Wausau Windows Become a Part of World War II Memorial

Wausau Window and Wall Systems, of Wausau, Wis., was responsible for manufacturing 56 windows for the National World War II Memorial's public information center and comfort station. The two public structures are set just outside of the memorial; the information center presents detailed background on the memorial and those it commemorates.

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."
