A-Hoy matey – is that secondary glazing we see?


until it closed in 1984. Ownership was then transferred to the Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust to re purpose the site, opening it up as a visitor attraction, as well as including places where people can live and learn. The core of the 80 acre site, houses over 100 buildings and structures dating from the Georgian and Victorian periods, to present day new builds. The Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust,


T


SEEDA and the Local Council decided to develop the old Joiners Shop into a hub for creative businesses to be based. Many of the building’s remarkable original features were preserved and incorporated into the new design. As part of the refurbishment, Kingswood Construction contacted Selectaglaze to provide a solution to augment the thermal insulation of the existing single glazed timber windows in the reception,


office spaces and communal facilities; some of which had to be 30 minute fire rated. A total of 85 units were installed. In spring 2018, Selectaglaze worked on the


offices of the Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust, which is situated on the first floor of the Fitted Rigging House. 25 units were installed, again the Series 20 specified for the majority of openings. The large loop hole


he Historic Dockyard at Chatham in Kent, was one of the Royal Navy’s main facilities for four hundred years


doors in the office that cannot be removed due to the buildings Listed status also required secondary glazing; so three Series 41 double side hung no threshold casement units were installed on door frames to improve thermal retention. Overall, facilities manager Nigel Howard


who has seen much of the redevelopment of the Historic Dockyard Chatham has been thoroughly impressed with the consistent quality of Selectaglaze systems throughout the years. Historic Dockyard Chatham won the ‘Best major regeneration of a Historic Building’ award at the Historic England Angel Awards in November 2018. Established in 1966 and Royal Warrant


Holder since 2004, Selectaglaze has a wealth of experience working on many building types, from new build to Grade I Listed buildings.

A unique design of ventilation grille from Gilberts Blackpool has helped Twitter achieve its first platinum level LEED (leadership in energy & environmental design) award in the world. The social media brand’s European, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) headquarters in Cumberland Place, Dublin, is Twitter’s biggest office outside the US. The six storey, 1970s building has been refurbished in partnership with its owners Hibernia REIT to be as eco-friendly as possible. Key elements of the eco refurbishment, designed by MCA architects, have been green roofs, optimised use of glazing, and an energy efficient heat recovery ventilation system. The ventilation throughout uses Gilberts’ circular GSFE swirl diffusers with a supplementary coanda plate integrated into exposed building services, supplied by Keane Environmental. Gilberts’ circular GSF fixed swirl diffuser – a patented design – uses radial vanes behind a perforated face to allow the introduction of high levels of air horizontally across the ceiling with rapid entrainment and intermixing delivering an omni directional discharge with high room induction.

Aerospace company Blue Origin’s vast new 70,000 square metre factory in Kennedy Space Centre's Exploration Park in Florida is now manufacturing ‘Glenn’ rockets for launches at Cape Canaveral 10 miles away. Owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, the Blue Origin building features specially-designed Kalwall®


translucent cladding which has


been used across the top of the building in a clerestory design. Manufactured with a bespoke face sheet to match the corporate colour scheme, 100’s square metres of Kalwall transmits high quality diffused daylight into the structure whilst also solving the twin requirements of privacy and security. Interestingly, the use of a bespoke coloured face sheet does not affect the quality of light internally. Kalwall offers complete line-of-sight protection, maintaining privacy for building occupants and operations while throwing diffused daylighting deep into the interior space. It also eliminates shadows and glare and the stark contrasts of light and shade making it safer for within. The system also enhances simplicity in external design by negating the need for blinds, curtains or solar control.
