Founded in 1845 by William Aldwin Soames, Brighton College was the first Victorian public school to be founded in Sussex. Soames originally planned for use of the Brighton Pavilion, but after refusal by Queen Victoria, built the school in the suburb of Kemptown. Now a Preparatory School for children aged 8 to 13, this monumental white building is located a short walk from the sea front and only minutes away from the beauty of the South Downs National Park.

The College itself is one of Britain’s leading schools. Described as “Britain’s most forward thinking school” by The Week, it was named UK Independent School of the Year 2013-14 at the Independent Schools Awards, having previously been awarded the coveted title of England’s Independent School of the Year 2011-12 by The Sunday Times. Every year, more and more of Brighton’s pupils secure places at the UK’s most esteemed universities, particularly Oxford and Cambridge. The College’s former pupils number amongst Britain’s foremost business, professional and political leaders; and numerous sporting, creative and artistic talents.

The building, although in a good state of repair in general was in need of bringing back to its former glory, a project that Parker Joinery are extremely familiar with and as such, they were chosen by TK Installations to provide the building materials and windows for both phases of this prestigious renovation. Having worked with Bereco on a number of similarly complex and prestigious projects Parker Joinery knew that Bereco Traditional Range Sliding Sash Windows would be the perfect partner to restore this elegant building whilst remain in keeping with original details.

In order to perfectly tie in with the existing windows, a cords and weights sliding sash window was chosen. Cords and Weights windows are designed with a box section which houses the weights as the sash windows of old. This box sash then sits perfectly behind the external brick reveal to partially conceal the timber section from the outside.

As each window opening featured an arched stonework detail at the top, the windows were designed with an elegant curved plate detail which perfectly marries with the arch of the stone. Although aesthetically pleasing from the outside, the arched stonework could be seen through the inside of the original windows. The new windows were drawn up to design out this detail to make for a much cleaner finish from the inside.

Being painted in a RAL 9010 Pure White, each window blends eloquently with the façade of the building adding to the grandeur. A hardwood timber was selected for this particular project which is sustainably sourced from FSC® 100% certified timber, which is something that is particularly unique in the marketplace when it comes to Hardwood.

Brighton-based TK Installations provide a complete design and build service, and work in partnership with many architects, design consultants and project management companies and organisations.

We replaced the window that our designers and construction team had ordered from Potton as it was far too high and small. I ordered a much bigger window direct from Bereco. They were extremely helpful and kept in touch regularly, helping us by bringing the date forward as we needed the replacement window urgently to allow work to progress.
The window fitted perfectly. It was of a very good quality and I am really pleased I decided to order a bigger one.


At all stages throughout the process of getting information, getting a quotation and dealing with queries, placing the order and organising delivery the staff were very polite, clear and professional.
The product arrived safely and has been admired by local skilled timber craftsmen.

Ian Bloese

A really good company to deal with. Very helpful team of people from sales, technical support and delivery. Any time I called, I did not have to wait to speak to the right person and help was immediate. So not only great customer service but also terrific products, well designed and exact fit. Competitively priced.

Graham Roberts

I was very happy with Bereco’s service levels and the products are excellent, very good quality. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Simon Hazelton

Beautifully constructed windows which do the job perfectly. Handled Covid disruption effectively. Installation went smoothly. All in all a job very well done. Would recommend without reservation.


Visited the showroom last year and impressed with the finish and quality. Just as delighted with the windows and back door that we ordered. They look fabulous.
