Featured in the December 2015 “Shepformation” Newsletter was a recent project completed with Clay Gilmore of Shepley Wood Products of Massachusetts.
Clay’s project required a custom door solution that was not only functional, but was also able to complement other design elements present throughout the rest of the property. Turning to Upstate Door, Clay was able to take specifications given by Stoltz Building and coordinate the design and production of a high-end solid wood exterior Bi-Fold unit.
“We welcome Upstate Door as a partner for their ability to offer a high end wood entry door system to match your requirements and design needs. Accurate shop drawings, design flexibility, and a high degree of attention to detail, with reasonable pricing, sets Upstate Door apart from the commodity door offerings for entry doors, interior doors, and storm door products.”

1 Old Fulton Street, previously known as the Franklin House Hotel, is located in the heard of the Fulton Ferry District in Brooklyn, NY. Robert Fulton’s invention of the steam-powered ferry in 1814 revolutionized travel and trade from Manhattan to Long Island.
Transforming this building into a modern day Shake Shack was a team of experts- Dennis Noskin Architects joined forces with Two Trees Management, Heights Historic Window & Door LLC and Upstate Door to rejuvenate the building. Facing less than ideal field conditions (such as off-plumb openings and a sloping sidewalk), Upstate Door was able to adjust door slab and mid-rail heights to create a cohesive look.

Upstate Door’s expert sales and engineering departments teamed up with Gill & Gill Architects, Emerson Construction and Interstate + Lakeland Lumber to tackle replicating the St. Luke’s Chapel’s iconic exterior doors.
Requiring a “period correct” restoration of the building, Patricia Gill (Gill & Gill Architects) designed doors to fit both the building’s existing field conditions, and its history. Utilizing an opening template done by Charles Connor of Emerson Construction, Upstate Door was able to precisely manufacture doors and jambs to fit the existing openings, removing the need for field modifications.
