Taylor Boarding House, Kings School – Window Replacement

Taylor Boarding House, Kings School - Window Replacement

Project Description

Stone + Partners gained Listed Building Consent for the renovation and replacement of the windows at Taylor Boarding House, Kings College, Taunton. 

Following a detailed window assessment and report, it was established that many of the original steel windows no longer seal closed. Structural damp was being caused by the cold bridging these malfunctioning window elements were allowing.

Secondary glazing had been fitted to one of the dormitories to assess it as a possible solution, but this had resulted in an acceleration of the corrosion of the steel window frames. 

The Facilities Management Department of the school has been forming an excellent record of conservation wherever possible, and ongoing improvements to the existing facilities.

On this occasion the welfare of the occupants of the dormitory prompted a desire to improve the fabric of the building to solve damp and leaking issues, and to improve the energy rating of the property.

Close liaison with Crittall Windows to formulate double glazed windows units to match the existing original steel windows was critical to getting this window replacement scheme agreed with the local authority conservation officer prior to the listed building application.

Project Description

Two-storey extension to the rear of a semi-detached property in Taunton, providing much needed additional living accommodation for the family including open plan kitchen/dining area, utility room, playroom storage at ground floor, and new master bedroom with en-suite and enlarged family bedroom to the first floor.

The timber frame was selected in favour of traditional construction following appointment of the contractor who had their own timber workshop, and savings were identified in terms of labour and speed on erection on site, as well as reduction in wet trades during the winter period.

Worked in close collaboration with Karesa Timber Frame to achieve high levels of insulation and airtightness with the timber frame construction.

Competed project at Trull

We are pleased to share recent photos of completed contemporary metal clad 2-storey extension to an existing Grade II Listed barn conversion, providing additional living accommodation and alfresco dining experience on the first floor terrace (perfect for those summer BBQ’s!).
The original barn dating back to the late 18th century was used for cattle on the ground floor and storage upstairs, and was converted in circa 2004.
The extension design is sympathetic to its context and suitably subservient to the existing buildings.
The palette of external materials of corrugated metal panels for the walls and roof, together with natural wood door and windows, were chosen in collaboration with the council’s Heritage Officer to reflect the agricultural nature of the existing buildings.
The selected materials both complement and contrast with those of the main barn, in an appropriate and modest manner.
