    The Challenge

    As a locally listed building constructed in the 1840’s Circle Leasing were faced with the daunting challenge of retaining the historic character of this prestigious site whilst trying to provide a totally modern solution for our staff and tenants. The current windows were a softwood sash and the new dormer loft extension required the design team to knit into the overall design concept.

    Fundamentally we required sympathetic design, high end appearance and an environmentally friendly and efficient construction that would allow our development to move from the 1840’s to the 2014 and beyond.

     

    The Solution

    We reviewed multiple options at the design stage and invited a select number of eligible contractors to provide solutions and recommendations.

    Luxal approached the project with an immense grasp of our objectives and very quickly won our confidence to take our project forward. They were able to provide a wide range of cutting edge aluminium solutions to the varying requirements of the site.

    A replacement of some 40 sash windows, a large dormer design, a large clubhouse and coffee shop frontage- all having to be knitted into a uniform site.

    Their ability to provide a bespoke solution for each of our complex installations together with sound commercial advice added immense value to our overall £2m refurbishment.

     

    Installation Day

    Like many complex projects you are always anxious that things may not go to plan and any delay can critically impact the rest of the project. The team at Luxal met every deadline and when faced with certain technical variances they managed to deal with ease and certainty, ensuring that they met each exacting deadline.

     

    The Result

    Our new office complex has met with critical acclaim and is already a finalist in the North West construction awards. The combination of a historic structure with modern glazing provides the wow factor to a thoroughly impressive and long lasting testament to modern engineering and building design.

    The project also won the National Fenestration Awards Cool Wall Award for March 2014 – voted by registered NFA users – AND the Champions Award for all of 2014 as voted for by industry members.
