Crystal Window & Door Systems recently earned another accolade for its window products from the Queens (New York) Chamber of Commerce. The Superior Fenestra Award in the Multi-Family Rehabilitation category was presented to Glen Oaks Village, one of the largest multi-family communities in Queens, and Crystal Windows. The Glen Oaks Village window replacement project completed earlier in 2015 was one of the largest in the New York metropolitan area.

“Crystal supplied over 20,000 energy-efficient aluminum and vinyl windows in various styles for Glen Oaks Village,” said Robert Dorsky, Crystal sales representative and project manager for the Glen Oaks window replacement effort. “The project took over a year to complete, supplying windows for over 2,900 co-op apartment units in 134 separate low-rise buildings. We worked closely the entire time with the co-op board and installation contractor Dun-Rite to keep things going smoothly and minimize disruptions for the residents.”

“This project demonstrates not only Crystal’s superior energy efficient products for replacement applications, but also the company’s ability to reliably supply a substantial number of units over an extended time frame for a specific project,” said Steve Chen, COO for Crystal Windows. “Crystal has substantial experience in major projects which require careful design, planning and coordination, and Glen Oaks Village is a perfect example of this.”

The Queens Chamber Annual Building Awards were presented at the association’s 90th gala dinner on December 3, 2015, at Terrace on the Park, which featured New York City Building Department Commissioner Rick Chandler as keynote speaker.
