Historical Window Replacement

Historically Significant Projects

Some of the best things in life are those that have stood the test of time. At Koch Corporation we understand the importance of maintaining architectural character that reflects the beauty of historical buildings, yet brings the value of current Green Technology. Utilizing architectural grade windows of various mediums, along with panning systems, muntins, high performance architectural finishes and energy efficient glazing, we can demonstrate how to upgrade your existing window system to maintain the Historical significance of your project. Along with the installation process, lead and asbestos abatement, if necessary, can be performed by Koch’s own certified team.

Des Moines City Hall, Des Moines, IA

Koch Corporation put in energy efficient windows made by Old Castle Windows in the Des Moine Iowa Municipal Court and Public Safety Building. Because this building is of great Historical Significance, the project required a design study to research the history of the windows. Koch’s own certified team also did the asbestos abatement required because of the age of this building.
