“Halcyon Court is an impressive period building set in attractive grounds. Our renovation techniques meant the poor performance of the windows could be addressed without affecting the property’s appearance.”
There are happy days ahead for the residents of Halcyon Court in Headingley, near Leeds, after experts from Ventrolla North East and Yorkhire Ridings stepped in to fix their draughty windows.
The company renovated around 70 sash windows at the historic building, which has been adapted into a care home by Anchor Trust, the UK’s largest not-for-profit provider of support, care and housing for older people.
Originally two private residential properties built in the early 1900’s, Halcyon Court was completely refurbished four years ago when Anchor Trust first acquired the building, however, many of the bedroom windows were ill-fitting, causing them to rattle and lose heat.
Building Surveyor for Anchor Trust, Andrew Turnbull said: “It was proving difficult to keep the rooms at a constant temperature and energy bills for the site were excessively high. It was clear a lot of heat was being lost through the windows.
Replacing them would have been extremely costly and time consuming. However, Ventrolla assured us it was possible to carry out renovation work, which I’m pleased to say has proved most effective.”
A spokesperson for Ventrolla North East and Yorkshire Ridings, said:“Halcyon Court is an impressive period building set in attractive grounds. Our renovation techniques meant the poor performance of the windows could be addressed without affecting the property’s appearance.”
Ventrolla provides a bespoke renovation service for timber sliding sash and casement windows, while its unique Perimeter Sealing System significantly improves the window’s performance and energy efficiency.
With its national headquarters in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, Ventrolla operates via a network of regional offices.
