This 100-year-old church proudly sits in the heart of Missoula, Montana. A neighborhood cornerstone, this retrofit project is located a stone’s throw from the bustling downtown filled with local iconic ice creams shops, coffee shops and river life. The church campus sprawls an entire city block with a main sanctuary, community hall, rows of classrooms and play grounds.

The multi-story facility is constructed of red brick masonry with tan stone caps. The sanctuary has a number of large scale stained glass windows. The beautiful stained glass is anchored by rows of basement windows on the façade. Both sets of windows are receiving updates, bringing this Centennial structure into the 21st Century.

Glo A5 Double pane windows, with a decorative frame profile, were selected for this window retrofit. The increased size in the frame detail creates a façade that is better suited to the building’s classic design. The retrofit Glo European windows provide increased energy-efficiency with high-performance spacers, argon filled glazing, low-e glass, and a larger continuous thermal break. The advanced thermal technology in the double pane glazing delivers cost effective durability while remaining a sophisticated and classic design choice.
