HERITAGE AND LISTED PROPERTY GLASS AND GLAZING

As heritage glass specialists, much of Lightworks restoration and conservation work is carried out on the listed property glass and glazing of historic buildings. With over two decades of experience within the heritage/listed property glazing sector, the company works closely with clients/custodians, architects and conservation officers to ensure the most suitable and sympathetic approach to intervention and use of materials is employed. This might be a simple matter of undertaking insitu repairs, removing and reapplying perimeter pointing or freeing up and re-decorating opening casement frames. In the case of severe damage or the partial/complete structural failure of listed property glass, its removal may be required for more extensive studio based intervention.

Mouth-blown cylinder glass is sourced from Germany (Lamberts), and France (St. Just Glass) specifically for use in historic glazing applications. Alongside this, Lightworks have built longstanding relationships with a number of trusted specialist metalworking and joinery contractors. For the supply of new traditional opening casements, the firm regularly specifies opening casements manufactured by The Cotswold Casement Company.

Lightworks offer a full range of specialist glass and glazing services to listed property owners and historic building custodians including:

  • Remedial/insitu repairs on-site
  • Full studio based repair, restoration & conservation
  • Design, production & installation of new leaded and stained glass schemes
  • Internal secondary glazing systems
  • Condition & conservation assessments & reports
  • Refurbishment/replacement of metal casement frames and openers
