Clement W20 steel windows were chosen to best match the existing windows – almost exact replicas but with the advantage of double glazing and an incredibly long lasting polyester powder coating.

Javelin Block is a building re-animator (not developer) that has been responsible for the re-birth of many of the heritage buildings located in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham.

Their philosophy is to preserve and enhance the patina in historic buildings, built up over a lifetime. The result is a genuine industrial feel to their developments, often in buildings others deem as being beyond repair.

Clement Windows were specified to manufacture and install the new steel windows required for their recent conversion project Comet Works in Birmingham’s Gun Quarter. 20 residential units including authentic lofts, apartments and mews houses have been beautifully created within this historic building dating back to the 1830s.

Sensitivity was key when choosing a replacement for the original metal windows. Clement W20 steel windows were chosen to best match the existing windows – almost exact replicas but with the advantage of double glazing and an incredibly long lasting polyester powder coating.

Nigel Birch, owner of the contractors on this project, Springworth(Building & Interiors) Ltd, commented: “The Comet Works is a striking set of buildings that stand as a testament to Birmingham’s industrial past. Clement’s steel windows were the perfect product for the reinvention of these buildings, providing a strong heritage look as well as sound 21st century innovation and performance.”
