Installing a window wall at 808 Cleveland in Chicago's Near North

26 September 2022

Ever wonder how they install the windows on all those glassy towers? The teams at 808 Cleveland have nearly completed the process on the 23-story building in Chicago's Near North neighborhood.

In this video you can see builders from trade partner Reflection Window + Wall conducting the process of installing each window, one by one. There are approximately 2,500 individual window panels which make up the facade of the building. At a pace of 40-45 windows installed per day, it takes teams 3 days to complete 1-story of facade.

Focus is acting as the General Contractor for the 808 Cleveland project on behalf of clients DAC Developments and Bayview US Holdings.
