Hindmarsh Hall, Alnmouth

High performance sealed unit secondary glazing installed in a 250 year old ex granary

Hindmarsh Hall Trustees

The Grade II Listed, Hindmarsh Hall is a thriving Village Hall in the community of Alnmouth, Northumberland. In 2019 the Trustees commissioned a comprehensive condition survey, which highlighted structural issues in the building. Giles Arthur Architects were appointed to complete designs to rectify problems highlighted in the report and make the building more energy efficient to reduce ongoing running costs. In phase one of the works six sealed unit hinged casements (4-12-4) were specified with low-E glazing to provide enhanced thermal insulation, achieving U-values of around 1.67. The tall lancet windows posed a challenge due to their height; 3350mm. These were treated with a Series 41 side hung casement set between two Series 40 fixed light units. Phase two includes the refurbishment of the tall lancet windows and installation of secondary glazing. With the refurbishments being made, it will continue to serve the community for years to come and be a more welcoming and warm space for those using it – whether its yoga, mums and babies’ clubs, Boy Scouts or private function hire for weddings.
