Cheltenham Ladies' College
Many of the single glazed windows had come to the end of their practical life and contributed towards significant heat loss. A thermal upgrade was required whilst being in-keeping with a Conservation area.
Replacement like-for-like period style timber windows from the Conservation™ range have been installed. The front elevation is now complete, requiring over 80 casement and sash windows. Not surprisingly the College is within a Conservation area and, although planning permission was achieved for aluminium replacements, the College decided to proceed with timber as the aesthetic of our Conservation™ timber window is more sympathetic to the architectural style of the building.
Manufactured entirely in Great Britain, Conservation™ windows and doors are made from clear grade and engineered Siberian Larch, a slow growing and robust species, which achieves maximum strength and stability in fine joinery. Made to the exacting standards of the British Woodworking Federation’s Wood Window Alliance scheme, Conservation™ windows and doors are BRE A+ rated and achieve excellent levels of acoustic and thermal performance that exceed the requirement of current Building Regulations.
“The installation of Mumford & Wood Conservation™ windows has significantly contributed to upgrading the thermal performance of the junior boarding houses, reducing heat loss and providing improved comfort levels for the buildings' occupants. The College has achieved an Eco-Schools green flag award for its commitment to energy conservation.”
