Special Project – Jamie Oliver HQ.  Regents Canal, Kings Cross


Case Study

 
For David Morley Architects & Bam Construction (Main Contractor) – Sash windows were able to provide a unique solution to this historic Canal building at Kings Cross

 
Problem

To provide an effective window solution where space for future cleaning and maintenance was extremely limited due to proximity of the canal whilst retaining the authenticity and aesthetics of the original industrial design.

 
Solutions

ACCOYA was selected for the windows and frames (This material has a very long maintenance/paint cycle of 15 years plus) The rear windows were manufactured as a bespoke design of a combination sliding sash and casement window system which gave the appearance of a traditional sash window with the benefit of the easy access for cleaning the window from the INSIDE of the building. This solution will continually save costs over many years of the project life as well as keeping the original facade design. 

Both the front & Rear of the building also benefited from the Coolight 6mm/16/4 double glazed high solar control glass.
