Clement Windows Group was selected to manufacture and install almost 1,000 double glazed steel windows at the India Buildings in Liverpool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The India Buildings is located on Water Street in the centre of the city’s financial and business district.  Designed by architects Arnold Thornely and Herbert J Rowse in response to a competition to design an office block which was judged by the great English architect, Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, it was built between 1924 and 1932 for the Blue Funnel shipping line.  The building’s design is influenced by the Italian Renaissance style and it has several features of the American Beaux-Arts style.

Having sustained damage during World War II the building was restored to its original state after the war under the supervision of Rowse, one of the original architects.

In 2017, the Grade II* Listed Building was purchased by Legal & General and it was announced that HMRC would base a regional centre there.  Renovation works commenced with the focus on creating modern, comfortable office space while retaining the heritage features of the building.

Clement was chosen to manufacture and install the new double glazed steel windows which match the original single glazed metal windows and improve thermal performance and energy use within the historic building. Almost 1,000 windows from the Clement MW40 range were specified, polyester powder painted RAL 9106 (White).

Alex Harrison of architects Falconer Chester Hall said:

“We had the pleasure of working with Clement on the steel window replacements of the India Building refurbishment project.  Their performance in every aspect of the work was outstanding and we wholeheartedly endorse them for any future contracts of a similar nature.  One specific area where Clement excelled during the early stages, was the support we received from them during our discussions with the city planners regarding the bespoke windows.  Their contribution proved very useful in moving matters forward and the end result is exceptional.”
