The Horizon C-Series and Single/Double Pitch skylights were used throughout the factory to boost visible light transmittance and a better climate control environment

The Northland Workforce Training Center in Buffalo, New York, is located in an old factory, formerly known as Niagara Machine & Tools Works, which is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

Challenge

The project posed budget, natural lighting and historic preservation challenges. As a historic property, each skylight needed to provide the same appearance as the old skylights it replaced and be approved by the New York State Historic Preservation Office and National Park Services.

Solution

VELUX Commercial developed a custom extrusion. The 23 Single Pitch and Double Pitch skylights range in size from 3' x 12' up to 238' x 7'. The metal-framed skylight structures are thermalized and have various advanced glazing options for maximum energy efficiency.
