Slim profiles and good lead times win Chiswick Gate development with Berkeley Homes West London for Rationel windows

Rationel supplied the timber windows, entrance doors and window doors for this prestigious new housing development by Berkeley Homes in West London at Chiswick Gate.

The top swing windows are from the AuraPlus range with its additional aluminium cladding to protect the timber frames and extend their life in use. 

John Lewis, regional sales manager for Rationel says:

“AuraPlus leaves all the beauty of a natural timber finish on the interior showing off the environmentally friendly raw material largely sourced from FSC forests.  The triple glazing in this window range can give U values with best performance 0.79W/m2K.”     

The Chiswick Gate Development is close to the River Thames, the parks and gardens of Chiswick House, also famous for its concerts and musical events, and the M4 and Chiswick High Street with its first class amenities.  Apartments are being marketing from £800,000 to £2.2m each.  It is a brown field site which was previously commercial office buildings demolished to make place for rows of top quality apartments rising to four storeys, along-side town housing designed to reflect the original Victorian surroundings.

Berkeley specified Rationel because of the lead time the company could deliver from factory to site, and the aesthetics of the timber window product design with their slim profiles and good sound attenuation.

Alan Daly, from Berkeley Group said:

“Rationel could supply us with an aesthetically pleasing window with slim frames, good acoustic reduction and were quite competitive on price.  We have worked with the firm in the past and know the product is built to last and suits this development.”

The architects for this development were Liverpool based Falconer Chester Hall. The contractors are Berkeley Homes (West London) Ltd, and the contract value was over £500,000.
