Whitehall Mill, the historic renovation of the old Clipper Mill from 1865, is located in a FEMA flood zone. FENEX and Floodproofing.com were brought in to supply new passive floodproof window systems that maintained the historical aesthetics of the building. FENEX manufactured 14 windows that were installed in ground floor openings and positioned under the design flood elevation. Each opening consisted of one solid 4’x6’ window where faux mullions were installed to create the architectural look to match the standard windows above.
“FENEX brings a real expertise to the issue of flood protection in historic buildings. The end result is a beautiful historic preservation that is protected from flooding for its new 21st century uses.”
