A clear choice for iconic London hospital

Rehau’s Heritage windows have recently met Whipps Cross Hospital’s criteria for replacement windows as part of a wider refurbishment of its wards that would not look out of place in the Grade II listed building, but still offered the benefits of new PVC-U windows.

The contractor, SEH Commercial, recommended the Heritage windows – which Rehau says ‘perfectly combine traditional sash window designs with the latest PVC-U technology’ – for the East London hospital. Built just before the turn of the 20th century as an infirmary, Whipps Cross Hospital in Leytonstone is among the UK’s most iconic hospitals, with its Renaissance-inspired main entrance, majestic towers, and tiered covered walkways. It is managed by Barts Health NHS Trust, which recently refurbished its Bracken, Birch, and Conifer wards, and the Ultrasound and Breast Screening Unit. As part of the project, the windows needed replacing in each ward. 

Rehau says the Heritage window was developed in consultation with conservation bodies and housing associations ‘to offer the market’s most authentic design and styling, while also delivering on energy efficiency and security, and offering reduced ongoing maintenance costs’.
