Casement windows, tilt & turn windows and vertical sliding windows
Built in the 1930s, 33 Colston Street was the location of Bristol’s YMCA hostel until the University of Bristol acquired the freehold to the building in 2009. The university then completed a major refurbishment programme, creating 121 study bedrooms for students together with communal areas. The refurbishment was completed in time for the student intake in 2011.
To match the lines and style of the original steel windows that had been a feature of the building’s design, heritage style windows were selected for the project.
The upper floor casement windows were installed in a white polyester powder coated finish, and incorporated acoustic night vents to help maintain air flow while keeping external noise out of the building.
The aluminium framing system and entrance doors for the ground floor (in a brown finish) were also installed, with the glazed panels featuring a unique selection of ‘etched’ drawings depicting various local scenes. The whole glazing scheme helped contribute to the achievement of a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’.
