Woodbine Place, Gateshead

C834-woodbine-01C834-woodbine-03The refurbishment of a unique terrace, including listed buildings, in the heart of Gateshead

This project involved the refurbishment of a terrace of impressive town houses, including two listed buildings and illustrates how we can add value for our clients through the manufacture of high quality bespoke joinery in our own workshops.

The Objective

Woodbine Place is a unique oasis of impressive townhouses within the inner city of Gateshead. The street is reminiscent of some of the wealthier suburbs of London and contains two buildings listed for their architectural merit. The exterior appearance of the properties, as well as their thermal performance and attractiveness to tenants was badly let down by the condition of the timber, sliding sash windows on the front elevation.

C834-woodbine-02Our contract included the manufacture and fittng of new timber sash windows, double glazed and to current standards of insulation and draft proofing. We also replaced casement windows and French doors to the rear elevations.

Our Specialist Joinery Division designed and manufactured bespoke windows to replace the sash windows and because they were manufactured in timber, they were able to maintain the elegant proportions of the original designs.

By manufacturing the windows ourselves we were able to retain complete control of the project, guaranteeing quality, ensuring delivery times were met and maintaining the project on programme. In turn this benefitied our clients by smoothing liaison with the occupying tenants, ensuring work took place on the day scheduled and minimising disruption.

The Solution

The project was completed in 12 weeks, providing every property with new, draft proof and highly insulated timber windows, improving the thermal efficiency of the homes and restoring the appearance of the terrace’s façade.

The result was a successful project that delighted our client and was completed on time and within the original contract sum of £248,000.
