Architectural Aluminum Louvers Installation

The Colorado School of Mines is a small public teaching and research university in Golden, Colorado. Devoted to engineering and applied science, with special expertise in the development and stewardship of the Earth’s natural resources, it is known for its academic excellence.

That is why we believe they chose our company to install aluminum louvers to screen in their HVAC equipment and to add a bit of style to the facade of the Marquez Hall building.

The equipment, located on the roof, is enclosed on all four sides. Anyone looking out of their high rise office buildings or dorm roofs will see a pleasant view. The aluminum louver facade shown in the main picture runs from the ground to the roof and provides architectural relief to the building. It breaks up the design of the other siding that butts up to it and also provides a pleasant looking wall.

What We Did:

We installed approved Construction Specialties Louvers. These louvers are specially designed for these roof top applications. The Facade was also install using the same manufacturer but different model numbers.
