Bristol’s Grade II-listed Electricity House has been transformed into a mixed-use development of 85 luxury apartments and commercial space. The restoration project involved the recreation of many of the building’s original art deco features, including the style of the window and door systems from Smart Architectural Aluminium.
A total of 225 Alitherm Heritage windows, supplied and installed by Techniglaze, were installed between the first to fifth floors of the building. The slimline system accommodates 36mm double glazed units which cater to a variety of acoustic requirements.
The Alitherm Heritage system also enables a ‘B’ grade energy rating to be achieved when fabricated with the correct specification and glazed unit.
On the fifth floor, fully opening windows were fitted, as opposed to the lower floors where dummy vents and opening lights have been temporarily installed until the surrounding area is pedestrianised, at which point the lower floor windows will be made openable.
To facilitate the installation of a natural ventilation system, additional head boxes have been fitted to the top of these windows.
In addition to the Alitherm Heritage system, 10 sets of double doors using the Smart Eco Futural system were installed to provide an elegant and thermally-efficient solution for the fifth floor balcony doors, together with seven sets of SmartWall commercial doors for the ground floor retail areas – including one automatic door for the disabled access entrance.
All window and door profiled were specified in a dark brown polyester powder coat finish (RAL 8070), matching the buildings original fenestration.
