The Residence Collection features in a new-build development in the conservation area of Woolley, near Wakefield.
The luxury development, named Old Beech Farm, features more than 200 Residence Collection windows across six new-build properties. Alongside fabricator HWL Windows and an independent housebuilder, the traditional R9 windows were added in the Painswick colourway, to compliment the stone exterior of the homes.
The original timber alternative window, Residence 9, is widely accepted in Conservation Areas and for Grade II Listed Buildings across the UK as the collection was designed according to the key principles, shapes and dimensions from the Article 4 Conservation Area guidelines for windows. This particular window system was chosen by the developer due to their low maintenance superior performance features and high-end finish which fit with the premium development, claims the company.
The selection of windows, which meet Part L requirements with a u-value of 1.2W/m2k, surpassing British Building Regulation requirements and already below the changes that come into effect in 2025, was based on their thermal efficiency, heritage, and attractiveness to end-users. The windows also achieve a certified A++ window energy rating and attains Passive House standards with u-values of 0.74W/m2k with 44mm triple glazing, says the company.
The Timberweld jointing technique was used in the fabrication of the Residence 9 windows. This jointing method creates a seamless butt-joint appearance on both the exterior and interior of the windows, offering an authentic timber look and enhanced strength.
The Residence Collection windows are available for delivery without glazing, making on-site handling more convenient. In the case of Old Beech Farm, the windows were initially supplied with pre-fitted Georgian bars. However, to offer installers the flexibility to source glass locally, HWL also provided Georgian bars in kit form.
Jo Trotman, marketing manager at The Residence Collection commented: “At The Residence Collection, we prioritise offering a selection of new windows that not only enhance the aesthetics of properties but also deliver long-lasting performance. This particular project opted for a colour that perfectly complemented the exterior of the building, while still capitalising on all the other performance qualities that the R9 boasts.
“Establishing quality partnerships is crucial in the delivery of our superior design, manufacturing, and installation services that we consistently provide to our customers. We are delighted to have successfully concluded yet another project with HWL Windows and look forward to many more in the future.”
