Energy-Efficient Windows Key to University of Wisconsin at Stout’s Hovlid Hall Expansion and Renovation

The recent renovation of Hovlid Hall, a residential facility on the University of Wisconsin-Stout campus, included energy-efficient windows from Wausau Window and Wall Systems. Work on the building was part of a $13 million project that included renovation of Hovlid Hall’s 40,000 square feet and 194-person capacity of residential space, plus construction of a new student dining and fitness facility.

The design of Hovlid Hall was conceived by SDS Architects Inc. of Eau Claire, Wis., and implemented by R.J. Jurowski Construction of Whitehall, Wis. Working closely with the architect and contractor, specialty glazing contractor Simmons Building Products Inc. of Milwaukee selected Wausau’s 6250 Series SuperWall system and 4100 Series horizontal sliding windows. The windows feature Viracon’s low-E insulating glass.

On both the interior and exterior, the aluminum frames for the systems were finished with an eco-friendly anodize by Linetec. Highlighting the modern, metallic aesthetic, a clear and a champagne color anodize were used.
