Tall windows and a unique vision - Welcome to the Beranger Condos

Combining product flexibility with outstanding performance, tall fiberglass windows and weather-friendly aluminum-clad wood doors were a natural choice for this mixed use building.

By Pella | April 5, 2017

The complete package of windows and doors

The Beranger Condos is a mixed-use complex in downtown Gresham, OR. The four-story structure contains 24 condominium units and 7,000 square feet of ground-level retail space. One of the building’s most unique features is its “green roof” that employs cutting-edge environmental technology to manage rainwater – an important concern given Oregon’s climate.

Among the highlights of The Beranger Condos’ design are the tall windows present in the condo units. While the architect originally specified fixed aluminum storefront for these openings, the building’s owner had used aluminum in a previous project and was dissatisfied with their performance. Pella® Impervia® windows provided the quality, aesthetics and cost-effectiveness he was looking for. These products are made from Duracast® material, a patented, five-layer, engineered fiberglass composite that’s exceptionally durable and energy-efficient. And the building’s 264 double-hung, fixed frame and horizontal sliding windows were glazed in a controlled factory environment, saving time and money during the window installation process.

In addition, The Beranger Condos feature doors from Pella in both the condo units and the ground-level retail space. Each condo unit contains smooth fiberglass entrance doors from Pella, while the retail shops feature aluminum-clad wood commercial entrance doors. The product flexibility available from Pella, along with Pella products’ outstanding performance, helped make The Beranger Condos a welcome addition to downtown Gresham.
