In 2012 we were commissioned by Jaguar Estates by provide all of the glazing throughout the prestigious Storth Hollow development in Ranmoor, Sheffield.
Jaguar Estates is a family-run property developer and investor in South Yorkshire. Founded in the early 1990s their constant growth and expansion have enabled them to now offer both commercial and residential developments across the north of England – all built and finished to a very high standard.
Recently their development skills have focused on niche markets ensuring an offering of high-quality, carefully considered properties, in locations where they would be happy to live themselves. This has achieved successful results again and again, outlining their belief that homes should be as unique as the people who live in them. The Storth Hollow development is testament to that, a unique development that we are proud to have been involved in.
Storth Hollow is a special enclave of modernist architecture in the top residential area of Ranmoor. The site consists of eight bespoke plots on 2.3 acres of landscaped gardens all boasting distinctive, individual aesthetics and all built to a very high specification.
Each of the houses is designed to fit in with the mature garden surrounds including specimen trees and shrubs and a – secret garden to which owners have private access. The houses are built on different terraced levels and have secluded views that will change with the seasons due to the woodland surrounds. Principal materials comprise of carefully sourced natural stone, zinc cladding and render to selected elevations.
Our anthracite grey aluminium windows and bi folding doors open onto south westerly facing terraces that are positioned to benefit from the views of the surrounding woodlands. The modern homes all benefit massively from natural light, this is gained throughout the properties, all boasting distinctive architectural features such as glazed entrance atriums, panoramic picture windows, floor to ceiling windows, many spanning two floors with back painted glass concealing the structural supports within the fabric of the building. The properties include our aluminium front entrance doors and all contain our industry leading XP View bi folding doors complete with electronically operated Uniblinds.
We have worked very closely with the developers from Jaguar Estates over a number of years on this and several other high specification residential projects. We have been able to meet specific and tight build programme deadlines. We have provided solutions on site for bespoke requirements, and offered various different products throughout all the various plots. All of the products were manufactured by ourselves and installed by our in-house fitting teams. The homeowners will now not only benefit from a stunning new home but also the piece of mind that they also have a fully comprehensive guarantee from Express Bi Folding Doors for all their doors, window, and glazing products.
