World Duty Free contracted Hazlemere Commercial in Summer 2008 to replace the existing facade with a high performing glazing solution. A bespoke design and detailed drawings were prepared for this exterior refurbishment. Planning permission was sought and obtained by Hazlemere from Runnymede Borough Council.

The industrial and office premises were fully occupied throughout the refurbishment by Hazlemere Commercial requiring special attention to Health & Safety, so close client liaison was essential. World Duty Free’s business involves a 24 hour operation, so required safe continuous access to the Windsor Road site for their staff, trucks and container lorries. Consequently, Hazlemere Commercial erected a gantry scaffold to gain access to the 1st floor elevation, whilst facilitating vehicular access to the warehouses 24/7.

High performance solar control glass sealed double glazed units with a green body tint were fitted to the Sapa Dualframe 55 and 75 casement windows. Internal trims were fitted to all reveals and purpose made parapet pressings to seal the junction between the new curtain wall head and external roof detailing.
