The project involved manufacturing, supplying and fitting over 250 factory complete custom made sliding sash windows as well as some fire rated windows as the existing sliding sash windows of this office block were in an irreparable state. Marvin Architectural had to meet Westminster Council approval and the fire rated windows were submitted for testing to ‘Chiltern’, a certifying body that is part of the ‘Trada Group’.

Being in Central London, parking was difficult and so co-ordination of deliveries had to be well organised. The office refurbishment process required extensive consultation with the planners and Marvin Architectural’s technical personnel worked closely with the architects, Dyer Brown Associates, to ensure that suitable detailed drawings were developed and the optimum specification for the window performance was achieved. Installation team surveys were also provided beforehand so that the installation of windows for this large-scale office would run smoothly.

Marvin’s Wood Ultimate Sliding Sash Windows were selected due to their high performance, accuracy and style. Consistent and reliable lead times were also a major factor in this project and Marvin were able to deliver and complete the project on time and at a fixed contract, on target and on budget..
