TOLEDO, OH (October, 2012) —
Jesup W. Scott High School (pictured above) turns 100 years old spring 2013. The five-story, 250,000 square foot high school underwent a massive $42 million dollar overall renovation, which began in April 2010. The architects’ intention of this extraordinary renovation project was to restore the building nearly to its original design. Capitol supported the objective through supplying custom engineered and custom manufactured aluminum products with high performance finishes.
The building has approximately 950 windows, many of which are dual radius round top and s-shape curved units. Capitol supplied 325 ES aluminum windows with low-“E” insulated glass, integral blinds/hinged access panels, and sliding wicket screens on the first three floors. Internal and external applied muntins were included to bring back the historical aesthetics of building into the modern day world. S-shaped curved (signature) windows were custom engineered for this project to fit the openings on the fourth clerestory. Capitols’ windows brought new light and fresh air inside where areas had been boarded up for years.
Capitol 500 WS aluminum entrances featured flush pulls with a 10" mid-rail. The accompanying 245T Storefront frames incorporated an arched transom with horizontally divided lites. Curtain wall framing was included on the back side of the building at the gymnasium.
Capitol submitted information to contribute to LEED point attainment for the project, meeting credits for MR4.1; 4.2 (Recycled Content) and MR5.1; 5.2 (Regional Materials). The Jesup W. Scott HS project is currently registered with the U.S. Green Building Council pending target certification (meeting or exceeding) LEED Silver.
