Castle Wharf, Nottingham

The Problem

We were approached by the client who had a need to source replacements parts for existing windows in the building they manage at Castle Wharf Nottingham to bring all windows back to full operation.

The project required us to deliver the project within a short-timescale as the contractor was working towards a short deadline to hand-over the building.

Castle Wharf is located in the centre of Nottingham and the building was being refurbished to provide Grade A offices over 4 floors. The existing windows needed attention and replacement parts – specifically new keys for the window locks.

Project Overview

An initial site visit identified that the windows included Siegenia gearing. As one of our supply partners this quickly enabled us to develop a schedule of rates for any repairs we found to be necessary to bring the windows back to full operation. The site had 52 Tilt & Turn windows and doors.

A two-stage project was agreed with the client, firstly to carry out a survey of all the windows and doors to assess their condition over a period of two days, and then once costs were agreed to carry out the required works based on the findings of the survey. The benefit of this approach was to provide budget and costing certainty to Workspace Design.

Additional follow up repairs included replacement of gaskets, the replacement of hardware and full Tilt & Turn window and door re-gearing. In addition, our engineers identified a failed push-bar mechanism in the main fire exit and repaired this.

Our engineers liaised with other trades to ensure that our activities didn’t negatively impact on them and worked with the site manager to ensure that safe working was carried out at all times due to the busy nature of this site. All windows were brought back to full operation within the target completion time and within budget.
