Cheyenne Pepper’s marketing firm Foto Crush needed a new home. The search led her to the historic Olympic Mills building, a tastefully renovated warehouse with a spacious light-filled corner office. It was perfect except for the railroad running directly outside.
“We do design and photography for clients like Dreamworks, Disney, and Apple and love working in natural light. The office, with all of its windows, seemed perfect except I cringed at the thought of blasting train horns and worried that the windows would be too drafty.”
She told the property manager that she’d take the space if he’d soundproof windows for the office and block the drafts coming through them.
“Acoustic Grade Indow window inserts seemed to be the only solution to insulate the noise.” Mike Larkin, the Elliott Associates Broker and Property Manager said. “We realized that if we fixed our window problem we could lease the space for market rates… instead of leasing far below market. The return on the investment has been outstanding and we like happy tenants!”
“After the installation, when the next train went by, we all looked at each other because the windows were so quiet. We had a little celebration!” said Cheyenne.
As for the drafts? “We all have our desks next to the windows… There are no drafts. The space is cozy and our heating bills are lower too.”
Mike is also happy.
“The noise reduction is so impressive we put Indow Windows into the second floor offices for another tenant. They used to have to interrupt their conference calls but now with soundproof windows for the office they don’t even notice the train noise. We have budgeted to upgrade the entire west side of the Olympic Mills building with Indow Windows.”
