Full solution fabricator Central Window Systems has partnered with commercial and domestic installer company Sutton Designs to help transform a Grade II listed building in Solihull into a full-service care home facility.
Planning permission to turn Tudor Grange House into a care home was granted in 2018, but fresh proposals have since been tabled for a more expansive care home made up of 44 residential units and 30 assisted living units.
Working closely with Sutton Designs, Central have manufactured over 200 windows for the project.
Owner of Sutton Designs, Jon Gregory, comments: “We’ve worked with Central Window Systems on several commercial projects. They understand the importance of meeting tight lead times, which helps ensure that the installation runs as smoothly as possible. In addition, their vast product range means we have a one-stop-shop for our installations.
“Tudor Grange is a very impressive development, and we were delighted to partner with Central and be a part of its construction.”
Tudor Grange House was built in 1887 for Alfred Lovekin, a Birmingham silversmith, and was bought by Sir Alfred Bird – of Birds Custard fame – at the start of the 20th century.
It is understood to have operated as a Red Cross auxiliary hospital during and after the Second World War, before being acquired by Warwickshire County Council.
It was used as a school for children with special needs until the mid-1970s, at which point it became part of Solihull Technical College.
Central Window Systems Director of Sales Martyn Elwell comments: “We were delighted to work with Sutton Designs in the redevelopment of Tudor Grange and to contribute to the complete transformation of this historic building.
“We have a strong working relationship with Sutton Designs and we look forward to working with them on many development projects in the near future.”
Working from its 52,000 square foot manufacturing facility, Central Window Systems provides an outstanding range of aluminium, PVCu windows and doors, as well as extensive curtain wall and roof light systems.
