Head office transformation
Hazlemere Commercial has helped transform the head offices of a major UK construction company on the very busy Cressex Business Park in High Wycombe.
Working for office design specialists Vibe Business Interiors, Hazlemere replaced every window in the building as part of the £1.4 million renovation project.
The whole refurbishment project had to be completed in just 16 weeks, in which time Hazlemere removed 150 windows and several doors from the existing building, and then replaced them with Sapa alternatives, manufactured in its own High Wycombe facility in Bucks.
Hazlemere installed 153 Sapa Dualframe 75 aluminium windows, two automatic Sapa Stormframe ST2 aluminium entrance doors, and two Sapa Stormframe ST2 fire rated fire escape doors.
The company also installed a large area of Elegance 52 double-glazed curtain walling for the building’s front facade and main reception area.
Hazlemere sought to minimise the ecological impact of its work on the development, which meant: all paper, cardboard and paper packaging produced during the installation was recycled; all aluminium offcuts were melted down to be reused; and all removed metal frames, spray tins and plastic cleaning bottles were taken away and processed by a specialist waste management company.
“This was a challenging but hugely rewarding project for us,” Hazlemere’s sales director Tony Beale said. “We were up against an extremely tight deadline, and a quick and clean installation was vital if all other phases of the refurbishment were going to finish on time.”
