RICHMOND, Va. – DPR Constriction has hired Commercial Window Shield for a window film removal and window film installation project for Merrill Lynch.
DPR, an international construction company with an office in Richmond, will be carrying out a complete renovation of the 11th floor in the Bank of America building for client Merrill Lynch.
Commercial Window Shield’s role in the project will be in two phases. In Phase 1, the company will remove old solar control window film on 90 window panes covering 3,000 sq. ft. of glass.
In Phase 2, Commercial Window Shield will be installing reflective solar control window film on the same windows. Because of the windows’ large size, the company’s expert installers will have to splice together two sections of the solar control window film on each of the 90 panes of glass.
Phase 1 of the project will be in early 2024. Phase 2 will be scheduled toward the end of DPR’s project, when the renovation is nearing completion. As always, Commercial Window will coordinate its schedule with that of other contractors involved in the project.
Window film removal is becoming an important component of Commercial Window Shield’s business, as warranties on solar and security window films in particular generally expire after 15 years and the films do lose their effectiveness over time.
For more than 40 years, Commercial Window Shield has been a leading installer of window films of all kinds. In addition to solar control window films, the company is expert in security, solar control, switchable smart film, privacy/decorative films, radio frequency [RF] and anti-bird strike window film installation.
Its projects over the years have included the U.S. Capitol, FBI headquarters, the Pentagon, all House of Representative and Library of Congress buildings, Grand Central Terminal, Merrill Lynch headquarters, the United Nations, the Willis [former Sears] Tower, O’Hare and Seattle international airports, and the Philadelphia and Denver mints.
