Clement Windows Group has manufactured over 200 new steel windows for Grade II listed Waltham Forest Town Hall.
Designed by Philip Dalton Hepworth and constructed between 1938 and 1942, Waltham Forest Town Hall is one of the best known examples of the stripped classical style of architecture in the UK. Influenced by the Modernist Movement of the Bauhaus School and defined by bold massings, severe angles and a stylised reduction of classical elements, this look was frequently chosen by governments for municipal buildings.
Clement W20 steel windows were chosen to replace all of the original steel windows at this historic building, which is the headquarters of the London Borough of Waltham Forest Town Council, as part of an extensive programme of renovation works approved in 2019.
The refurbishment of the Town Hall is the first step in a masterplan for the future of the area creating a welcoming heart for the community as well as a collaborative workspace for Council staff.
The Town Hall’s Senior Project Manager commented on the project:
“The team at Clement provided a great service in supplying new windows as part of the Town Hall refurbishment. Very specific aesthetic and energy performance criteria needed to be met when it came to the window replacement. The W20 windows supplied by Clement were able to meet all of these requirements.
“Despite the project being on site at the height of the pandemic, the windows were delivered to programme which enabled seamless installation. Now the building has been brought back into use really positive feedback has been received from both staff and visitors.”
A traditional, tried and tested, robust window, designed in the 1950s but still in demand today, the Clement W20 steel window may be used in all types of building where strong, durable frames, efficient opening casements and hard wearing fittings are required.
Available as single or insulated glass units up to 16mm, W20 windows are available with various glazing options and can be supplied shaped, with shaped heads, or ‘curved on plan’. Part L compliant they can be supplied with multi point locking to PAS24 or with traditional single point locking.
Clement Windows Group manufactures an innovative range of steel windows, doors, screens and conservation rooflights, specialising in conservation work for both private residences and commercial projects.
