Project Synopsis: EB24 steel windows at their best!
Nikki Hounsell, Property and Estates Manager at Henley College said: “Clement were selected to replace the windows in the historic old manor house on our Rotherfield site last year. We were very pleased both with the quality of the finished product and the installation which was carried out carefully and efficiently by their installation team under the supervision of an excellent site foreman. We would be pleased to recommend both the product and Clement windows in future.”
The architectural team at Henley College, a sixth form college in Oxfordshire, specified EB24 steel windows for the refurbishment of one of its two sites, ‘Rotherfield’. The Victorian Gothic style building had original white steel windows which after 150 years of use were no longer fit for purpose. After researching the market, EB24 was chosen as the right product to replace the existing windows due to its elegant appearance, ability to be made into beautiful patterns to match the existing windows, great security and energy performance.
Unlike the Victorian windows, the new windows were specified to be dual colour, anthracite grey on the outside, skilfully creating an illusion of even less frame and pure white on the inside, to match the décor. The stunning shaped windows here are fitted direct to stone which is another example of the benefits of steel windows.
