Project Synopsis: Clement steel windows chosen for City of London refurbishment project
Clement steel windows were chosen for the refurbishment of this double-fronted office building set within a busy part of the City of London near Smithfield Market. Surrounded by narrow cobbled streets it is situated on the boundary of the Smithfield Conservation Area.
Blenheim House Construction (BHC) selected windows from the Clement EB24 range because they best suited the original look of the building and allowed for the maximum amount of light to flow throughout the property. Natural light was an important aim of this high specification refurbishment – central to the building is a mezzanine which creates a dramatic light-filled double height space.
The windows are polyester powder coated in matt RAL 9005 (Jet Black) to match the frames as a finishing touch.
Matthew Brown, Project Manager at BHC, commented:
“We found Clement’s management team to be attentive, promptly addressing queries when raised and offering solutions and advice when called upon. This resulted in the windows being installed in a safe manner as per our agreed programme, and perhaps just as importantly, the client being pleased with the look of the end product.”
