Green Building Store's Ecocontract windows & doors specified for radical church refurbishment and nearby social housing newbuild
Molyneux Architects have recently completed a refurbishment of the Trinity Church in Mill Hill, North London along with 20 residential units for Christian Action Housing Association. The project involved extensive internal stripping, demolition, and remodelling of the 1930s church including the construction of a mezzanine floor through the centre of the building.
Ecocontract windows and doors from Green Building Store were used extensively in the newbuild project and also were specified for a number of elements of the church refurbishment. Ecocontract double glazed outward and inward opening windows were selected in a wide range of shapes – including ecclesiastical arches etc. A variety of Ecocontract single and double doors were also specified in the social housing project.
Roger Molyneux of Molyneux Architects: “I was aware of Green Building Store through the AECB and so knew that we shared a strong commitment to the green agenda. When specifying for the Trinity Church project, I was looking for windows & doors that ticked a number of boxes. With its Secured by Design accreditation and use of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) timber, Ecocontract did this. I considered the profiles and general design language to be appropriate for the project’
The windows & doors were installed in 2011 and the project was completed in January 2012. According to Roger Molyneux: “We have been very happy with Ecocontract windows & doors and are impressed with the quality of the range. The window furniture is also really good. I would definitely specify Green Building Store windows in the future and have already been in contact on a few projects since.”
Completed: January 2012
