Home to the Department of Human Development and Family Studies and Lu’s Café, the Family Studies Building at the University of Connecticut features ornamental limestone cornices and window surrounds, mass brick masonry walls, slate and single-ply membrane roofs, and copper gutters.  The steel-framed, single-paned windows were part of the original circa 1950 construction.  SGH developed a window replacement program that preserved the original appearance of the building while improving the windows performance.
