PROJECTS - Schools
Parts of this building, including the hall, date back to 1890, so this was a project where we were able to show our skills in sourcing exactly the right product to fit with the age and character of the building.
We worked with bespoke joinery company NJL Joinery to supply and fit oversized 4600 x 2000mm double glazed timber sash windows in sapele hardwood for the hall, finished in white on the exterior and varnished in the natural wood on the interior to match the existing panelling. We installed Guardian SunGuard SuperNeutral glass to minimise the solar gain, and even expertly restored the original openers to achieve a truly sympathetic refurbishment.
In the other parts of the building overlooking the same courtyard as the hall, we installed a mix of arched head Veka vertical sliders and tilt and slide windows with Astragal bars which matched the external appearance of the timber they were replacing. We also created a new opening in the dining hall and fitted a new set of Comar Commercial aluminium double doors.
Mary Williams, Business Manager at the school, would definitely recommend us: “What we liked was that The Window Company (Contracts) did exactly what we wanted on the project and not just what suited them best. We are delighted with the products they recommended, particularly the new timber sash windows, and with the attention to detail they showed on every aspect of the project.
“We knew that we could trust everyone on the team and, with one project manager responsible for everything on site, they were very easy to work with. Nothing was too much trouble and we would definitely work with them again.”
A member of the prestigious Haberdasher’s Askes’ Federation, Hatcham College in South East London is a high achieving school for 3-18 year olds. The window replacement project was managed by Arcadis Consulting and we were chosen by them to act as principal contractors from amongst Veka’s list of preferred installers.
