Project Scope

  • Type: Multi-Use Commercial
  • Industry: Trade
  • Location: Tempe, AZ
  • Age of Structure: New
  • Area of Structure Involved: All openings in apartment units.
  • Window Materials Used: Fiberglass and aluminum clad wood.







The owner of The Local Apartments in Tempe, Arizona, wanted windows with minimum Sound Transmission Class (STC) ratings of 35 at all apartment units facing University Drive. STC ratings are the average amount of sound stopped by windows, doors and other building materials. We were able to accommodate this request by changing their existing Impervia windows to Architect Series with laminated glass.

Please note that the Whole Foods store on the main floor did not use Pella products. They used aluminum storefront for this portion.

*Reduction in sound based on OITC ratings of Pella Lifestyle Series windows with respective performance package compared to a single-pane wood or vinyl window with an OITC of 19.
