Specialist Spectus fabricator Mercury Glazing has manufactured and supplied 204 windows for the sympathetic landmark refurbishment of Cliff House, an iconic former hotel in Felixstowe, into 24 one and two-bedroom luxury seaside apartments.

Working with main contractor and developer Dragon Wood Homes, the twelve-month project involved Mercury undertaking the manufacture and supply of 204 bespoke windows, which included a mixture of arched top vertical sliders, bowed vertical sliders, circular windows and standard vertical sliders. The windows were manufactured from Spectus’ vertical sliding and Elite 70 window systems and were produced in white woodgrain foil finish on both sides.

Originally constructed in 1906 as a prestigious 100 room cliffside hotel, Cliff House sits in a conservation area. It meant the restoration needed to be as sympathetic as possible and maintain its original features, including its sash windows.

Paul Whyman of Dragon Wood Homes said: “The age of the building and differing window styles meant we needed to work with a fabrication partner who could deliver bespoke energy-efficient windows that also achieved the right balance from a conservation point of view. Mercury Glazing are an established specialist fabricator and their products, combined with the cutting-edge technology delivered by Spectus, more than met these exacting standards. The quality of the products is superb and we are delighted with the overall high quality result.”

Carmen Velilla, Brand Manager at Spectus, said: “The Spectus Vertical Slider is renowned in the industry for its ability to combine outstanding heritage aesthetics with modern day thermal efficiency and security. In Cliff House we can see this on a grand scale. We were delighted to work alongside Mercury and Dragon Wood Homes to give this beautiful building a new lease of life.”
