Yara Lewisham is a brand new mixed use development combining 4,000 sq ft of office and retail space on the ground floor with private student accommodation on the floors above. Built on the site of an old industrial unit near to Ladywell Station, it is the latest example of the ongoing regeneration taking place in this part of London.

The 5-storey development with feature brick facades includes aluminium windows and glazed shopfronts installed by the award-winning commercial specialists The Window Company (Contracts). All are in Smart System’s Alitherm range, including close to 200 windows fitted in the 92 en-suite and studio student rooms.

Because Yara Lewisham is located next to the mainline railway line into London Bridge, The Window Company (Contracts) recommended high performance acoustic glass throughout to ensure that the necessary decibel reduction levels were achieved for quiet studying.

The main contractors on the project were HG Construction who awarded the glazing contract to The Window Company (Contracts) on the basis of previous successful collaborations.

David Thornton, Chairman of The Window Company (Contracts), explained that, as a truly independent installer, one of the key strengths of the business is its ability to recommend the right product for every project, with no vested interest in any particular supplier or system. He said: “Our expertise is in installation and our highly trained teams can supply and fit products in aluminium, PVC-U or timber.”

Since the completion of Yara Lewisham, The Window Company (Contracts) has been named the Glass and Glazing Awards’ Installer of the Year.
