Clement steel windows provide modern thermal performance for 1930's residential building in Vauxhall conservation area

Clement Windows’ bespoke EB16 steel window range has been chosen to replace the original single glazed fenestration at Harleyford Court, a residential building within Lambeth’s Vauxhall Conservation Area.

Like many of its neighbouring towns, Vauxhall is undergoing a major transformation by Lambeth Borough Council. Their vision is to recreate Vauxhall as “the living town centre it once was”. The Vauxhall regeneration and development project includes restoring existing historical buildings as well as providing modern new buildings and facilities.

Clement’s EB16 window range benefits from slim 16mm glass units, is krypton filled and Part L compliant, offering improved thermal efficiency over that of the original windows.

The window restoration was a huge success. Doug Black from the London Borough of Lambeth’s Conservation and Urban Design Department said: ‘It was essential that the building, which is in a Conservation Area, retained its original 1930s character after the refurbishment. We were very impressed with the close match Clement were able to provide to the historic steel windows and their ability to provide modern thermal performance.’
