AluK’s versatile 58BW window and 58BD door systems helped transform an unloved, uninspiring 1970s office block in Bristol’s Redcliffe harbourside conservation area into a stylish, contemporary apartment development.
The project at Redcliffe Place is part of an award-winning scheme by Change Real Estate, which also included the refurbishment of six adjoining Georgian townhouses into luxury period apartments.
Alec French were the architects for the 1970s conversion, using contemporary cladding framing floor-to-ceiling windows to create a striking visual contrast with the Georgian terrace.
Our slimline 58 window and door systems were chosen for the project thanks to their proven track-record with this type of residential development, easily meeting the demanding performance specification laid down.
The windows are full height in all 14 apartments, making the most of the natural light coming into the open-plan living spaces and providing the best possible views across the city. Triple-glazed throughout, they are PAS24/Secured by Design-accredited and achieve a U-Value of 1.2 W/m2K.
All of the windows and 58BD glazed balcony doors at Redcliffe Place were fabricated and installed by Cardiff-based Vellacine, and the main contractors were Integral Build.
