After the historic St Mary’s Hospital in Bristol received planning approval for Commercial refurbishment, Mumford & Wood were contacted by M R Allen Limited to help transform the old healthcare facility to student accommodation. The building had been vacant for a number of years before the project to transform the space into 153 premium student rooms got the go ahead.

The original hospital building was retained, with the addition of a 4 storey extension, a 3 storey new build, 8 no. townhouses and a new Communal space for students which includes an on-site gym, entertainment room, lounge and kitchen for private dining.
Planning dictated that this undesignated heritage asset retained many of its original features, sat within a setting of various listed buildings and in a Conservation area.

This led to Mumford & Wood recommending timber Box Sash Windows from the Conservation range.

All 109 box sash windows were manufactured in Mumford & Wood’s British factory featuring high acoustic performing trickle vents & laminated glass in 24mm double glazed units, ensuring noise travel is kept to a minimum between accommodation.

Mark Allen from M R Allen Limited explains;
“We chose Mumford & Wood for their long-standing reputation for manufacturing British made, traditional timber windows – exactly what this project required. We also had some stringent acoustic performance requirements and working closely with Mumford & Wood allowed us to create a product that exceeded our performance expectations.”

Mumford & Wood finished the windows in ‘Signal White,’ featuring polished brass ironmongery.
