Vista and Spektaglaze transform Liverpool student accommodation in the grounds of Iconic Cathedral


Cathedral Campus

Vista Panels are currently working with fellow Merseyside firm Spektaglaze on the refurbishment of student accommodation in the grounds of Liverpool’s iconic Anglican Cathedral. Dwell Student Living has embarked on a facelift programme of works to include new windows and composite doors on the site.

Vista are supplying 70 XtremeDoors front and back for Dwell’s Cathedral Campus. Finished in black with a matching Eurocell outerframe, the versatile XtremeDoor was specified as its appearance is in keeping with the heritage look of its surroundings.

“As a Merseyside firm ourselves, we are absolutely delighted and incredibly proud to see XtremeDoor in the grounds of what is undoubtedly one of Liverpool’s, if not the UK’s most beautiful and iconic buildings,” comments Ian Smith, Business Development Manager at Vista. “This is another project that highlights XtremeDoor as the perfect replacement for timber doors, with its high-performance 4mm GRP skin and woodgrain finish expertly replicating a hardwood appearance.”

“XtremeDoor is designed to deliver a first-class solution for any application, outperforming its competitors in thermal efficiency and providing a durable barrier with Document Q and PAS 24 accreditations, that can withstand and shrug off any potential intruders. We’re more than confident our doors can offer the security students need and the durability and long-life Dwell will expect.”

Situated in the heart of Liverpool and with 35 years experience Spektaglaze has gained an enviable reputation for the supply only and supply and installation of quality uPVC windows and doors to the commercial and residential sectors.

Cathedral Campus offers 384 spaces across both communal housing and traditional halls of residence. The site is predominantly home to students studying at the neighbouring Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) but also students from Liverpool’s John Moore University.
