New Planning and Conservation Guide from The Residence Collection

A new and detailed Planning and Conservation Guide has been published by The Residence Collection for trade partners, installers, architects, planners and homeowners, covering all aspects of timber casement alternative window design and specification.

The new 12-page guide is available as a download from the consumer facing website at and on the dedicated trade website at, as well as hard copies available direct from their marketing department. It’s a perfect reference point and clearly distinguishes flush PVCu from the true timber casement alternative of The Residence Collection that architects and planners yearn for.

Conservation areas, listed buildings and Article 4 directions are clearly defined as are the dimensions of Residence 9, which perfectly replicate those of traditional 19th century windows. An oast house case study, one for the Grade II listed building of Scarborough College and third for a thatched property in a conservation area provide additional evidence for sensitive window replacement projects.

Product detailing of the dedicated Georgian bar, traditional hardware and deep nose Radlington cill are also covered in the brochure, along with a heritage colour palette.

Sarah Hitchings, sales and marketing director of The Residence Collection commented: ‘the new planning and conservation guide is a must for companies and those involved in the specification of windows in conservation areas, listed buildings and Article 4 directions. Residence 9 in particular is the ultimate and arguably only true timber casement alternative window as the case studies show.’
