Supplying premium quality architectural aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling for decades, High Wycombe-based Hazlemere Commercial has won respect throughout the industry for its impressive track record of successfully completed projects for schools, colleges, universities and local authorities – but it also excels at renovating residential buildings too.
Late last year, in line with the requirements of CDM 2015, the firm carried out a thorough-going £925,000 + VAT rejuvenation of the Hyde Park Towers property development – a 1970s-built medium-rise residential block on London’s busy Bayswater Road overlooking Hyde Park, now home to 60 high-end apartments and a luxurious penthouse in what has now become one of the capital’s most desirable areas.
The extensive renovation project involved the removal of the building’s existing steel windows, and replacing them with Sapa Dualframe 75 Si white polyester-coated aluminium alternatives. The firm also replaced several external doors with Sapa Crown aluminium double glazed residential doors, and fitted two sets of new Sapa Crown aluminium sliding patio doors to the penthouse. In addition, Hazlemere Commercial carried out associated works including scaffolding, redecoration, and the installation of a new fire detection system, all in accordance with the latest building regulations.
Hazlemere’s Commercial Division won praise from Levy, the property management firm who hired it for the project: “We have found that Hazlemere were refreshingly co-operative and attentive to our needs and to our residents,” commented Gary Barlow, Associate with Levy’s Building Consultancy team. “The firm was conscientious and thorough in their work with excellent attention to detail.
Hazlemere’s methodology of phasing work into four stages worked very well, ensuring that scaffolding wasn’t in place for the whole duration of the project. Their handling of the whole process was exemplary and the service at each stage was outstanding.”
Hazlemere Sales Director Tony Beale commented: “It was fantastic collaborating with Levy on this project, and both they and the residents of Hyde Park Towers were a joy to work with. We look forward to doing so again in the future.”
