Recent Case Studies


London arts venue project wins RIBA London's Conservation Award

Mumford and Wood were approached by Mace Contractors to work on a Grade two listed building within the historic Woolwich Arsenal.

Known by many as the ‘Fireworks Factory,’ the building has an important history, having been used as a Tudor dockyard, then from the mid-17th century was at the heart of Britain’s war machine, home to the Royal Artillery and factories that made gun carriages, cannon and munitions. Recently renovated as an arts venue, it now boasts a performance space containing dance studios, artists’ workshops, cafés and rental spaces.

As part of the building renovations, Mumford & Wood were instructed to design and manufacture 11 timber windows, including 7 from our Classic range and 4 from our Heritage range. In order to maintain the historic building aesthetic we used putty glazing for authenticity. The box sashes were made for structural openings that were either adjusted or opened back up having being blocked up for a number of years. Section sizes were adjusted on elevation to line through with other adjacent windows that remained in situ, having been renovated.

We are proud to have worked on such an important project that has since been recognised by RIBA, winning their ‘London’s Conservation Award.’

The STEAMhouse Building

Mumford & Wood recently completed the award winning 'STEAMhouse building’, launched by Birmingham University.

The STEAMhouse building dates back to 1899 and was seriously damaged by fire in 2007. Previously used as a manufacturer for the Eccles Rubber & Cycle Company this Grade A listed building undertook a £70m transformation to become the creative hub it is today. The space now supports businesses, academics, hosting companies and start-up businesses, supporting enterprise and industry. The Victorian Society was so impressed with the transformation of this historic building that it has been presented with the 'Birmingham and West Midlands Conservation Award 2023', in recognition of outstanding restoration.

Mumford & Wood supported this transformation by designing and manufacturing 45 bespoke timber windows and door, tailored to fit the unique openings found on the façade of the building.

Matthew Blaylock, Commercial Director, Mumford & Wood states:

“We enjoy the challenges that listed buildings bring, and so with strict planning requirements in place, we understood the importance of replicating the detail of the original windows but offering the performance of a modern day product. Timber Casement windows were designed for the ground and first floor, and Timber Vertical Sliding Spring Sash windows to the second floor. These were chosen from our Conservation range and tailor-made to replicate the original frame margins and Ovolo profiles. It’s always an honour to work on a historic project like this, it’s what our products are designed for.”


Self Build Barnet Home

The client's of this beautiful new build home were looking to build something with a mix of both modern and traditional when they selected Mumford & Wood as their window and door supplier.

The Conservation range spring sash window was recommended as a modern day alternative of the cord & weighted box sash window. It uses a concealed spring loaded mechanism instead of the cords, weights and pulleys found in a traditional sash window.

In addition, flush faced timber Casement Windows were used, complimenting the mix of modern and classic styling. In total we manufactured 19 Spring Sashes, 7 Casement windows and doors, plus an elegant bi-fold, all finished in a neutral 'Signal White.' We also manufactured a bespoke Jet Black entrance door, featuring Chrome finishes.

Maria, the homeowner states;

“The house makes us feel happy and comfortable. When you first walk in, the entrance hall and staircase are very impressive. Our favourite rooms are the elegant piano room and the study, which provides a very light and bright environment for the work from home era.”
