Gillingham Library Window Installation
Waller Glazing Services were successful in winning the Gillingham Library window installation project. This was as a result of a Medway Council open tender process.
Original Single Glazed Windows
The original windows were single glass, Crittal windows. Medway council wanted to improve the library’s energy efficiency and improve the building’s carbon footprint. Double glazed windows retain far more heat. As a result radiators are used less which means lower heating costs.
We removed the original windows and replaced them with new uPVC framed alternatives containing double glazed, safety glass. It was important that the building retained it’s original style. To achieve this, the glass included external astragal bars. This was in keeping with the original character and the period of when the library was first erected. Additionally, part of the project included the services of a stone mason. They were needed to repair areas of the window’s stone surround which had been damaged over the years due to wear and tear.
Internally, the installation of Teleflex window winders meant that the higher windows now open effortlessly.
Working Within a Busy Area
With the library being on a very busy high street, there was a potential problem for pedestrians walking along the pavement whilst the project was in progress. Therefore, we worked alongside a scaffolding company that we have a good relationship with. We ensured that the scaffolding was safe, secured and allowed access for pedestrians to pass by safely.
Commercial Waller Building and Glazing Services
Commercial building and glazing is a growth area for Waller Services. We work in the education and local authority sectors as well as the retail sector. This is due to many developments in the south east. We install toilet and kitchen facilities as well as commercial window and door installations.
