University of Manchester Students’ Union, Phase 1

Main Contractor: DotCom Glazing Ltd. (Direct)

Contract Value: £289K

Date: 2016


The replacement of all the windows and some doors was the 1st phase of a refurbishment and new-build programme for the Student Union block at the University.

The system put forward was the Heritage window system, as it was the nearest suitable and fit for purpose aluminium system to the existing old steel windows.

The slim lines, the polyamide thermal break in the extrusion and the ability to be glazed with sealed units, enabled the system to meet the required thermal ratings proving a winning formula.

For this phase of work Dotcom Glazing Ltd, acted as main contractor, and our performance proved so successful that we were invited to undertake Phase 2 as glazing sub-contractor to the Main Contractor.
