A West Sussex residential project for which we recently manufactured steel windows, steel doors and steel screens has been announced as the winner of an award at the 2021 Sussex Heritage Trust Awards.
Thirty awards were presented overall and the project which is near Arundel won one of the Small Scale Residential Awards.
Clement EB24 metal windows and doors were installed at the Grade II listed 16th-century building. The large expanses of glass allowed lots of natural light in and improved the thermal performance of the building.
The Sussex Heritage Trust is a charity established in 1977 to preserve, improve and encourage the appreciation of the architectural and natural landscape of Sussex.
“When we finally made our decision to modify and extend our 16th century, Grade II building, we knew that we had a challenge on our hands. We owed it to the history and unique position of the existing premises to choose first class materials and workmanship.
Our brief to the architect was that we really needed to maximise natural light as my husband has sight issues. The building faces north, and north east so this was going to be really tricky. The windows were going to be big!
The search for the best then began and luckily some clients of ours recommended Clement Windows. We visited the showroom, liked what we saw and began the design and surveying process. The quality of the steel, the finish and the fit were head and shoulders above anything else that we had looked at. We wanted an unfussy, minimalist profile inside and out. Simple lines and workmanship one could trust. Clement ticked all the boxes.
A few months later the team showed up to fit the glass. We did have certain logistical issues relating to access but these were overcome with good planning. At the end of two weeks, we had a home! The installation of the glass transformed a building site into an incredible, light-filled architectural space that then became the most stunning home we could ever have dreamed of living in.”
