THE NEW ARBORETUM HQ AT ROYAL BOTANIC GARDENS KEW WAS INSTALLED WITH WESTCOAST SWEDISH COMPOSITE WINDOWS
Westcoast supplied high performance Swedish composite windows for the development of the new Arboretum Headquarters at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew.
Based in Richmond, London, the project consisted of the demolition of the old property and rebuild of the new two storey, 4,000 sqft headquarters building.
The building was constructed with Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), noted as a renewable, green and sustainable material.
Working with contractors City Axis, Westcoast Windows supplied 70 m2 of windows in the triple-glazed Design Series.
Westcoast composite glazing was the ideal choice for the environmental and energy efficiency benefits that align with RBG Kew’s sustainability strategy for this building and future projects.
The low maintenance aluminium exterior of the composite windows was finished in the stylish basalt grey RAL 7012, with the warm wood interior simply coated in clear lacquer to complement the natural timber internal environment.
The new Arboretum Headquarters is just one of the projects at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew to help them achieve the goals of their sustainability strategy to become climate positive by 2030. Read more about their plans here: https://www.kew.org/about-us/press-media/kew-sustainability-strategy.
Westcoast composite windows are suitable for all commercial constructions, and are the ideal solution to help to achieve the necessary environmental and sustainable requirements.
