Black Millwork fits the bill

After being impressed by the company’s product range at a construction trade show, Stonebridge Homes decided that Black Millwork’s range of window and door profiles were the perfect fit for an upcoming project they were working on.

As one of the leading names in residential development and commercial office space, the team at Stonebridge Homes has vast experience in producing skilfully designed, soundly constructed homes to suit the lifestyles of a wide range of customers.

In June 2017, its team was tasked with working on another amazing project, which it has now completed after overcoming a number of challenges.

The large detached home is situated in an expansive ground, which contains a substantial garden and an external pool-house. The main house is built from natural stone, which gives the property a real sense of character, but made fitting windows and doors challenging. One of the issues that Stonebridge Homes had to overcome on this project was the imprecise coursing across a number of the masonry units.

The irregular nature of the coursing meant that the developers needed a window and door supplier who could produce bespoke units that fitted directly into the natural stone.

Stonebridge Homes commented: “This property presented a relatively unique challenge. Much of the stone masonry used across the home was uneven and as a result it was difficult to marry the coursing on the stone with the imperial sizing of the windows.

"When it came to specifying window units we took great care in finding a supplier who could go above and beyond just offering us units that looked great and performed well. We needed a supplier with real expertise and technical know-how about the intricacies of working with natural stone. We found that with Black Millwork and they were on hand to help us every step of the way.”

The Stonebridge Homes’ team first discovered Black Millwork’s comprehensive product offering at a trade show. With the project in mind, the team was on the lookout for various building products to specify in the home. The developers were impressed with the company’s wide range of window and door products, which includes high performance wood, clad and aluminium windows and doors. After speaking with Black Millwork’s technical experts about the challenges associated with the project the developers sensed they would be the ideal choice.

A range of products including Andersen A-Series sash windows, Andersen A-Series panel patio doors and a range of composite entry doors were supplied by Black Millwork to the project.

The company also supplied a number of aluminium products to the property’s pool-house including a large aluminium screen, an aluminium roof lantern and an aluminium glazed gable above the door. Working closely with Stonebridge Homes’ team, Black Millwork was on hand each step of the way to provide technical advice and expertise on how to properly install the products into the home.

Speaking about the project, General Manager at Black Millwork, Gary Hutton, commented: “We’ve been on quite a journey with the Stonebridge Homes’ team since meeting them at a construction trade show last year, but it’s been an amazing experience. This was a special project to be involved with and the end results look great.

"Our work on this project underlines how we’re much more than just a window and door manufacturer. Working closely with the developers, we’ve been on hand to impart technical advice, installation tips and have also supplied a number of bespoke aluminium units in the home’s pool-house.”
