Tempco Glass Fabrication recently supplied its first major insulating glass project, a large-scale historic warehouse adaptive reuse renovation in New Jersey.

The company launched its insulating glass operation last year.

Tempco Supplies Glass to Kearny Point Bldg 78The 207,000 square-foot project, known as Building 78, is the first of several planned redevelopments in the Kearny Point Industrial Park.

For the four-story building, Tempco fabricated 16,500 square feet of insulating glass units (IGUs). Large storefront glass was installed on the first floor, while the upper floors and the penthouse areas received window wall systems.

Tempco fabricated all the 1-inch-thick IGUs with ¼-inch Comfort Select 73 low-E tempered glass from AGC, a ½-inch aluminum spacer and a ¼-inch clear tempered pane. IGUs were glazed into the storefront and window wall framing at the jobsite. Elite Glass of Jersey City, N.J., and Manhattan, N.Y., installed the glass.

The development is located on the Kearny Point peninsula, between Jersey City and Newark, N.J., at the confluence of the Hackensack and Passaic Rivers. Recycling and real estate conglomerate Hugo Neu Corporation of New York, N.Y., acquired the site and its 2.4 million square feet of warehouse and distribution facilities in the 1960s. It is now seeking to redevelop and repurpose six of the property’s 18 buildings.
