Throughout AIA Convention 2016, the Center for Architecture and Design will be abuzz with thousands of Convention attendees, shuffling in and out for a coffee, a rest, a chat, and even a beer. But on Thursday and Friday evenings, the Refresh Lounge flips into a watering hole where you can close out your day with a cold one during the Loewen Happy Hour. Grab a Yard’s beer or PennWoods wine at happy hour prices as you enjoy the Parklet Design Competition. Complimentary bottle openers will be given away on a first come first serve basis.
The Happy Hour festivities are generously sponsored by Loewen, a manufacturer of wood windows and doors designed and built for premium residential new construction, renovation/restoration and distinctive light commercial construction. Loewen’s windows are famous for their performance and architectural design. Steve Dean, Loewen Windows Territory Manager for New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania shares that “We work every day to provide architects with interesting and innovative products to help turn their vision to reality, and we’re thrilled to be able to continue to support the national architecture community during AIA Convention”
Founded in 1905, Loewen began as a small sawmill operation in Steinbech, Manitoba. By the 1930’s Loewen Millwork was specializing in windows and doors. Fast forward to the 1980’s when Loewen expanded to the US market and opened its first U.S. branch office in Chicago in 1990. During that time, Loewen introduced the first hurricane rated products for coastal storm environments. Throughout Loewen’s long history, they have driven innovation in the window and door industry through their commitment to authenticity of design and materials.
