Clement Windows are proud to have worked on many well known commercial projects over the years. From sprawling city landmarks to Art Deco marvels, our team have utilised their skills to tailor make our range of windows to fit a wide series of specifications. Here are just some examples of recent Clement Windows’ commercial projects that we have accomplished to the satisfaction of both client and Conservation Officer alike.
In 2014, Clement manufactured and installed W20 metal windows for many of the fine buildings at the University of Manchester. Some of most prominent listed buildings at the institution, including The Beyer Building, John Owens Building and The Christie Library were fitted with bespoke Clement metal windows. Each Gothic structure is of significant national importance and has its own rich history. It was vital that the right range of metal windows were chosen to ensure a sensitive replacement that maintained the correct appearance for this precious group of buildings.
Once dubbed ‘the most amazing public building in the world’ the magnificent Art Deco Listed Norwich City Hall was given the Clement touch in 2013. Clement W20 bespoke steel windows were used to maintain the character of this landmark building. The most recent window replacements, which improved energy efficiency and security, marked the third phase of work to the listed building undertaken by Clement. In recognition of our extensive manufacturing and installation work, Clement was awarded a Perfect Delivery Certificate by the project contractor, Morgan Sindall. During our time in its many rooms Clement saw first-hand why Norwich City Hall is viewed a public building of national and international significance. The mayor’s office is pictured above.
Our exciting roster of past commercial clients have included both UK and international patrons. For over ten years we have been chosen as a steel fenestration company of choice for the prime, Central Park apartment block, Eldorado – an iconic Art Deco building. The Clement team continue to supply our EB24 multi point locking steel window system, chosen by the project contractor, Skyline Windows Inc. As no two apartments are the same, we utilise our collective design knowledge to craft the very best windows for this high rise property that is such a familiar feature of the Manhattan skyline.
Clement Windows were involved in a £30 million restoration project, led by Lifschutz Davidson & Sandilands, to revive the prestigious Bonhams Auction House – one of the world’s oldest and largest auctioneers of fine art and antiques. One of the main challenges when replacing the building’s array of windows was to replicate the set of fifteen curved Art Deco façade windows. Templates were drawn up to assist the design and manufacturing of each unique W20 steel window, which was fitted with toughened, laminated glass. Dark bronze silicone added that final level of detail when reproducing the original putty. The aim was to match Bonhams own set of high standards through our own set of skills and craftsmanship from start to completion.
This grand mid-19th century listed Gothic academic property replaced its 100 year old windows in 2014, and Clement’s EB24 window range with Georgian accessories were chosen for the task. A former refuge and educational institution for Catholic orphans from 1848, the original cast iron windows needed the Clement touch to vastly improve energy efficiency and security. Like any project, we take care to preserve the existing aesthetics of a property. The team removed each intricate window piece by piece to preserve the façade, and 24mm insulated glass units were used with matching silicone fronting. The team displayed the finest level of care and skill to complete this project to the high standards that we are known for.
