Four historic restoration projects for which Universal Window and Door provided windows have received awards from Preservation Massachusetts, a non-profit historic preservation organization dedicated to the Commonwealth’s historic and cultural heritage. The winners will be celebrated on May 8, at the 2019 Preservation Massachusetts Awards, which “celebrates and educates on how preservation is far more than just historic buildings and landscapes.”

The Yarn Works Apartments in Fitchburg, Mass.

The projects to which the Marlborough, Mass.-based manufacturer supplied historic windows won in two different categories.

The Paul and Niki Tsongas Award, which recognizes people and projects that have displayed the highest level of commitment to historic preservation in the Commonwealth, went to Wood Worsted Mill in Lawrence, Mass., and the Jackson Street Lofts in Lowell, Mass. Yarn Works Apartments in Fitchburg, Mass., and the Lowell Community Health Center: Phase II were awarded the Mayor Thomas M. Menino Legacy Award, given to preservation projects that are transformative, community-focused and that “revitalize the best of the past to make something good for the future,” program literature states.

“We are very pleased to have been recognized again this year by Preservation Massachusetts,” said Tony Muraco, president and CEO of Universal Window and Door. “Many of the projects we are involved with date back more than a century since their original construction and use. To be a part of their restoration, and see these buildings come to life is a true source of pride for our company. We are thankful to our customers for selecting our product as their historic window of choice.”
