New Build Project
This impressive new build project displays stunning architectural designs. Weru bespoke Afino Tec carbon composite windows, french doors and wide span patio doors have all been included in this project. Weru Acento aluminium bifold doors, 48mm factory triple glazed ultra-low E 0.5Wmk2 units have been used to complete this large project. The 3 storey, 8000 sqft property boasts 6 bedrooms & 7 bathrooms. Our client chose their bespoke Weru products to be finished in RAL colour 7016 anthracite grey on both sides, to provide modern kerb-appeal. The huge Weru Atris Life designer front entrance door with quad-pane ultralow E laminated safety glazing which is fitted to RC3 security standards & the storey height glazing with U Value 0.47Wmk2 featuring innovative FiproRau technology, compliments the remarkable impact of this contemporary new build project.
This was a client managed project in conjunction with:
Builders: Wickstead Developments
Architects: Bridge Architects
Architectural Services: 3 D.G Design
Huge Delivery of Weru Goods
With a new build project on this scale, a substantial order arrived directly from our Weru Factory in Germany. Due to the site logistics and the proposed schedule, it was best taking delivery at our UK headquarters in Blackpool. We’re local to the project site, therefore decided to ship frames each day from our warehouse throughout the main installation week. We had a lot on order, which subsequently meant we had 4 large containers to unload!
Topping Out the New Building
Good timing for our fitters, Barry, Steve, Rick & Adam. They arrived on site to install the windows, which coincided with the completion of the complex roof. Never ones to turn down a brew or a bacon sandwich, they joined in the traditional builders ‘Topping Out’ celebrations. It was a brilliant atmosphere on this site, with all trades working well together along side each other. It was a real pleasure to work with Paul & the Wickstead team on this project.
Impressive Designer Entrance
A Weru Atris entrance door takes pride of place in the storey height aperture at the front of the property, flooding the hallway with natural light. The door looks stunning and at 1.25m x 2.7m it’s ideal for this large application of triple glazed laminate solar control units (the door has quad-panes with 88mm krypton filled sealed units). Furthermore, the grey colour choice compliments the exterior slate design & also integrates superbly with the 1.5m slate interior tiles, which greet you upon entry. The property has been finished to an exceptional standard throughout.
Unique Elements of the Project
This high-spec new build incorporates concrete and brick construction with specialist wide cavity insulated walls and floors. Weru bespoke high performance insulated glazing solutions featuring floor to ceiling openers up to 2.7m high. Free-span storey height glazing structures with cantilevered floor concealment using Weu Afino Tec window system, super insulated triple glazing with enamelled black glazing to outer pane creates the spandrel floor concealment system. SFS cantilevered fixing bracket support system enabled fully suspended cavity fix detail (A Weru/SFS/RAL approved partnership).
Contemporary Glass Design
Maximising the potential of our Afino Tec GFP fibre composite profile, massive storey height windows circa 6.5m x 9.5m, again using triple glazing in Weru Klima-Therm special laminated glass system. This is the perfect solution for temperature control, particularly with this area of the property being fitted out as a state-of-the-art gym. The kitchen area houses an impressive 18m glazing combination with Weru panoramic sliders, alongside bi-folding doors, to provide a picture-perfect aspect, to overlook landscaped gardens. All units are triple glazed for maximum comfort in both winter and summer climates. We also utilised spandrel panels in side elevation glazing. The use of black glass to form the spandrel panel conceals the first floor structure within the storey height Weru Afino Tec GFP frames. Clever use of glazing can assist in achieving specialist aspects of building designs, such as this.
Professional Industry Standards
Installed to Weru Group RAL installation certified standards, supplementary products were used. Tremco Illbruck membrane seals and SIGA air tight tapes internal and lower extrenal EPDM barrier membranes ensure the installation process acheives maximum performance from the energy efficient Weru products. Working in conjunction with SFS, the global fixings company, we utilised the new projected fixings system (owing to the wide 150mm cavity wall construction). To our knowledge, Weru are currently the only company outside of Germany who hold a full RAL accreditation certification for installation standards.
