Over 500 Profile 22 Optima Flush Casement Windows were installed in a private housing development in Whalley Range, Manchester.
The main contractor for the project was Lane End Group and the contract for the windows and doors in the development was awarded to Profile 22 Approved Contractor Kingfisher Windows, a leading manufacturer and supplier of windows, doors and conservatories.
The site was on land formerly owned by the prestigious independent school St Bede’s College and situated near a local conservation area. It meant the development needed to be sympathetic to the character of the local architecture.
The Profile 22 Optima Flush Casement Window more than met the demanding requirements of the development. Jonny Reynolds, Technical Director at Kingfisher Windows, said: “The Optima Flush Casement Window offers the perfect solution for developments in areas protected by conservation orders that need a window that replicates the 19th-century timber window design, whilst offering modern features and benefits.”
The windows for the Scholars Walk development were fabricated in grey on white to deliver a striking but architecturally sensitive appearance.
Construction on the Scholars Walk development was completed in July 2019. With over 500 windows needing to be installed, all Kingfisher Windows’ experience in working on large scale developments was required. Jonny said: “We believe the best results come from in working in partnership with all the other trades on site and keeping lines of communication open at all times.”
The completed project brings much-needed family housing to Manchester. Jonny concluded: “We were delighted to be part of a project building housing for this area and we’re very proud of the high-quality results achieved.”
