Arden Windows

Arden Windows supplied and installed all of the bespoke timber windows on the Historic Leybourne Chase Manor House, Clock Tower and Gardener's Cottage. The Manor House was originally built in the 1800s and was the residence of Sir Joseph Hawley, 3rd Baronet, a former racehorse trainer and breeder. It later became a hospital specialising in Mental Health Care.

Once the hospital was decommissioned in 1996 the Manor House stood derelict until it was later purchased by Taylor Wimpey and renovated into luxury apartments. When Taylor Wimpey originally purchased the land to build over 700 properties it was stipulated in the planning conditions that the Grade II Manor House was restored, not only to reach the required aesthetics, keeping in line with the heritage statement, but also had to meet the current UK building regulations and NHBC standards.

Arden Windows Ltd played a key part from the beginning of this project: we surveyed the existing windows and designed a new product that was sympathetic in design to the original windows, as well as meeting the required thermal and security ratings to comply with the present-day building regulations. This meant matching the original profiles on the frames and sashes, producing the drawings to allow Taylor Wimpey to get the designs approved with British Heritage and planning. Once the designs were approved we had the task of manufacturing and installing over 200 windows/doors to non-standard bespoke sections, which meant we had to purchase additional tooling for our CNC machine.

Camel Glass and Joinery

This project aimed to develop an Architectural Showroom, creating a premier destination for showcasing the breadth and sophistication of Camel Glass products and services. The primary goal was to construct a space that not only serves as a dynamic exhibition platform but also as an architectural marvel that reflects the innovative spirit and quality craftsmanship inherent in Camel Glass.

Large, strategically placed glass panels will not only flood the interior with natural light but also provide a seamless transition between the exterior and interior, creating an immersive experience for visitors.

Internally, the layout of the showroom will be meticulously planned to optimise the display of Camel Glass products.

The showroom would aspire to be more than a display space; it would aim to be a testament to the transformative power of architectural glass, positioning Camel Glass as a leader in the industry.

EYG Commercial

The Tree Tops development, just 10 minutes from Hull city centre , is a commercial development like no other. Five timber-built pods, designed in the style of woodland treehouses, challenge the conventional wisdom of what business space should look like.

They are part of Brooklands Property Holdings’ Hesslewood Office Park and, nestled in woodland on the edge of the park, are home to a variety of businesses.

All of the windows and doors in the pods were fabricated and installed by EYG Commercial, using exclusively AluK products.

The developer wanted to maximise the views with floor to ceiling windows, and install bifold doors to fully reveal the glorious parkland setting for their business occupiers, who range from blue chip companies to small start-ups.

The developer wanted the space to be flooded with natural light, to create calm and tranquil workspaces.

The brief was to create something out of the ordinary, that was suited to the grand surroundings of the listed building it is situated within the grounds of, and which blended in seamlessly and yet was practical and attractive to businesses as a commercial let.

Our aluminium window and door systems also filled the brief for being thermally efficient, robustly strong, and secure.

OpenSquare Glazing

Our client was an architect who was adjoining a new build dwelling to his existing refurbished Barnhouse in Hertfordshire, and wanted a structural glass link between the 2 properties.

We designed, supplied and installed this element in under 6 weeks, and while craning the 300kg roof into place, literally had 10mm tolerance to install.

We also installed our slim aluminium open corner pocket doors to the new dwelling, as well as our own rooflights.

Great images online and a raving review from our client, which has led to a very large number of views on our Instagram page, as we had a drone photographer capture the project.

TP Improvements

The project saw the installation of aluminium windows and doors in a textured black finish (Obsidian Black Textured) for a new high street boutique shop in the picturesque village of Lindfield in West Sussex. This included French Doors, Fixed Windows and Casement Windows. The shop has a very sustainable feel, we worked with a builder who uses our services for other projects, and completed all installation work within the time frame for it to be ready for its grand opening.

Tradeglaze (Lincoln)

Lincolnshire property developer and contractor Stirlin Developments appointed Tradeglaze as part of a 4-way Team Lincolnshire collaboration project to supply our award-winning aluminium curtain walling and aluminium windows and aluminium doors for new Duncan & Toplis and Wilkin Chapman LLP offices at Oxley House in Louth.

Oxley House is a landmark in architectural innovation, offering 10,000 sq. ft. of state-of-the art office space. Our role encompassed designing, manufacturing, and installing aluminium curtain walling and windows, leveraging Senior Architectural Systems’ cutting-edge profiles.

The project demanded intricate collaboration and versatility, which we delivered with distinction.

YES Glazing Solutions

Situated in the idyllic town of Sevenoaks, Kent, the Sevenoaks School Window Restoration Project is a remarkable endeavour that seamlessly marries tradition and modernity. The ambitious project involved the replacement of the Crittall Steel W20 single-glazed arch windows with traditional leaded and stained-glass windows, rejuvenating the school's historic charm while enhancing its aesthetic appeal.
