The Meeting House is located near the pantiles, a Georgian colonnade, in the picturesque conservation village of Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent. Originally built as a Methodist chapel in the 18th century, the historic building has since been converted into a luxury office space.

Lesters Building Contractors were chosen to replace the original windows and door due to their significant experience of working on complex conservation projects.

Why Bereco?

Lesters Building Contractors have worked with Bereco for over 10 years and continue to be impressed with the versatility and quality that the product range can offer. Due to the complexity and architectural sensitivity of this project Glen Lester had no hesitation in choosing Bereco to supply windows and doors from the Traditional Range. Working with joinery specialist Ian Dear at Parker Joinery ensured the successful achievement of the required specification.

Bereco were able to supply bespoke floor to ceiling feature windows with arched head detail and black glazing to match the original design. The bespoke nature of Bereco products meant the windows could be individually designed to accommodate varying opening sizes.

Interesting Fact

The Meeting House was one of the first Methodist Chapels to be built in England. The black glazing panes are designed to conceal the floor joists of this period building whilst adding a unique twist to the window design.

“We have worked with Bereco for over 10 years and have continued to be impressed by the quality of the products and level of service we continue to receive. Nothing seems to beat Bereco, from the arched topped flush casement windows in The Meeting House to 7 metre wide Folding Sliding Door we have used in other projects. We go to Bereco with challenging projects and they are able to find the solutions to meet our fenestration needs ”

Special Requirements

This was a challenging project due to the age and location of the building and required several meetings with local planning officers.

It was essential that the replacement timber windows and doors remained sympathetic with the historic structure of the building and be in keeping with the surrounding conservation area. The windows had to be of a traditional appearance to replicate the existing feature windows whilst offering 21st century, high-performance features to improve energy efficiency and reduce heat loss.

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.
