The works were undertaken with the supervision of the Planning Authority.

Main contractor: T & E Neville Ltd.
Planners: Bedfordshire Council.

The problem - heritage windows need repair

An existing wing unused for aconsiderable period is to be converted into a Music Room, the windows require upgrading to improve the overall operation of the windows and improve the glazing "u" value from 6W/m2K to 2.1W/m2K.

The solution - heritage window repairs

The windows were stripped back to bare metal and primed, all hinges/pivots/stays were eased to ensure a satisfactory operation.

The sashes were re glazed with a 4/6/4 sealed unit with Pilkington "K" coating applied to one surface, the glazing beads were formed from hardwood to reduce cold bridging to a minimum, resulting in a significant reduction in overall "U" value.
