Crittall windows for iconic London tower

Crittall Windows has been selected to manufacture and install replacement steel fenestration for one of London’s most iconic high-rise residential blocks.

Trellick Tower remains a major symbol of the Brutalist architectural style of the 1970s. With its distinctive separate lift and service tower, connected to the main structure by aerial walkways, the 98-metre-tall, 31-storey edifice is a significant landmark in West London. 

Designed by Erno Goldfinger for the then Greater London Council, the building, which is listed Grade II*, was completed in 1972. It contains 217 flats.

The Crittall contract, just announced, is valued at £750,000 and involves replacing windows in the separate stair and service tower, communal walkways, and parts of the main building. Some 860 Corporate W20 windows are to be installed. All windows are galvanised and finished with Duralife, an architectural grade polyester powder coating.
