Northfield Glass restores the heritage of town pub

Tags:   |   Added:

The new PVC-U frames complement the heritage look of the building perfectly but it’s warmer and there’s less road noise.

The village’s residents obtained a government loan to buy the pub when it came up for sale in 2013, fearing the loss of an important part of their community.

“It was clear to see the pride that local people had in the pub”, explains Northfield Glass’ Managing Director, Fred Atkinson. “It was very important to the Parish Council that the replacement windows were stylistically true to a building of its era and that the original grey colour of the old timber frames was maintained.

“Everyone was impressed with VEKA’s Fully Sculptured casement and Vertical Sliding windows. Georgian bars and sash horns helped to complete the period look, and the Agate Grey shade from VEKA’s Variations colour range was a near-direct match for the original windows. All in all, it combined to give the building a really inviting appearance – essential in a good pub!

“Obviously, one of the main benefits of installing PVC-U windows is their longevity. The old timber frames that came out of the pub had perished significantly – an inevitable symptom of using wood unless regular, costly and time-consuming maintenance is carried out. PVC-U offers modern day standards of weather and noise insulation too, so it’s easy to see why many are choosing this option to update heritage and period properties.”

Rodney Hodgkins, Chairman of the Bishampton and Throckmoreton Parish Council commented: “We’re thrilled 

to see The Dolphin returning to its former glory with the installation of these new windows. 

“Fred and the team at Northfield Glass did a great job and we’d have no hesitation in recommending them, and VEKA’s products to others. The fitters arrived on time, worked with unsurpassed levels of cleanliness and tidiness and, what’s more, Lee – the landlord – was still able to run the pub without their work intruding. No wonder so many villagers have taken the business cards they left!
“The fact that Northfield Glass is a VEKA Approved Installer also gave us the peace of mind that we’re dealing with a reputable company who meet all the legal requirements, such as supplying CE Marked products.”

Fred Atkinson, Northfield Glass quotes: " Thanks to VEKA, we had all the products at our disposal to fulfil this job – and others like it – to the complete satisfaction of our client. Customers trust the VEKA name and, now as an Approved Installer, we’re able to professionally promote our business, with our logo proudly displayed alongside theirs. We’re thrilled that the residents of Bishampton are so pleased with the results of this job, and wish The Dolphin a long and successful future".
 

Recent Case Studies

R9 just the job for Wiltshire home
Wiltshire-based SJ Window Installations has recently completed a domestic project using Residence 9 windows and French doors from leading fabricator, the Glazerite UK Group Ltd.  Specifying Clotted Cream on the exterior combined with a White Ash interior, the installation matched an existing R9 window fitted in a previous extension on the property, which is situated in the Wiltshire village of Little Somerford.  A total of nine windows and a pair of French doors were installed over five days by Simon Jordan, owner of SJ Window Installations, who was carrying out his first ever Residence Collection project. He says:  “This was the first time I’ve installed Residence 9 though I’ve used the Halo FlushSash in a number of properties of late. Both are great systems and alongside the R7 - which I also have access to via Glazerite - I have a number of flush sash solutions for customers, whatever their needs or budget.” Simon adds:  “The marketing done by Residence Collection in support of both R9 and R7 is impressive, and this particular customer found me via the installer search on their website, which is fantastic.  “By working with Glazerite, I also have access to their own technical and marketing support which has been invaluable for my business. I’m able to call on them at any time, whether that’s to double check measurements for a complex project or the design and build of my website.” Giovanni Sangiovanni of Glazerite’s Southwest division says: “SJ Window Installations is a great example of an installer who is taking advantage of the marketing available from the Residence Collection. Having a profile on their online installer search facility results in great leads. Simon is passionate about quality and R9 is a premium product that has helped him to deliver a stunning installation.”  This year SJ Window Installations is celebrating 21 years in business. The installer works across the Wiltshire towns of Marlborough, Trowbridge and beyond, fitting a range of uPVC windows, doors and conservatories sourced from Glazerite.
