Project’s perfect fit
After being impressed by the company’s product range at a construction trade show, Stonebridge Homes decided that Black Millwork’s range of window and door profiles were the perfect fit for an upcoming project it was working on.
In June 2017, its team at Stonebridge Homes was tasked with working on large detached home situated in expansive grounds, which contains a substantial garden and an external pool-house. The main house is built from natural stone, which made fitting windows and doors challenging.
One of the issues that Stonebridge Homes had to overcome was the imprecise coursing across a number of the masonry units. The irregular nature of the coursing meant that the developers needed a window and door supplier that could produce units that fitted directly into the natural stone.
Stonebridge Homes said: “This property presented a relatively unique challenge. Much of the stone masonry used across the home was uneven and as a result it was difficult to marry the coursing on the stone with the imperial sizing of the windows.
“When it came to specifying window units we took great care in finding a supplier who could go above and beyond just offering us units that looked great and performed well. We needed a supplier with real expertise and technical know-how about the intricacies of working with natural stone. We found that with Black Millwork and they were on hand to help us every step of the way.”
General manager at Black Millwork Gary Hutton said: “We’ve been on quite a journey with the Stonebridge Homes’ team since meeting them at a construction trade show last year, but it’s been an amazing experience. This was a special project to be involved with and the end results look great.
“Our work on this project underlines how we’re much more than just a window and door manufacturer. Working closely with the developers, we’ve been on hand to impart technical advice, installation tips and have also supplied a number of bespoke aluminium units in the home’s pool-house.”
