K102: Woodweave / Borrowdale Hotel, Lake District
A popular 19th Century hotel in the Lake District, the Borrowdale Hotel has undergone an extensive refurbishment. The designers at Frank Whittle Partnership, who delivered the project, needed a supplier who could replace the old conservatory blinds, which quickly and easily managed the conservatory’s apex design.
James Robertshaw’s extensive commercial experience and track record of delivering other similar high-quality installations proved invaluable in the decision-making and later the delivery of the project, which involved replacing the old pinoleum blinds with a natural, organic woodweave product, which was fresher and more modern.
“Whereas the old roof blinds all operated differently, the new system is a lot neater. As well as looking great they work really effectively too. The hotel is really happy with the product. We’d definitely use James Robertshaw again – they were very professional to work with and the products are great too.”
