Lomax + Wood

Berkshire Country Home case study from Lomax + Wood

  • 19 Sep 2018

Lomax + Wood have supplied high performance made-to-order timber box sash windows and doors for a stunning country home in Berkshire.

Based on the classic Georgian window proportions, this new build property showcases an entire range of Lomax + Wood products, all providing elegant and pleasing sightlines and proportions.

In total, 39 high performance made-to-order timber sash windows and doors, 26 traditional timber box sash windows with slim 18mm double glazed units and a made-to-order entrance door, with insulated panels incorporating steel inserts for security, all featured.

As well as these, three French door sets hung only for surface fitted espagnolette locking, six Dormer casement windows with horizontal glazing bars were all supplied, using engineered timber under the Lomax + Wood FSC® Chain of Custody.

This sizeable country house, set in an idyllic landscape, has incorporated a plethora of period features to create a desired traditional style.

Lomax + Wood worked closely with clients to guarantee their vision was upheld and that the high performance timber windows and doors produced the correct proportions across the property.

From matching the paint colour to sourcing the desired ironmongery and finishes, Lomax + Wood’s made-to-order service meant the clients requirements were listened to and acted upon.

A primary concern of the architect and client was for the timber was from a sustainable source – Lomax + Wood are committed to this, having worked hard to achieve FSC® Chain of Custody, deemed by many to be an environmental gold standard.

This work was undertaken in partnership with BM TRADA – another mark of quality in our industry.

Lomax + Wood believe too many companies in the industry are passing off their product as being from a sustainable source, with no assurance that it is through industry certification.

Lomax + Wood products have also been independently tested to ensure the building regulations are met including Part Q, which involved a full range of intruder testing by Exova BM Trada.

All Lomax + Wood products are made-to-order – whether you require a traditional style or more contemporary, there are product options available to meet any requirements.
