Bronze windows ensure improved thermal efficiency!

Bronze windows ensure improved thermal efficiency!

As part of a 50 million pound refurbishment, the Armstrong Building at Newcastle University was fitted with over 2400 double glazed bronze windows. These replaced the original single glazed windows and significantly improved the thermal efficiency of the building.

Architectural Bronze Casements had previously worked with Newcastle University on their Student Union building with some replacement windows, due to its success, they were approached to do the Armstrong Building.

Architectural Bronze Casements worked closely with the university, local planning and conservation officers. The university’s key objectives were the improvement of the window’s efficiency, to maintain the buildings aesthetic, and to uphold the historic integrity of the building.

The original windows were traditional metal casements and direct glazing into stone surrounds. To comply with historic requirements Architectural Bronze Casements designed bespoke ironmongery for the opening bronze windows.

Steve Pyle, the Senior Project Manager said: “This is an excellent product that has significantly improved the thermal, acoustic and aesthetic performance of a Grade 2 listed building”.
