public information center and comfort station. The two public

After construction on the memorial began in September 2001, Wausau
provided 20 double-hung 3150 series windows and 36 project-in
2250 series windows. All of the units feature Viracon's VE-85
low-E, laminated glass.
According to project manager Glenn Marquardt, the high-performance
windows are complemented by a unique grill design displaying the
memorial's special star emblem. Linetec finished the custom grills
and window frames in pewter anodize.
"They made up the batch especially for the 4,545 square feet
of metal," said Marquardt. "Everything had to be done
to a 'T.'
Given the significance of this project, we took great care to
meet the very high standards."
