Project requirements

To improve the appearance and energy-efficiency of this 16th century medieval hall house without compromising its character. Many specific requirements demanded by the Conservation Officer had to be satisfied before conservation and planning permissions were granted.



Solution

George Barnsdale supplied traditional timber windows and doors with narrow cavity, krypton filled double-glazing units. After detailed specifications were provided, discussions between the owner and the Conservation Officer gave the planning team assurance on the suitability of the glazing solution.



Benefits

The Conservation Officer supported the application on the basis that the slim (6mm gap) glazing system and overall product design replicated the aesthetics of the existing windows and the traditional design expected of a historic property of this style and age, while improving thermal efficiency.
