Westcoast Windows supplies Swedish composite windows to The Naze Visitor Centre, part of Essex Wildlife Trust
Westcoast Windows design and manufacture Swedish aluminium timber genuine composite system windows and doors in their factory on the west coast of Sweden.
They were pleased to supply their energy efficient windows last year for the development of the new Essex Wildlife Trust visitor centre at Walton-on-the-Naze.
The Naze Centre is a major £1.2million project, with £1.15million of funding from the Coastal Communities Fund, providing information and facilities for visitors to the Naze, and a hub from where Essex Wildlife Trust is running events and educational facilities for school and college groups. The Naze is included in the curriculum for GCSEs and A-Levels, as a case study for wildlife, fossils, geology, coastal processes, coastal communities and more.
The Naze Centre is a low energy, eco-friendly building using heat pumps and recycled materials, and required high performance windows to help achieve this – Westcoast Swedish composite windows were the ideal choice.
The low maintenance aluminium exterior was finished in charcoal grey RAL 7012, combined with the warm wood lacquered timber interior finish, which was specified to match the internal glulam timber frame. The large energy efficient composite windows used in this project maximise the light, and minimise heat loss to create a bright, modern and welcoming visitor centre.
Westcoast Windows were pleased to supply their contemporary energy efficient Swedish composite windows for this project. For further information on our full range of composite windows and doors visit: www.westcoastwindows.com
