Post Office transformed into warm and comfortable apartments

Client: A&F Pilbeam

This Grade II Listed regency style building has been given a new lease of life after being transformed from cold and draughty Post Office into warm and comfortable apartments. The original windows house single panes of glass which give minimal insulation whilst the original frames are draughty. However given the Listed status of the building the original windows had to be retained.  To address the problems with the original windows Selectaglaze was consulted. Selectaglaze is highly experienced in treating original regency windows. Due to the bespoke nature of each unit together with the quality of design, materials, manufacture and fitting, Selectaglaze treatments ensure optimal benefits. The addition of a secondary window fitted to the room side of the primary window can improve its thermal qualities by up to 60%. To raise the building to twenty first century standards, Selectaglaze manufactured and installed 75 bespoke secondary glazing units. To meet the specific requirements of each window, a mixture of Series 20 and 25 vertical sliding units where used with 6.4mm laminated glass throughout.
