Now this is an interesting story and we’re thrilled about it. We’ve just received sign off on our first order for timber windows and doors for a new-build one-for-one replacement project in Hampstead Garden Suburb (HGS). This is a conservation area affectionately called the ‘Suburb’ by locals. What makes it so special is that the Suburb – the area north of Hampstead, west of Highgate and east of Golders Green in the London Borough of Barnet – is a fine example of early 20th Century domestic architecture owned by the HGS Trust and permission is needed from them for just about anything freeholders want to do to their properties and gardens. If it can change the appearance and atmosphere of the area then the alterations must be rubber-stamped by the Trust.

“As a specialist and responsible manufacturer our products are frequently specified for listed properties and stylish, traditional new-builds,” says Chris Wood., “and our products provide high standards of security, thermal and acoustic performance. But there is a great divide between the thermal performance requirements of products used in new- build and for those in listed properties. Great swathes of buildings in London, where we do a lot of business, are either listed or lie within a conservation area and planners and conservation officers, under the guidance of English Heritage, are allowed to completely ignore building legislation and the government’s requirement for the improvement of our housing stock and their goal to achieve carbon neutral status by the middle of this decade.

"My local Planner/Conservation officer has turned down our timber window replacement application on the basis of the manufacturer using Swedish joints. What’s the problem with these?"
Posted: 17 September 2013
I would argue it is possible to produce double glazed period timber sash windows that would be appropriate in many historic buildings. It is possible for example to use high quality, antique style glass, which is designed to recreate the wavy reflection of traditional handblown crown and cylinder glass. Float glass is seen as perfectly flat, uniform with an unblemished appearance, which, to purist conservationists, does little to contribute to the visual character of a period building. This antique glass in combination with carefully designed timber windows, without modern joints produces elegant period sight lines in keeping with historic buildings. Also an internally glazed window negates the need for glazing beads externally, thus reproducing traditional putty sightlines.
