Dessian has long been regarded for its high-standard position within the window market, so it came as no surprise when developer, CALA Homes (West), approached them for help on their Riverside at Bothwell development. This installation however, required Dessian to adhere to stricter than usual residential requirements.
Considered to be a well sought-after area, Bothwell is located in the heart of the major transport links, within close proximity to both Glasgow and Edinburgh. Although it was just a small development for CALA, it was a very idyllic and affluent one, nestled right on the Clyde River. It is therefore, unsurprisingly, a hotbed for the rich and famous. That being said, challenges were set and standards were high.
In total, CALA Homes was tasked to construct 12 large modern houses and apartments, with all the windows and doors specified in the popular anthracite grey profile. The first challenge came in the specification; the development needed to be modern, yet in-keeping with the area’s traditional heritage. Dessian had to strike a fine balance to ensure that the build was progressive and contemporary in style, but still held onto the natural look of the semi-rural area.
