A space for the family

A space for the family

Albino and his family were keen to create a space to entertain guests and family. “I’m Italian, so when we have family get-togethers there are at least 20 people! We wanted to entertain, host parties and have friends over for dinner using both the indoor and outdoor spaces really easily”.

The solution was to build an adaptable extension with all the living and entertaining space the family was looking for – and that includes easy access to the garden. Albino did a lot of the research into the products and systems to be used in this project. He decided to visit the Schüco showroom in Milton Keynes to take a look at what Schüco has to offer – and liked what he saw.

When Thomas Charles Grant Ltd, Albino’s chosen fabricator for the project, told him that he is a licensed Schüco partner and recommended Schüco, Albino knew he already liked the products.

“I was looking for aluminium windows and sliding door systems. Schüco just seemed to tick all the boxes in terms of both quality and design. After looking at reviews of previous projects Thomas Charles Grant had completed, I was convinced Tom and his team were fit for the job. I’m pretty happy with my choices as everything looks amazing!”.

After talking with Tony and Tom Grant in more detail and finding out what possibilities Schüco products and systems could unlock, Albino booked another appointment at the showroom to look at the specific lift-and-slide door systems that Schüco provides.

He decided to go for the ASS 70.HI lift-and-slide system and the ASS 70 FD bi-fold door system for the doors due to its additional design options. For the windows, Albino chose the AWS 70 SC window system.

Albino really appreciated the time Tom took to explain the different options. “One of the main reasons we started this project was to make our lives more sociable by giving us a space to entertain guests. The large Schüco lift-and-slide doors play a really important role in enabling this at all times of year.

“We’ve now had a few parties and barbecues and everyone has been very impressed, especially in summer when it’s all opened up. I would definitely use Schüco again. It’s been two years and we’ve had no issues whatsoever, which I think is a real sign of quality”.

Further plans are in the pipeline too, as Albino intends to renovate the façade of their home: a project which will include seven more Schüco windows.
