Residential People has learned that a leading manufacturer of aluminium windows and doors, Performance Window Fabrications (PWF), have completed work on two heritage projects in the West Midlands.
PWF designed, supplied and installed aluminium doors at the conversion of a four-storey 1930s Art Deco former cinema into 38 premium apartments in Lichfield city centre, Staffordshire.
The Birmingham-based firm also supplied and fitted a wide range of windows and doors at another Somerton Jones development – The Old Chapel in Fazeley, Tamworth. This time, the company delivered windows of a unique design, in keeping with the original arched steel windows.
The Old Picture House scheme is part of a £5 million regeneration of the former Regal Cinema in Tamworth Street. Meanwhile, The Old Chapel in Fazeley is a distinctive red-bricked apartment complex that overlooks the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal, at the heart of the UK canal network.
Commenting on the projects, Alex Sutherland, Managing Director of PWF, said: “We’ve really enjoyed working alongside Somerton Jones, helping to transform these two historic buildings and create high-quality new homes.
“Our design team and fabricators were challenged to create windows and doors that complemented the heritage of the unique properties. We delivered products that have really enhanced the developments and we are delighted with the results.”
