The City & Guilds Group helps people, organisations and economies develop their skills for growth.

The Grade II Listed Head Office is situated in Smithfields, London. Whitbread’s Premier Inn acquired part of the City & Guilds Group’s Head Office and is constructing a new hotel next door. With heavy plant machinery adjacent to the offices, the noise pollution was becoming disruptive.
The company approached Selectaglaze for a window upgrade to all floors of their Head Office which overlooked the building site. A total of 51 units were installed; a wide range of products were combined for the specification, including; Series 42 fixed lights, Series 45 and 41 casements, Series 10 and 15 horizontal sliding units, all designed to suit the existing primary glazing. Employees at the City & Guilds Group are impressed with the level of sound attenuation received and it has made the working environment across all the office floors far more peaceful.
“We were very happy with the installation and quality of the products supplied by Selectaglaze. There was little supervision required from our part, the workmanship was excellent and they left the site in an immaculate condition”.
Selectaglaze is the leading specialist in the design, manufacture and installation of secondary glazing; established in 1966 and a Royal Warrant Holder since 2004.
