Conservative conservation installation
Picton Glass and Joinery completed a renovation project recently in one of Liverpool’s key conservation areas.
A total of 48 windows were installed on the Parkfield Road building, which is home to nine apartments in the Sefton Park area, and the project took around three months to complete.
Frank Hare, owner of the Glazerite UK Group customer, was approached by a long-standing customer to supply and install the windows, and together they worked with the city’s conversation department to satisfy specific planning requirements, which included providing sample windows and technical information for prior approval.
The installation included a selection of products to the front of the property, including Residence 9 Flush Casements and Veka vertical sliding windows, with Veka FS70 casements to the sides and rear of the building.
The original timber architraves were retained inside to keep the authentic period appearance, and all were finished in a white foil.
Glazerite’s group director Jason Thompson said: “Looking around at the surrounding properties that still retain original windows it is very in keeping with the heritage style, but with greatly improved security and thermal efficiencies, and Frank’s customer will have much less upkeep over the years to come.”
