This project consisted of replacing all windows in the original Business School Building constructed in 1949 along with major exterior brick replacement, tuckpointing and parapet reconstruction.
Jens Construction was involved in preliminary design and estimating one year prior to project to establish cost for Marquette.  The old glass block window and stone heads/jambs were replaced with a new 1” insulated glass unit and precast head that not only let in more light to the classrooms but increased the heating/cooling efficiency of the building.   The entire project was completed in three months during the summer to avoid any classroom disruption, was completed two weeks a head of schedule and under Project Budget.MU Straz Windows Int.
