Window Interiors has been honored by Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. of Central Florida for its work on the Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC), a 337,400 ft.² building at Patrick Air Force Base in Brevard County.
Window Interiors provided design support in the customizing and installation of motorized solar and black-out window shades using the intelligent controller Mecho Systems Sundialer Window Management System. This system, completely American-made, tracks the sun by a radiometer and adjusts shade position automatically.
The use of solar energy saving shades minimizes glare and heat, and reduces energy cost. They are made with UV resistant, retardant and antimicrobial materials with a 20 year plus lifespan. The system, which can monitor real-time sky conditions over the course of a calendar year, is designed to generate long-term energy and building savings.
Window Interiors’ award-winning project was led by Project Manager Judy Ernst, Vice President Dave Stockton and Installation Specialist Travis McGowan. A leader in the design and installation of advanced solar shade systems, the Window Interiors team worked closely with Mecho Systems on the new construction project. Hensel Phelps Construction of Orlando was the general contractor on the project.“We are extremely proud to win this Eagle award. We are extremely proud that each part of the window covering system in AFTAC is made in America,’’ said Dave Stockton. “Judy and Travis did an outstanding job of working with both Hensel Phelps and Mecho Systems to keep this project running smoothly and on schedule.’’
