Northern Architectural Systems was commissioned to provide more than 3,000 custom windows for the renovation of Manhattan's 42nd Street McGraw-Hill Building, according to a company release.

Northern’s design team worked closely with the building architect and the landmark commission to design a new window system that would replicate the original steel Campbell windows in close detail, and incorporate high energy efficiency framing and glazing. The McGraw-Hill Building was one of four New York City building projects designed by renowned architect Raymond Hood.  It was given Landmark status because of its “Moderne” style and its unique use of blue-green glazed terra cotta tiles as an exterior façade, according to the release.
