The complete renovation of the Grade II listed Old School House and new extension in Elslack near Skipton, North Yorkshire.
The Old School House required sympathetic replacement aluminium glazing to the existing listed building and new extension.
The success of this installation hinged greatly on very accurate surveying and the brief was simple – "under no circumstances must frame work be ‘buried’ either internally or externally and gaps must be kept to a minimum to avoid excessive use of external frame silicone"
A total solution that would perfectly harmonise with the different external building materials and openings throughout the entire property.
One of the pre requisites of this project was to ensure that the stepped detail of the outer frames was completely visible and even within the external stone work and also within the internal plaster reveals and above the window boards.
Frame colour was also a very important consideration. The range of aluminium plate samples provided on the Marlin Windows website enabled the owner to make the perfect colour choice, dual colour profiles throughout.
By understanding final floor finishes from the outset Marlin were also able to influence the correct height of masonry with the builder to guarantee flush threshold details for the bi fold doors, a detail that is frequently overlooked in early construction stages.
