Case Study: Harleyford Court – London
Project Synopsis: Clement EB16 steel windows specified for Lambeth Borough Conservation Area
Harleyford Court is a residential building which sits within the London Borough of Lambeth’s Vauxhall Conservation Area.
Clement worked closely with Lambeth Planning Authority to agree precise details on the replica replacement steel windows for this red brick building.
Clement’s bespoke EB16 steel window range was chosen to replace the existing single glazed fenestration. Despite being fitted with slim 16mm glass units, they benefit from being krypton filled and Part L compliant, offering improved thermal efficiency over that of the original windows.
The project was a great success, Doug Black from the London Borough of Lambeth’s Conservation and Urban Design department said: “It was essential that the building, which is in a Conservation Area, retained its original 1930s character after the refurbishment. We were very impressed with the close match Clement were able to provide to the historic steel windows and with their ability to provide modern thermal performance. We would recommend this company for similar refurbishment projects.”
