Wilmington, Delaware, USA
To honor President Joe Biden, the Wilmington Amtrak train station was renamed the Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Railroad Station. The renaming occurred on the heels of a two-year, $37.7 million renovation project. Kawneer developed the custom extrusions and fabrication techniques needed to install the new aluminum windows in a way that replicated the station’s old wooden windows. The retrofit renovation integrated modern technology while retaining the building’s historical architecture and character.
