Our timeline is fairly short to get the work done here and I’ve been unable to locate a supplier for the studio window assemblies with less than 6-7 week lead. We’re looking for either a pre-assembled vertical glass and angled glass window, or a field assembled unit. Anyone have a good source they can recommend that might be able to beat 6-7 week lead?
It's not preassembled or a field-assembled kit, but have you considered simply spec'ing what you want to the local contractor?
At my last employer (a really large radio network), we would simply specify the specific construction technique as something the local [construction] contractor would build directly. I don't have the plans at hand, but it basically involved a set of blueprint details that showed how two panes of 1/2" glass would be laid in the walls at non-vertical/non-parallel angles with appropriate caulking and sound-proof weather-stripping all around the edges. Of course, the thickness of the wall had to be properly accounted (e.g. due to floating/double wall construction, double layers of 5/8" drywall on both sides, heavy insulation inside the walls, and carpet-style covering on either side) to ensure that the overall window thickness would allow the two panes to have the appropriate angle and clearance inside the window trim.
It worked pretty well at isolating sound, and since it was field-constructed from scratch, the trim and finish ended up matching the rest of the studio build very well.
