SWEDEN

Österport school in Ystad:
The work of restoring the school's beautiful original old windows from 1912 was started in 1990.

These windows, which are of particularly good quality and construction, were well worth preserving.

The windows have been restored to their original condition and the life expectancy associated with this. They also fulfil today's high requirements in respect of heat insulating ability and noise reduction.

Many of our students have worked on the corridor windows as part of their professional training at Bjäresjö School.

The ongoing work is now being carried out by practising windowcraft workers in the Ystad area.

Stockholm Royal Palace:
In 1992 a comprehensive investigative study was carried out on the windows of the royal palace in Stockholm, which are from the 1700s, commissioned by the Palaces building management authorities. Our experience from this and other similar projects is: Doing nothing is better than using the wrong techniques and the wrong material at the wrong time.


FINLAND

The KREA project:
The 18th century pavilion at Fagervik Estate KREA is an Objective 3 project financed partly by the European Social Fund ESF and partly by the Southern Finland county council. The project was carried out in collaboration with AB Utbildning Sydväst, Ekenäs and Byggnadsapoteket, Billnäs, during 2002 - 2003. Sixteen Swedish-speaking women aged 27 - 60 took the final test after a one-year training course to become windowcraftsmen. The pavilion is an example of course work for the qualification and was carried out in consultation with the Finnish national museums authority.


DENMARK


In connection with the rebuilding of the palace church at Christiansborg in Copenhagen, following a fire in 1992, we contributed consultancy and training services for both craftsmen and architects.


GERMANY


The window of the future” is to be found in Leipzig Commissioned by the Leipzig local authority, we performed an investigative study of a jugend style building from the 1880s in Leipzig in 1997. Its Kastenfenster”, with inward opening outer and inner casements and a large gap between the panes of glass, provide the right conditions for very good U-values and noise reduction. The goal of the project was to give information about windowcrafts techniques and opportunities and to create interest among local craftsmen for training courses in Sweden.


ENGLAND


In 1999 we were invited by Michael Knights, Conservation Officer, Norfolk County Council to talk in Norfolk about windowcraft and linseed oil products. This resulted in a long-term training collaboration with Tom Coke, Viscount Coke at Holkham Estate and owner of Holkham Linseed Oil Paints Ltd .

There are now qualified local windowcraftsmen looking after the estates 300 buildings from various periods of history.
