95 Gresham Street is a gem in the heart of the City of London. The £35 million refurbishment of the site makes extensive and impressive use of glass and steel to contrast with the existing external facade of Portland Stone. And for the glazing element, Crittall Windows supplied and installed our Corporate 2000 and Corporate W20 profiles for optimum visual impact and long lasting performance.

The original structure has been redesigned to offer eight floors and 95,000 sq ft of office space, with a brand new atria created as a main focal point at the entrance. The installation of the new windows was a like-for-like replacement, with the Crittall profiles helping to retain the character and traditional appearance of the external facade, whilst at the same time providing modern, advanced glazed units that comply with all thermal and energy efficient requirements.

Our involvement extended beyond just supplying the profiles: 95 Gresham Street actually comprise both Princes House and Bartlett House. One of the tasks that we were faced with was to refurbish the cast iron framing and panels to some of the fenestration in Bartlett House prior to installing the new profiles. This was done successfully, with the rest of the replacement window project completed on time and to the standards required for this conservation area. Crittall’s ability to offer this complementary service greatly contributed to the smooth progression of the scheme.

The modernisation of 95 Gresham Street has now been completed and the result is a transformation of the site into modern, contemporary office space located behind a retained facade that continues to blend into the urban surroundings. Crittall’s range of windows has made this possible due to the trademark narrow slimline profiles which allow more glass to be used in an aesthetic capacity, without compromising the inherent strength and performance of the windows. Moreover, the unobtrusive appearance of the profiles allows the architectural value of the original structure to be clearly visible by all those who pass by in the City.
