INITIAL SITE SURVEY
Challenges of the project
This was a challenging project with over 200 visually sensitive windows. Not only did the windows have to match the historic significance of the building, there was a large number of Gothic arches and multi-segment designs that had to work within the complex stonework. By working closely with the team at Asset Fineline we were able to build windows, manufactured from Rehau Heritage profiles, that were visually identical to the originals they replaced and less problematic to install”

COMPLETION & HANDOVER
“The refurbishment of school house has transformed the building into an environment which the college is very proud of and is loved by staff and students alike.
We are grateful to both Lengard and Asset Fineline for the role they played in returning the building to its former glory and the care, attention to detail and excellent workmanship has meant that we now have a facility which meets all the standards we set ourselves.
Whilst the new windows retain the visual character of the building they offer all the benefits of using modern materials including low maintenance, improved insulation, security and light transmission.
We are very pleased with the results”
Simon Wilson, Estates Manager
Bishop’s Stortford College
“Lengard were pleased to work with Asset Fineline on this prestigious project to ensure that the programme for the installation of the new frames met with the timescales required for the overall refurbishment of the building.
Close co-operation was necessary from both companies to ensure that frames were correctly installed into prepared openings which ensured the aesthetic requirements were achieved and that the installation was possible alongside the work being undertaken by other trades at the same time.
We were very pleased with the outcome which underlined that a successful and productive relationship was achieved on site by all.”
