Fast-moving aluminium fabricator the Window Outlet has continued a run of recent successes with its involvement in a high-end residential project that’s gone on to win a prestigious Local Authority Building Control Award.
The development, a stylish, contemporary Fourways property constructed by respected West Country installation experts Bespoke Building Contractors, saw The Window Outlet supply AluK BW58 Windows, BD58 Doors and BSF70 Bifolds, and was subsequently named ‘Best Individual New House’.
As a project, it wasn’t without its challenges, as Bespoke Building Contractors MD Dan Arathoon explains: “By far the biggest issue we faced was the location – we had to design the whole house around an extremely old ash tree in the garden, subject to a preservation order. It took two years just to get planning permission! Once we got the go ahead, a huge amount of thought and careful planning had to go into implementing the design – we had to use piled foundations to avoid disturbing the tree’s routes, for example.
“We also had to ensure we followed strict conservation guidelines, working closely with our architects and others to choose materials in-keeping its surroundings, like random rubble stone and copper for the roof.”
“It was certainly a challenge, but we specialise in tricky projects at Bespoke Building Contractors, so we took it all in our stride. It was a fantastic development to be a part of – and, as always, The Window Outlet were a joy to work with. Given all the other issues we had to contend with, we were hugely grateful that The Window Outlet made sourcing and fitting the doors and windows so simple – it certainly made our lives so much easier!”
Ben Warren, Managing Director of the Window Outlet commented: “We’re obviously always pleased when our products get specified – but we’re especially delighted when they get incorporate in developments like this one. Bespoke Building Contractors did a fantastic job in incredibly challenging circumstances – and you only have to take a look at the finished building to know the LABC award was incredibly deserved!”
“At the Window Outlet, projects like these, whether residential or commercial, are our bread and butter. If you’re looking for a reliable, dedicated aluminium supplier offering lead times and quote turnarounds virtually unheard of outside uPVC firms, then don’t hesitate to give us a call!”
