop), is located on the United States Naval Base in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 2001 the building was renovated into office space. As a Philadelphia register historic site, the building was renovated in accordance with the secretary's standards of rehabilitation of Department of the Interior. The Philadelphia Historic Commission is the agency tasked with the supervision and the oversight of the rehabilitation of this project, and the compliance with the Secretary's Standards of Rehabilitation. On the exterior facade the most prominent feature are the very large triple double hung 20/20 windows, with the round head transom above. The openings measure 16 feet wide and 20 feet high. At some time in the buildings history the large round head windows were removed and a one story addition was build off of the building. The renovation required the removal of the addition, and the manufacture of new windows to match the original windows that had been removed


Working closely with the client and the design professionals, shop drawings were produced showing the details necessary to fabricate the windows to their original design using Internal Glazed Energy Panels (IGP) as the glazing medium. Manufactured to a sash thickness of 2", the windows were manufactured to match the existing 15/15 and 20/20 double hung configuration. The windows were manufactured from Mahogany. In addition to the windows, Seaquay manufactured 10 very tall entrance doors.
