300 Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Windows were specified in the development of 22 one-bedroom and 16 two-bedroom flats in Cricket Hill Road, Sheffield. Formerly the site of a social club, the site was secured for a development of a social housing apartment block.
The development required 300 windows, all with demanding specifications due to the hilltop location. The contract for the work was awarded to Spectus Approved Window Contractor Jade Windows, thanks to their exceptional track record of working on previous projects with the development’s main contractor.
The Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Window is an ideal solution for both medium-rise and high-rise buildings, such as residential housing, offices, hospitals and universities. It has been specifically designed to prevent the framework from overlapping to give a more ‘flush’ appearance for superior aesthetics. In this project, the sleek look of the windows, combined with a slate grey on smooth colour, created the appearance of an aluminium window but at a more sympathetic price point.
The window offers exceptional performance, which was important on this project because of the hilltop location. It features a high-performance centre seal system with optional third weather seal and can achieve a Window Energy Rating of A++ with double glazing and a U Value of 0.8 W/(m2K) with triple glazing. Finally, 6mm toughened glass was specified to ensure maximum safety for the residents.
With 300 windows needing to be installed on a busy construction site, effective project management was essential. Jade Windows liaised with the project contractors and all trades on site to ensure window fabrication and installation ran as smoothly as possible.
Now the project is complete, Sheffield has 38 much-needed apartments. Ryan Fozard, Sales Manager at Jade Windows commented: “The site occupies a prominent position in Sheffield, so we were delighted to be invited to work on it and we are proud of the quality of the end result.”
