Ian Ginn, the owner and designer is an advocate for the AWS brand and specified the AWS Thermal Heart range with an anodised finish to the exterior and powdercoat to the interior.
Ian wanted to build a highly energy efficient showroom and factory is designed specifically for the fabrication of Aluminum window and doors.
The showroom is faces the west to optimise the use the suns natural resources and the factory is located behind to keep the workplace cool.
The modern, architecturally designed building provides a comfortable and energy efficient workplace for those in the window industry. The visual aspect is a key feature in the design, the front has neutral colour scheme which allows the facade to be dominated by the angles, lines and textures from the windows, louvers and iron giving a contemporary, modern feel.
The Thermal Heart Series in double glazed with Low E was used helping reduce the transmission of heat during the summer months and winter heat loss thus reducing the use of heaters and air conditioning. These windows were strategically designed to complement the facade lines, maximize natural lighting and allow for cross ventilation.
