Atrium work has started
Why change the atrium windows? The natural light is so nice in winter. We agree. However, there are lots of maintenance concerns regarding our atrium windows. Leaking, heat gain, heat loss, lack of HVAC controls, too much light, not enough light... the list really does go on and on. In a time when we are trying to improve energy efficiencies these windows had to be addressed.

No worries though, the new plan includes lots of windows! There will be plenty of natural light, and it will be more indirect. MACC painting class students won't have to wear visors to be in the room!
Atrium steel arrived yesterday and the headers for the new roof line are installed on the MACC atrium area.

It will take several weeks to complete this work.There will be times when the atrium areas will be open to the elements. It's not ideal, but there aren't other cost efficient options.

Closner is taking many steps to ensure that this is wrapped up as quickly as possible.
