Cherry Hill Public Schools, Cherry Hill, NJ
Originally built in early 1960s and known at the time as New Jersey’s most inexpensively built school building, the original facade consisted of un-insulated glass in an aluminum store front system. Over the years numerous renovation projects further depleted the facade’s ability to resist water and air penetration. BA studied various renovation options leading up to the recommendation to replace the aluminum store front with an externally insulated rain screen metal panel covered steel stud wall system replacing continuous fenestration with high performance punch windows. The facade replacement project has greatly reduced building heating loss.
