Timber Sliding Windows for Cheshire Apartments

Case Study

Timber sliding windows were finally fitted in December 2018 with the completion of two high spec building renovation projects in the exclusive area of Bowdon, Cheshire, just south of Manchester, for which Parry Joinery were an integral part. The two buildings, known as Southbank House and Delamer Lodge have been sympathetically and stylishly restored to create 17 luxury apartments providing attractive and contemporary living spaces at Cavendish Place in Bowdon. The development of these 17 stunning homes includes duplexes, triplexes, a coach house and 3 and 4 bedroom penthouses with commanding views of the surrounding Cheshire countryside.

As part of this large scale project Parry Joinery were involved in the manufacturer of all external bespoke heritage joinery including timber windows and doors – this included timber sash windows, casement and pivot windows, manufactured using 5th Redwood softwood that received vac vac treatment and finished with Sapele hardwood cills & glazing beads.

The timber framed windows were manufactured using Sapele which were manufactured to the required shape and sizes from rectangular, to triangular and circular frames. These can be seen in the photographs in our ‘products’ pages.

French doors and frames were manufactured together with Pivot doors/frames using Sapele hardwood & Accoya modified timber. Accoya is a sustainably produced timber offering outstanding durability which matches that of more traditional choice timbers and is a product we promote for a range of joinery requirements. This can be seen further in the photographs of the sliding doors and frames.

Where required, the doors and frames supplied were finished with a paint finish using our standard external micro porous one colour paint system. However on the request of our client the Accoya window and door frames were supplied unfinished so as to allow decoration to match the cladding on site.

The grand entrance timber doors for both the Southbank building and the Delamere building were also manufactured and supplied by Parry Joinery using Sapele hardwood and treated for all the necessary components. More specifically at Delamer House the etched glass panel frames were rebated to suit a 57mm thick pair of doors which were fitted with our standard draught seals, with a fanlight to frame. The entrance timber doors & frames were also supplied fully paint finished with our standard external micro porous two colour paint system.

Finally Parry Joinery were also responsible for the underground car park doors and frames which were also manufactured using Sapele hardwood.

Images of all work completed can be seen in our ‘products’ tab under the specific sub-sections.
