Historic Window Survey & Consultation

Tom Clark, of Leeds Clark, Inc., was hired as an historic window consultant for the window preservation/restoration effort on the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas, TX. Due to the building being listed on the national register , Mr. Clark was asked by the architect to perform a detailed window survey to document existing wood window conditions.

Leeds Clark, Inc. participated in the renovation of the 1901 McLennan County Courthouse in Dallas, TX. Leeds Clark, Inc. restored , or replicated, all 200+ historic wood windows, transoms, and doors.

Due to many circumstances, Tom Clark determined there was only one way to approach the preservation effort if he was to follow the specifications, meet the scheduled deadline, and stay within budget.

At the onset of this project, it was the stated desire of the owner to retain the original windows if at all possible, and it was the recommendation of the project's preservation architect and the THC that this was the preferred approach. However, ongoing leakage issues and maintenance concerns cast doubt on the viability of retaining the windows. In order to reach a logical and supportable conclusion to the question, the project architect retained the services of Leeds Clark, Inc. to analyze the historic windows. Leeds Clark, Inc. was asked to take a window apart to analyze its components, then restore the window with new gasketing and replacement glass. The window would then be tested to determine the viability of retaining the windows. If the test was successful, Leeds Clark would supply window components, shop drawings, and specifications for bidding. If the test failed, Leeds Clark would help owner, architect, and the THC come up with a suitable replacement window that kept the integrity of the historic window.
