8 Bank Row, Pittsfield, MA

This renovation project involved Thermo Expert installing aluminum-clad wood windows in this central and recognizable brick building in downtown Pittsfield. The Backus Building, 4-8 Bank Row, was constructed by William G. Backus, who owned a stove and plumbers’ supply store. A historic tidbit: the roof originally was federal style, but that was changed in 1880 to make a third story with a flat roof.
