The conversion of the B-listed Bell Street Stables, a former Victorian stable block used to house horses working to pull Glasgow City Cleansing Department’s refuse collection carts, was performed by CCG on behalf of Wheatley Group and completed in summer-2019 after a near 2-year construction programme.
Now home to 52 one and two-bedroom flats, the project, situated in the Merchant City area of the city, utilised the integrated expertise of the CCG Group with full construction capability complemented by the use of timber products including internal, flat entrance and common door sets as well as dual turn windows, all designed and manufactured by CCG Manufacturing.
The Bell Street development was required to have a high degree of preservation retained throughout the building. In doing so, such items as the former stables doors and cobbles, amongst other items, were reconstituted throughout in order to mix both historical and contemporary touches.
In response to such measures, a bespoke version of the timber Dual Turn Window, traditional sash and case, was specified and designed to match the previous style in form and function.
The FD60 flat entrance door is used throughout various projects, however, this hardwood door was specified to have a bespoke aesthetic with the use of beading. Uncomprisingthe performance of the door, this added touch offers a contemporary nod to the Victorian doors of the age.
Offering a fire rating in excess of 60 minutes, the flame break door offers enhanced performance in fire safety thanks to intumescents around the door and the use of fire-proof foam as well as offering security for residents due to the use of a 3-point locking system and mechanical closing system.
All timber window and door products are pre-finished prior to being installed on-site ensuring site-based efficiencies in the form of installation time savings and quality management.
