LOUIS – HITT construction has retained Commercial Window Shield for a multiple window films installation project in the tallest building in St. Louis for the federal government.
The project involves the installation of privacy, decorative and security window films on multiple floors in the building where HITT will be doing a complete buildup. The tenant is the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the building, which consists of 42 floors, is known as One Metropolitan Square.
Specifically, Commercial Window Shield will be installing decorative window film on all interior glass fronts – doors and partitions – on each floor where HITT is contracted to handle renovations. Additionally, the company will be installing privacy film on first floor exterior window and 8-mil security or bomb blast film in one section of the building.
Commercial Window Shield will work closely with HITT sub-contractors on scheduling. Its work is expected to be completed in early fall.
The company has had a working relationship with HITT, one of the country’s leading general contractors, since 2008. In addition to HITT, Commercial Window Shield works with other top general contractors, including DAVIS, Rand Construction, D Watts, Harvey-Cleary and Gilbane Building Co.
Commercial Window Shield’s major focus has been security and solar control window film installation. But in addition to privacy/decorative films the company also is expert in installing smart/switchable, Radio Frequency [RF], anti-bird strike and polycarbonate protective glass systems.
Its clients 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.
