A deprived building and local community receive something to go ‘ping-pong’ over

    Greenhouse Sports was founded in 2002 as a sports coaching charity. Recently, they acquired 35 Cosway Street, located in one of the most deprived wards in London, and have refurbished the building into a state of the art sport centre. Christchurch, 35 Cosway Street, was granted a Grade II* Listing in 1954.

    A radical and sensitive transformation was required to turn the church into a sports centre, to provide first-rate facilities for the coaches to deliver high-quality sports programmes, for the local community and beyond. Latitude Architects was engaged to work on the plans for the renovation, which were undertaken in consultation with Historic England.

    Surrounded by local shops, residential areas and community buildings; sound insulation was imperative to stop noise escaping and disturbing local residents.

    Cosmur Construction (London) Ltd, were appointed as Main Contractor, who approached Selectaglaze to discuss the treatment and scheduling of secondary glazing works to the windows.

    88 units were manufactured and installed, which were a combination of Series 42 fixed lights with curved and standard heads, as well as Series 80 3HS contra sliding units. The transformation has given the space a new lease of life, which will benefit the local residents for years to come.

    Established in 1966 and granted the Royal Warrant in 2004, Selectaglaze is the leading specialist in the design, manufacture and installation of secondary glazing. Selectaglaze will be showcasing a variety of secondary glazing products at 100% Build London from the 19th- 22nd September, Olympia London at Stand D325.
