@sometimewoodworker
Thanks I did come across that company when I was searching for info on the net but I hadn't seen anyone that has used them. I will follow up with them as I see they do both upvc and aluminnium. I would be looking for around 30 Windows and doors combined which is about 180sqm of glass.

Can I ask what kind of glass you will be using and did they offer a quote for different types/thickness. Would you have a ballpark per sqm price for your windows that you could share?

I don't know if the figures I have would be of much help. The price per square meter is given but it includes the frame so several small windows will have a much higher cost per square meter than a single big window, and the kind of opening or fixed light also has a dramatic effect on the price. And all of our windows will use a laminated glass for theft protection so again more cost, some are just a laminate others are a laminated glass on one side and thicker glass ont the other of an IGU.

As an example I have a sliding window IGU 21.5mm (Laminate LowE G4+1.52+CLowE4 + Ars8 + C5, 21.5 mm) which is 4.48sqm @72,000
Another with the same spec IGU 2.31sqm @26,620

a laminated 8mm (Laminate LowE GL4+0.38+C4, 8.0 mm) fixed window that is 4.85sqm @ 33,170
Another with the same glass that is 1.90sqm @19,500

For anyone's information

These are Swing Door assemblies, but could easily have been Bi Fold for not much more in cost

For my House, I went for OLD Grade AAA Teak Timber Windows and Doors with 8mm Tempered Glass. The Average Cost for each Door Assembly (ex Factory from Chiang Mai ) worked out to TB 10,170 per m2 for that whole Assembly, finish stained & assembled, but without the Hardware (as I chose to buy the hardware myself). These Timber Glass Assemblies, did not cost much more than the Average Cost per m2 for UPVC Assemblies from VEKA with a Wood Grain Finish look.

NME Assembly Cost TB 56,300 (ex Factory from CM) Four Panel Assembly - It has 2 Swing Doors & 2 Fixed Side Panels - Doors and side panels are of equal width) Size is 2.57m W x 2.25m H = 5.72 m2

SME Assembly Cost TB 93,500 (ex Factory from CM) Four Panel Assembly, (2 Swing Doors & 2 Fixed Side Panels - Doors and side panels are of equal width) Size) is 3.755m W x 2.415m H = 9.01 m2

Thank you very much for this it's exactly what I'm looking for to give me a ballpark figure for my budget. It's very very helpful.

Thanks Pipoz once again it's very helpful. I'm not planning wood doors but it's great to be able to arm myself with as muck knowledge as I can before I choose.
