What’s involved in commercial window installation and replacement

Monday, May 15, 2017 Steve Sherbourne Comments (0)

Getting your windows replaced can enhance your property’s overall appearance. Something that’s especially important for commercial properties; replacing windows is a quick win to get your premises to match your brand. Getting new windows may also be an essential requirement – for energy or health and safety reasons. There are many reasons why you may be looking for commercial window replacement or installation and here are a few of the important considerations:

Do you need planning consent for commercial window installation and replacement?

No. Unless you have a listed building, you are not required to apply for any kind of planning consent. Do bear in mind if any construction work will need to be done in order to accommodate new windows. You can find out more information on the Planning Portal.

What regulations do your windows need to comply with?

All replacement windows and doors need to comply with certain regulations to reduce energy loss. If you’ve taken on an existing building you may need to replace the commercial windows to improve the building’s energy performance.

We will provide you with a certificate showing that your windows have been installed by Windrush Door & Window Services; a Certass accredited and Construction Line certified company.

Windrush have installed new pvcu patio doors in the residents homes on site. The window installers being friendly and polite and having a nice demeanour and getting on well with the residents. The work was carried out in a professional manor with their work being clean and tidy all with an insurance baked guarantee. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

I would just like to say that I was very impressed by the two young men who came to do the windows yesterday, they were very efficient, had impeccable manners and they cleared up after themselves which was a joy.

Windrush serviced two Velux windows and re-glazed with new sealed units, re-glazed a bedroom window with three sealed units, and re-glazed a conservatory upgrading sealed units to "Low E Argon" gas and thermal bar

During the School holidays the Windrush team carried out window adaption works for the School. Windrush installed remote window winding equipment to our high level windows that have been a health and safety issue with pupils and staff standing on chairs to open. I can recommend Windrush for their professional approach, competitive pricing and ability to accommodate our requirements during a busy time with many other trades on site. They were willing to change their work schedule to accommodate changing circumstances on site.

This June Windrush installed 39 Pvcu windows to our student accommodation block at Rewley Abbey Court. The work required them to install the windows while residents were in occupation, some with young children. Windrush carried out a full risk and method statement and appraisal to carry out the works in a safe manner with multi-occupation to consider. Full scaffolding and access booms were used with everything being alarmed and fenced off with appropriate signage in place. The Windrush team involved had all the necessary accreditation holding CSCS cards, asbestos awareness trained, CRB checked etc. The windows were as per our requested specification with Windrush being the most competitive out of the competition. The College are very pleased with all aspects of the work carried out and will be using Windrush on our future projects.
