Bird Safe glass is a popular choice when environmental considerations are paramount.
The Hudson Valley Farm Hub is a non-profit center for regenerative agriculture located on 1,500 acres of prime farmland in Hurley, New York. The farm provides farmer training, hosts agricultural research, and serves as an educational resource for food and farming advancements. In 2017, the Farm Hub hired MASS Design Group to design a new 27,000 square foot building to house farm equipment and provide office and meeting space.
From its inception, the new building was designed and constructed with sustainability in mind. The goal from the start was to create the most sustainable facility possible. Geothermal heating and cooling systems, a large roof-mounted solar array, an efficient building envelope, reclaimed materials, and bird-friendly glass designed to minimize bird collisions.
The architects for the Hudson Valley Farm Hub selected GlasPro Bird Safe Ultraviolet Reflective glass for the large-scale windows of the building. The ultraviolet reflective panels make the glass visible to birds and help to prevent bird strikes. The special panels, while being visible to birds, are virtually transparent to the human eye. Our proven Bird Safe Ultraviolet Reflective glass has become our most popular choice by architects and glaziers. GlasPro partnered with Marvin Windows to deliver Bird Safe glass in specially-made Marvin sashes.
