Port of Liverpool Building: Introduction

The conservation, preservation and rejuvenation of historic windows is at the core of FINEO’s motivation. Thanks to FINEO’s advanced new vacuum insulated glazing (VIG) technology, older timber sash or casement window frames can be retrofitted with glass that is the width of single glazing but offers the performance of triple glazing. That was the goal with The Port of Liverpool building and their historic windows.

Port of Liverpool Building: History

The Port of Liverpool building (also known as the Dock Office) is an Edwardian grade 2 listed building protected by Heritage England. Construction on this stunning historic building began in 1904, and it opened in 1907. Most of the original stained glass windows were destroyed during the Blitz in the Second World War.

Port of Liverpool Building: Results

The old single glazing was removed and replaced with FINEO vacuum glazing. This saw a huge improvement in the energy-efficiency and thermal performance of the glass. Going from a 5.8 W/(m²K)  U-value of single glazing to an impressive 0.7 W/(m²K) with FINEO. As FINEO is only 7.7mm thick it is perfect for heritage projects, as it maintains the existing historic wooden window frames. This project was completed with the help of AP Projects and Gills Joinery.
