Westcoast Windows supply Swedish designed and manufactured composite windows and doors for new Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice building
Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice provides Hospice-at-Home and community-based services, by giving clinical, practical and emotional support to babies, children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families living in North and Central London and Hertsmere.
The new hospice building will allow them to offer a wider range of care to over 1,200 babies, children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions in the catchment areas, where there is currently no children’s hospice building.
The Ark is set on a 7.5 acre nature reserve and will be a home-from-home for children who are seriously unwell, where they will be given the time and space to be children and not just patients. It will provide an inspiring space for relaxation, adventure and for children and their families to connect with others facing similar challenges.
The Ark build began in early October 2017 and will take around 18 months to complete. The great and the good of the construction industry have come together to support the charity in helping to build including JLL UK, Pears Property, Sellar Property, Erith Demolition, 8build and Squire & Partners.
Westcoast Windows were pleased to be approached by contractor 8build to provide the composite windows and doors for the build and will be working with prestigious award winning architects, Squire & Partners on the project.
The building has been specified with the popular Westcoast Windows triple-glazed Design Series – ideal for contemporary architecture offering a deeper glass unit and minimal step between outer glass and frame for maximum light and simple, elegant lines. The specification will also include some consideration for solar control, fresh air intake louvres at the head of the window frames and three main entrance screens with automatic sliding doors.
We are pleased to announce that the windows and doors have now been delivered to site and fitted by our experienced partners Kingston Joinery.
