For the last 30 years, Bob Cangemi of Renaissance Building Products has designed louvers, grilles and sunshades for some of the most prestigious projects around the world such as World Trade Center Tower One and Four, Hudson Yards, airports such as LaGuardia, Newark, Toronto, JFK, Ben-Gurion and dozens of high end multifamily towers, office buildings and hotels. He uses the methodology of blending the engineers requirements with the designer’s vision, while keeping the building marketable for the Owner. Now Bob has teamed up with a niche “Made in the USA” manufacturer to push the designs further with high performing louvers , PTAC units and more aesthetic options for the entire construction team.
“Air Performance has a firm grasp on both the technical and design requirements to help us design custom solutions. Their fabrication facility goes way beyond just louvers which is why they can think out of the box when customers come to us with creative ideas. Being nimble is why they are gaining traction in NY and around the country.” Bob Cangemi
