Client: Clarion Housing Group
Queen’s Court in Hampstead is a listed housing association building owned by Clarion Housing Group.
Due to this building’s historic pedigree the preservation society – Hampstead Garden Suburb https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1391092 has an interest in ensuring the building is preserved and that any new developments or building works are sensitive to the heritage of the building.
Clarion Housing Group needed to ensure the doors met fire safety standards and expected to remove the existing doors completely and have these replaced with new, fully compliant fire doors. However, the society wanted the new fire doors to be in keeping with the building’s heritage but this was proving difficult to provide.
LFS found a way to upgrade the existing doors, enabling them to be compliant and fully certified without them being changed for newer doors which might not have suited the appearance of the building. Consequently all parties concerned were happy with the solution.
