Old Co-op Bakery – Gillingham

Swan Doors & Windows have recently supplied 50no. curved head windows to a prominent listed building in Gillingham, Kent.

This grand building is believed to have started life as a Co-op bakery in 1873 when door-to-door sales of fresh bread were commonplace.

The building has seen many changes of use in it’s past but is now being converted into a Grocery Store on the First Floor and 8 separate flats on the First and Second Floor offering amazing views across Gillingham and down to the Medway Estuary.

Our part in this conversion was to supply & install (through our installation partners) new Smart System Alitherm Heritage Windows.

The Alitherm Heritage system was designed from the ground up to be used as a direct replacement for steel windows. The slim sight-lines and specially designed Astragal bars mean that this window looks the part when the overall look of the building needs to be retained (or restored). Being a modern Aluminium thermally broken system means that the new windows meet and exceed compliance with the current building regulations for thermal efficiency.
