A lot of progress has been made on Ash House since our latest update, with the external finishes being installed. Our recent site visit was particularly exciting as it was the day window installation began. The windows installation took place in stages, as machines and people had to work in perfect symphony.

When installed the sliding doors and windows will glide effortlessly despite being quite heavy. A combination of vacuum lifter and a crane had to be used to install the larger windows on the first floor.

The installation process requires high precision and patience, to ensure that all the elements of the sliding door mechanism align perfectly.

The vacuum lifter together with a forklift ensure that the doors are secured during the installation and all manual checks can be carried out without the risk of them falling.

Precious and caution is not only required during the installation, but also transporting of the doors, especially when they are lifted over the building with the crane.

As you can see this was an all hands on deck kind of day at Ash House, and we are happy to report it was a success. The next stage will be to install the double height glass link that will be the key feature of the entry hall. Subscribe to our newsletter to make sure you don’t miss any of our exciting updates!
