Case Studies

New alumnium putty line windows replacing art deco style white steel windows in South Kensington, SW7 in block of flats

The clients in this block of flats had been contemplating changing their windows for a few years. We worked with the surveyors to come up with a solution that could be fitted from the inside that Westminster planning would accept.  They had previously wanted steel windows to replace the originals but eventually they accepted our proposed solution with the putty line aluminium product that looked close to the original, but was thermally much more efficient. The putty line astragal bars were a good match for the original art deco bars.

We worked closely with our planning consultant to successfully obtain planning permission.

You Choose completed the first flat in early 2012 and should complete our third flat by end of 2013. With typically over 20 windows per flat, working up to the 7th floor, these jobs require our considerable expertise to install our windows safely and efficiently without the need for scaffolding.

One of the main criteria for changing the windows in this block from the planners point of view was that the new windows would blend in and not spoil the look. From the photos you can see that this has been achieved very well.

We just wanted to tell how very happy we are with our newly installed windows

They have made a huge improvement in looks and warmth.. ! Amazing how  quiet it is with the improved double glazing....we don't hear much of anything at all.. !! We were also very impressed with the way the men installing the windows had put protection down over our carpets and cleaning up after themselves at the end of their work day......They were very considerate and courteous......

We are now wondering why? we didn't have this job done ages ago... !

Sincerely yours

Mr n' Mrs Richard Stewart, London, SW7
