Gunnersbury Park Case Study
From wide-open fields to woodlands, glittering ponds to elegant buildings and formal gardens, Gunnersbury Park’s 186 acres is a sight to behold. Gunnersbury Park’s historic buildings and beautiful grounds have been brought back to life, thanks to a multi-million pound restoration programme that involved restoring heritage features and key buildings. As part of the project the stunning orangery underwent a painstaking replacement of its breath-taking rooflight and roof glazing.
Replacing rooflights in heritage or listed buildings requires experience and attention to detail. The lead architects for the project were looking to work with a company who could advise and work with them on the best solution. A challenging project from every angle, the planning and design of the solution was far more in-depth than simply considering appropriate products. Being a historic landmark, the rooflight replacement needed to match the existing very closely. As the architects did not want to involve multiple contractors, being able to project manage and design a suitable solution was essential for success. The existing structure was in bad repair and very careful consideration of all elements was required.
