Universal Window and Door provided windows for a half-dozen of the historic restoration projects that were recently honored with the 2017 Paul & Niki Tsongas Awards by Preservation Massachusetts. The company manufactures custom window solutions for historic restoration and commercial construction projects.

The winners will be recognized at a Preservation Massachusetts event on May 10.

Projects that Universal supplied windows to include: Abbott Mill in Westford, which won “best overall project” and added 100 additional apartment units to the existing complex; Junction Shop Mill in Worcester, which was transformed into 173 apartment units; the United Teen Equality Center in Lowell; Malden Mills in Lawrence, which was converted into 62 units of affordable housing (Phase II of Loft Five50); the Edge at Union Station in Worcester, which adapted the historic Osgood Bradley building into 81 suites to house approximately 250 students; and the Powerhouse, a 1925 brick steam plant at Amherst College that was re-born as a student activities center.

“Being a part of so many projects that were recognized by Preservation Massachusetts is a tremendous source of pride for our employees as well as a testament to our growing reputation among developers and construction firms as the go-to window manufacturer for historic renovation projects,” says Universal president and CEO Tony Muraco.
