2013 Integrity Red Diamond Achiever Award Winners
People's Choice 2013 Winner - Randy Burton
Greg D. Fisher, Architect
This commercial space located in Fort Collins, CO had high goals for retrofitting and greening an existing building to reflect the values of a successful sustainability consulting firm while also adhering to a tight budget. Integrity windows provided the right glazing solution to achieve those goals and contributed significantly to the building earning LEED Gold certification. The original building was a 25 year old classic post modern structure that was completely reworked with all new windows from Integrity that paired nicely with the new modern character.
This 1928 Clinker Brick Tudor style cottage sits just three blocks from the Atlantic Ocean. The owner of the home wanted to update the home while matching the charm that had existed for over 85 years. In order to match the architectural style and meet the performance requirements of a coastal environment, Integrity windows and doors were chosen for the project. The Integrity product offerings allowed for brand new casement windows with a divided lite design that replicated the 85 year-old wood windows. The home also now features a two story glass wall that overlooks the outdoor living space, providing a seamless transition between home and nature.
InHaus Development Ltd.
Located in White Rock, British Columbia, the Beachaus project was originally designed to qualify for LEED Platinum status. The design goal of this highly contemporary home was to leave a small footprint and to be 100% lit by natural daylight. 12’ ceilings with wall to wall glass give the illusion of additional space, but made it a challenge when it came to solar heat gain. Integrity’s combination of glazing options and Ultrex pultruded fiberglass helped the home meet the rigorous requirements of LEED Platinum status.
Located in the mountain cove community of Montreat, NC, this home sits on a National Wildlife Federation Certified Habitat. It was built on concrete pilings to minimize site disturbance, and required a large amount of windows to capture the brilliant views of the terrain and the natural world around it. Integrity products helped the home achieve NC Healthy Built Home designation while still maximizing natural light and breathtaking views.
Wychmere Pool Bar Pavilion
Gakidis & Stewart
The Wychmere pool bar pavilion is located on the sandy beaches of Harwich Port, MA. Harsh winds, storms, salt water, and the sand of this coastal location were of utmost concern when deciding which windows would be used. Integrity IZ3 IMPACT products were chosen because of their durability and resistance to the corrosive effects of the climate. The other goal of the project was to create an open and social space which the windows helped create with increased natural light.
