Associated Steel Window Services Ltd


Established in 1960, although in a different form than it is today, the company started with a small client base working mainly for large insurance companies such as Sun Alliance and Legal & General. The original company concentrated on the servicing of steel windows, general glazing and repairs to fire escapes.

Since the mid 1980's, after the former proprietor decided to retire from the business, the company began to grow considerably and moved into a more specialised field; that of replacement, refurbishment and redecoration of steel windows encompassing a complete site package.

We found that employing direct labour to carry out all the work processes including decoration proved most successful. Our site team became specialists in their own fields, achieving extremely high standards.

Our specialised area of work became prestigious landmark buildings including County Hall, Unilever House, Victoria House, Block W5 Regent Street and Renaissance Chancery Court Hotel.

In a slight deviation from steel, we have also carried out the replacement of aluminium windows at 38 St Mary Axe and St. Catherine's House and replacement timber sash windows at 70 Chancery Lane and 1-5 Poland Street.

With this evolution, during the 1990's the style of contracts being undertaken began to change dramatically.

In more recent years ASWS has continued to expand their areas of expertise.

2013 saw the company beginning to export windows to the Middle East and worked on projects liaising directly with Aspire Katar Hospitality on Aspire Park in Doha, Qatar.

Our most recent contracts have included 21 Glasshouse Street, The Heals Building and the full refurbishment of BBC Bush House, home for many years to the BBC World Service.
