Located close to the centre of The Hague, the British Embassy has a key presence amongst the foreign embassies and global organisations located in the city. The original building dates from 1864 and whilst there have been various renovations and extensions over the years, this historic building is now undergoing a major refurbishment project.

The robust quality of our security products and the strong reputation we have developed for safeguarding the British diplomatic estate in high-risk regions ensured we were a natural choice for consideration for this project. Following the competitive procurement stage, Windell were successfully awarded the contract for the refurbishment project as the most economically advantageous tenderer.

The project will commence on site in May 2013 and will involve the replacement of the original authentic timber framed windows with polyester powder coated Aluminium Blast Enhanced glazed facades. This blast protection solution delivers high performance blast mitigation whilst ensuring that the new refurbished façade is aesthetically pleasing and thermally efficient.
