Project Spotlight

Summer 2017
Park Ridge, IL

Earlier this Summer, NSS Inc. received an inquiry to assist with providing a day-lighting solution for a property located in Park Ridge, IL. Upon meeting with the building’s management team, listening to their vision, and then going through an onsite survey, NSS was able to offer several options. While wanting to still honor the history of this mid-1920’s design and incorporate a fresh look, the team decided a VELUX Modular System was the best choice. 

This dual skylight system will allow for plenty of natural light to all below, as well as shade during those warm summer months utilizing the nine (9) electric rollers.

Utilizing the 4000lb straps provided by VELUX, hoisting each 400lb unit made life A LOT easier on the fella's. The entire system consists of two (2) VELUX Longlight skylights roughly 8ft x 15ft. Each module was also upgraded to the Type 11 performance glass with Low E High Efficiency Argon Gas, tempered over laminated glazing. Additionally, each unit has its own electric roller controlled by one keypad.

“Designed with architects in mind, the Modular Skylights system lets you spend more time designing solutions and less time specifying. Modular Skylights can be combined in a number of rooflight configurations, creating perfect solutions for a wide variety of building types: narrow corridors, internal courts, studios, large circulation spaces and much more. Each roof glazing solution is delivered with a special prefabricated flashing ensuring a perfect fit and 100% water tightness."

Although NSS Inc. has been installing skylights for over 50 years, we strive to continue our tradition of excellence while always remaining humble enough to learn. And as a wise man once said, “Success is not owned, it is leased…and our rent is due EVERY DAY!”

From conception to inception, NSS Inc. earned its reputation and once again delivered a beautiful product.

Project - April 2017
American Dawn Inc., Elk Grove IL

Located in the heart of Elk Grove’s industrial park, American Dawn Inc. is this month’s Project Spotlight. Built in 1967, this 55,266 SF manufacturing building has recently received a cosmetic makeover with the help of NSS Exteriors. 

Over 3,100 SF of 24 gauge, pre-finished bronze wall metal paneling were installed at the East, West, and South elevations, and the panels were fabricated “in-house” at the NSS Exteriors shop in Alsip Illinois. Designed by Paul Mitoraj, the horizontal and vertical assembly compliments the dimensions of the building perfectly. The NSS crew (headed up by Jim Mitoraj) provided a water-tight seal with custom flashing and trim while Roofing Solutions, LLC completed the installation of a new RhinoPlate Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) roofing system.

The finishing touch by NSS was a new Marquee Classic (7’ x 4’) Floline canopy. Using a Kynar paint finish, stainless steel hanging rod assemblies, and 3/8” steel backer plates, the entrance is sure to weather any storm. 

At the end of the day, NSS Inc. proved yet again, they were the ‘right stuff’ for the job!
