1,100 frames installed

Deceuninck’s 2500 tilt and turn window has been installed in student accommodation in London.

Working with the Berkeley Group, Deceuninck fabricator, Dempsey Dyer, installed 1,100 frames in the Woodward Buildings complex for Imperial College London. The development houses 590 students in a series of high rise buildings, including a 19-storey tower with a bull-nose aluminium facade.

It was reported to be a demanding project and the client had ‘complex requirements’ for aesthetics, weather performance, acoustics, safety and durability.

Dempsey Dyer says that it met all the criteria with Deceuninck’s high performance 2500 tilt and turn window, meeting the original specification for aluminium with the same performance and aesthetics, while saving 30% on the overall cost of windows.
