Ramsden Barrett Architects
S.G. Aluminium Ltd.
The refurbishment of formerly derelict Woodhouse Mill, a six-storey Grade II listed building, features Kawneer’s GT70 Windows, installed by S.G. Aluminium as replacements for the mill’s original steel windows.
Built in 1832, Woodhouse Mill was on the Listed Buildings at Risk register until a local business man had the vision to save the building and turn it into a stylish residential development. Constructed from stone, the mill has had a completely new structure erected inside its walls; previously it had lost its roof in a fire and seen the collapse of an end gable.
The refurbishment process involved extensive consultation with planners and bodies such as English Heritage and the Victorian Society, with the intention to retain as many of the mill’s original features as possible. Ramsden Barrett Architects retained most of the mill’s existing openings as windows or doors and selected the GT70 window because of its ability to retain the traditional elegance of the original steel windows.
