When joinery specialist Camden Boxframe was awarded the task by Camden Council via an architect of fitting new double glazed sashes and frames into a Grade 2 listed property they were only too aware of the pitfalls that such a project can involve, having built strong relationships with Camden Council directly, as well as building contractors, housing associations and private customers over their 17 years of trading.
The company’s challenge was to ensure the installation of new double glazed, energy efficient windows, which are in keeping with the rest of the building & the surrounding area and so the sashes and frames had to perfectly match the original windows. They achieved this with the aid of Super Spacer in white from Edgetech, a Quanex company, and the installation has become the first of its kind to gain approval from Camden Council.
Calvin Stroud, Managing Director of Camden Boxframe and Calvin’s Mill Ltd explains: “Grade 2 listed properties are notorious for their strict requirements in terms of keeping with the original feel of the building, so it is great that there is such an effective warm edge spacer option which can be used for projects of this nature. We are pleased to announce that this was the first double glazed installation into a Grade 2 listed building to be approved by Camden Council.”
Alan Fielder, Director of Sales and Marketing at Edgetech adds: “We are delighted that Super Spacer has helped Camden Boxframe achieve the first approval from Camden Council for a Grade 2 listed building. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Camden and firmly believe that this approval will be the first of many.”
