Site: Coastwatch Tower
Project: NCI Coastwatch Tower windows and door
Details: Crown Commercial supplied windows and a door for the new enlarged NCI Coastwatch Tower on the seafront at Teignmouth in South Devon. The tower is part of a network of 50 stations run by a charity and manned entirely by volunteers.
The specification called for the front and side windows to have a 10 degree lean out so that the glare from the sea would be drastically reduced, enabling the coastwatch personnel a clearer sighting of potential hazards. Sorting out the corner angled sections was challenging but achievable and the coastwatch staff were extremely happy with the outcome.
The tower could not be out of action for long and the schedule was tight but Crown Commercial were able to meet and fulfil the brief in good time.
