Another building on ye olde Knightriders Street, gets the Selectaglaze treatment

Whitbread’s Premier Inn acquired a section of the City & Guilds Group’s Grade II Listed Head Office in Smithfields, London; currently constructing a new hotel next door. With plant machinery adjacent to the offices, the noise pollution was becoming increasingly disruptive.
The company approached Selectaglaze for a cost effective window upgrade to all floors of their Head Office which overlooked the building site. This was to ensure a more amenable working environment, thus achieving a high level of noise attenuation.
51 units were installed, a variety of products were combined for the specification, including; Series 42 fixed lights, Series 45 and 41 casements, Series 10 and 15 horizontal sliding units, all designed to suit the existing primary glazing. All units were a matt grey finish which complemented the existing windows and the frames were glazed with 6.8mm laminate ‘A’ rated safety glass.
Employees at the City & Guilds Group are impressed with the level of sound attenuation received and it has improved the working environment across all the office floors.
“We were very happy with the installation and quality of the products supplied by Selectaglaze. There was little supervision required from our part, the workmanship was excellent and they left the site in an immaculate condition”.
Selectaglaze is the leading specialist in the design, manufacture and installation of secondary glazing; established in 1966 and a Royal Warrant holder from 2004. Selectaglaze will be exhibiting at EcoBuild 2018 in Excel, London at Stand C84 on the 6-8th March 2018.
