Ivy League School Continues Window Protection Partnership with Kane Security Brand
ERIE, Pennsylvania – December 17, 2014 – Selecting window protection was at the top of Yale University‘s list during the planning phase of their two new residential colleges, slated for completion in 2017. The Berlin Steel Construction Company and Yale University have elected to install security screens by Kane Innovations on both buildings at the prestigious New Haven, CT campus. The buildings’ design was conceptualized by Robert A.M. Stern Architects.
Prior to this most recent project, Yale University had placed six separate orders with Kane Innovations for hundreds of Narrowline security screens between 2009 and 2010, for use on existing student facilities. The latest order will feature 645 Operable Steel Narrowline screens and 65 Fixed Aluminum Arch Top screens, each with stainless steel woven wire cloth infill.
Once completed, the new residential colleges will join the original 12, which were built between 1933 and 1961.
The decision to expand immediately followed a generous $250 million donation from Yale University alumnus Charles B. Johnson ’54, which was then supplemented by a fundraising initiative totaling over $500 million.
Groundbreaking for the Yale University project is scheduled for February 2015.
