Case Study: Window Replacement at Lake Edge Lutheran Church – Monona, WI


We recently completed a project for window replacement at Lake Edge Lutheran Church in Monona, WI. The church was built in the 1950’s adjacent to Lake Monona and serving Madison’s east side neighborhoods including Lake Edge, Eastmorland, and Glendale. The motivation for the project was inefficient, inoperable windows that became a challenge to service over the years. We were tasked with presenting a plan to replace windows with affordable, maintenance-free windows that would last an extended period of time. Our team came up with a detailed replacement plan and completed the project on budget and with respect to a defined timeline.

Replacement Window Project Plan

There were a lot of reasons for replacing the windows at Lake Edge Lutheran. There were many issues with the existing windows such as windows that didn’t operate to ventilate, missing locks, extreme energy inefficiencies, cracked glass, rotted wood, lots of chipping paint, and excessive road noise. The windows are in an area that the church rents out to a Charter School, and a contingency of a continued relationship was a reinvestment and update of the space.
