Heritage Sash Windows
Dating from the late 18th century, Frederick’s Place in EC2 London had led an opulent past. With a late prime minister and several prominent business founders as its previous residents, this address is also able to boast St Paul’s Cathedral as a neighbour. This distinguished building can still be easily found nestled between museums, restaurants and art galleries in the old streets of the financial district, in the borough of the City of London.
The original design of the building was by Robert Adam, a prominent English architect and the building was named after the late Sir John Frederick, a 17th century Lord Mayor of London.
Today however, this opulent building is now registered as Grade II listed, and is to be exquisitely transformed by John Robertson Architects into luxury office space on behalf of The Mercers’ Company.
TRC Windows Appointed to Replace Sash Windows
We are proud to have collaborated with John Robertson Architects on such a prestigious project. With a refreshing transformation in mind TRC Windows have been appointed to sympathetically design, supply and install replacement heritage sash windows throughout.
The scope of the overall project was to improve thermal, weather and acoustic insulation via the replacement windows and to ensure the aesthetic nature of the frames would provide both cohesion, and a complimentary visual ally to the stately legacy, left by the façade of the building.
The successful delivery of this project was delivered over two phases, spanning an 18-month period. Completion included the installation of bespoke heritage sash windows accommodating clear double-glazed safety glass in slim profile, low iron and hermetically sealed units. The windows also included solid sash bars to create immaculate sight lines and an air of distinction throughout.
In order to meet the high levels of styling and aesthetics that were essential to the success of this project, premium range traditional glazing methods with putty fronting, were used during the installation process.
