Season Master Windows played a key role in redeveloping Oaks Industrial Estate, in which it operates from on a daily basis. After the estate owners made the decision to update the site’s 15 existing units, the company was contracted to supply a selection of new windows for the project.
To ensure that the renovation would result in the improvement of the estate’s environmental credentials, Season Master Windows was asked to supply thermally efficient units. The company had to fabricate and install the replacement windows within 8 weeks, to meet the development’s tight deadlines.
Season Master Windows contacted its primary aluminium supplier, Kestrel Aluminium Systems; the Birmingham-based company was asked to supply the product kit required for the fabrication process. The products were delivered within two working weeks.
To meet the estate owners’ specification, Season Master Windows constructed a number of its 60mm Window Systems to provide maximum thermal performance. The windows were ‘top hung open out’ to enable natural ventilation, whilst trickle vents were specified to ensure a constant flow of air.
The aluminium profiles have enhanced the contemporary aesthetic of the refurbished site, whilst offering economical and security benefits.
