VEKA customer S&A Developments has been busy completing a number of commercial contracts lately, all whilst promoting the benefits of recycled PVC-U. The Darwen-based company has manufactured 1000 windows, using VEKA's renowned Infinity recycled profile system, which have been fitted into two different social housing projects in Wigan.
S&A Developments has worked with Baas Construction to upgrade the social housing offering on Knowsley Avenue in Wigan. The intention was to make the properties more energy efficient and VEKA's Infinity profile system was chosen for the replacement of all 500 windows.
The company then went on to work with Connolly's Construction to replace a further 500 windows for another Social Housing project on Wigan's Lee Lane.
S&A Director Dave Connell said: “We were chosen for the project as we were able to manufacture and fit the window systems quickly and cost-effectively. Thanks to VEKA's Infinity system, we were able to provide a high-spec system that offers great sustainability benefits as well as energy efficiency. Infinity is manufactured using up to 80% recycled content and easily met all the requirements of this project.
“The windows for both sites were double-glazed, white, bevelled Infinity systems.
“Since the windows have been installed, we've been told that residents are reporting that they only need to put 50% as much into their gas/electricity meters. So if that's not a good advert for the energy-efficiency of these windows, I don't know what is!”
