A lot of work is being tackled this summer. A new roof was installed on one of the loading docks. Windows continue to get attention. With in-house labor we are able to replace rusted out sections of the steel frames by welding in new material, caulk the perimeter of the windows, replace the badly cracked window panes, and install foam gaskets around the operable sashes in an effort to reduce air infiltration — the biggest source of heat loss. We are remodeling the bathrooms on the third and fourth floors, installing blinds(manufactured right here in the building by long-standing tenant, our own Equinox), and three large studios have been subdivided into seven more affordable spaces
The big project, however, is getting the Clearstory weather-tight for year-round use by Andrus Hospitality, now the exclusive management company operating the Clearstory event venue at the Pajama Factory. This has required, you guessed it, more window work. For the upper windows we are replacing are all 120 of the cracked 2’ X 5’ antique wire glass panes with multi-wall polycarbonate sheets. This will be a huge energy saver and as a bonus we are looking forward to recycling some of that fabulous antique glass else where in the project where is can be appreciated up close.
Finally, the much awaited KINBER fiber optic internet service is now here in the building! We are starting with 100Mbps of bandwidth at Gigabit speed. The 100-year-old Pajama Factory now has the hottest internet service available in Williamsport — incredible! Gamers will totally love the speed and so will serious business users.
