Our role was to restore the rooflights on the original buildings and convert them to various uses. The work was completed using the Lonsdale ThermGard glazing system fitted with sealed double glazed units.

The original roof was stripped back to bare timber and reglazed with the Lonsdale ThermGard glazing system fitted with sealed double glazed units incorporating Grey Antisun glass.
