Ten out of ten

When Ridge Architects needed to specify replacement windows for a specialist school in Berkshire, Rehau’s Total70 profile provided ‘the perfect solution’.

For many years the school has been served by traditional timber sash windows, but these were dilapidated and in need of replacement and so the school identified a need to replace the current windows with a profile offering high performance, aesthetic suitability and value for money.

Rehau worked with the Ridges design team and Slough Borough Council to ensure that the original Victorian facade was replicated, and the functionality of the new windows worked for the current occupants.

Hazlemere Commercial was engaged to deliver the project, and Rehau Total70 was selected for the 100 windows due to its compatibility, value for money, energy efficiency and aesthetics.

The profile is well suited for projects involving original traditional timber frames due to the 70mm depth, which allows for the replacement of 3-inch timber frames with less trimming up. The profiles’ stylish design and finish were judged to have the right look and feel for a sympathetic end result, in keeping with the rest of the school building.
