Astor Windows Completes Biltmore Hotel's Presidential Suite

Astor Windows has successfully completed the installation of impact windows and doors at the Biltmore Hotel Presidential Suite.

Last April, the Biltmore Hotel selected Astor Windows as the glass and glazing contractor to supply and install the windows and doors at the 13th Floor Suite. Upgrading the windows and doors is part of the restoration efforts to bring the hotel up to current building codes. Astor Windows installed custom-made impact windows and doors manufactured by Venice, Florida-based PGT Industries.

Given the Biltmore Hotel's national historic landmark designation, this project required special design considerations. Additionally, the existing conditions demanded a high level of precision when taking the field dimensions and fabricating the product. This has been another successfull project for Astor Windows and Doors, our engineering firm Structural Engineering Consultants, as well as for PGT Industries, which delivered the custom-made product ahead of schedule.

Astor Windows Selected as the Window Specialist for the Tin Box

The Tin Box is a single-family house designed by Holly Zickler and David Rifkind, located in South Miami, Florida. In 2008, Holly and David purchased a corner lot with a plan to build an environmentally sustainable house. On January 5, 2011, they had the existing house demolished. On August 16, 2011, they chose Astor Windows and Doors as their window supplier and installer. Since the demolition to the present, a lot has taken place. You can follow their journey at Somi Green House.

Astor Windows is fortunate to be working with both Holly and David on this unique project. Astor will be supplying and installing impact-resistant windows and doors manufactured by CGI Windows and PGT Industries, respectively.
