An unloved 1970s office block in Bristol’s Redcliffe harbourside conservation area has been transformed into a stylish contemporary apartment development featuring AluK’s versatile 58BW and 58BD window and door systems.
The project at Redcliffe Place in Bristol is part of an award winning scheme by Change Real Estate, which has also included the refurbishment of six adjoining Georgian townhouses previously used as offices into luxury period apartments.
AluK’s slimline 58 window and door systems were chosen for the project because they have a proven track record in this type of residential development and could easily meet the demanding performance specification laid down.
The windows are full height in all of the 14 apartments to make the most of the natural light coming into the open plan living spaces and to provide the best possible views across the city. They are triple glazed throughout, achieving a U-Value of 1.2 W/m2K and have PAS24/Secured by Design accreditation.
The 58BD glazed balcony doors achieve a U-Value of 1.4 W/m2K and, like the windows, maximise the natural light. Architecture by Alec French and all of the windows and doors at Redcliffe Place were fabricated and installed by Cardiff based Vellacine and the main contractors were Integral Build.
