Total Glass has completed a major window and door refurbishment for Riverside ECHG at a sheltered housing scheme for older people in a conservation area close to Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral.

The Liverpool-based aluminium and PVC-U window and door fabricator carried out a full survey, supply and installation service for its social housing client's complex at Cathedral Court in Gambier Terrace.

End-of-life timber windows were replaced with 179 fully-reversible aluminium windows manufactured in a RAL 8017 satin brown finish using the Sapa Dualframe 75 System.

Total Glass also installed the high-performance Sapa Dualframe Window Wall System in several corridors to enhance natural light and thermal efficiency in communal areas. External security was upgraded with new ground floor entrance doors from the Sapa Stormframe range.

Andrew Sheil, Commercial Projects Manager at Total Glass commented: "Maintaining the aesthetics in blending the old with the new met the planning conditions in this important conservation area and feedback from residents has been very positive."

Selwyn Thompson, Riverside's Project Manager explained: "Due to the Planning Restrictions in the area of Cathedral Court, Liverpool, it became apparent that commencing on site would take some time to agree the materials and specification with the planners.
"To ensure that we ticked all the boxes with the planners, we also felt that it was important to employ the right expertise for this project. With Total Glass being an approved Riverside contractor we thought their supplier and fit expertise would be ideal for this project."

He added: "Having agreed all the meticulous detailing with the planners, Total Glass commenced on site. The high installation quality and service delivery standards they employed throughout the duration of the project was welcomed by both the project team and end users, therefore ensuring the success of the project."
