An ancient charity in the old salt works village of Greatham, the Hospital of God was founded in 1273 and still dedicated to caring for those in need in the North East of England consisting residential care homes and almshouses. As local partners working closely with their Greatham Estate Office, ERW is involved on an ongoing basis with a number of projects. Most recently:
Greatham Hall & Town Farm
Our brief for this old farm house property was to replace the front and side elevations with new, high performance factory finished double glazed windows. The vertical sliding sash spiral balanced windows were carefully designed and manufactured in our own workshops to match the existing colour of styles, meaning we had to use a ribbon blue paint finish to remain in keeping.
Greatham High Street
In parallel, we also worked the regeneration of rented accommodation in conservation area of Greatham High Street. This was phase 3 of the renovation works to the High Street with the first phase completed in June 2008 and second in August 2009. Our brief in this £100,000 contract was to replace a total of 23 single glazed windows and 6 entrance doors consisting 11 bespoke vertical sliding sashes, 8 high performance, energy efficient advanced casements and 4 spiral balanced vertical sliders. As a conservation area, the key challenge was to overcome the restrictions to the front elevations of the properties.
Greatham Egerton Terrace
A further 5 properties have also benefited from a recent door and window replacement programme in Greatham, with a total of 50 windows – consisting 35 timber vertical sliding sashes and 15 advanced, energy efficient casements and 10 new factory finished front and rear doors.
