Ipswich Borough Council and The Window Company secure homes for 300 families

Tags:   |   Added:

Our houses will provide homes for 300 families currently living in overcrowded or unsuitable accommodation, and will also support jobs in the construction industry.

The £10m development at Bader Close in Ipswich includes 108 new one, two and four bedroom homes, all of which feature casement windows in contemporary grey foil manufactured by Veka fabricator Glazerite and composite doors supplied by Door Stop.

The Window Company (Contracts), which was named the Installer of the Year at the 2014 Glass and Glazing awards, was awarded the installation contract on the basis of its previous successful work with the main contractors Keepmoat.
The Chelmsford based company was not only able to respond quickly to the tender from leading construction and regeneration specialists Keepmoat but it was also able to guarantee completion within the timescale laid down by the council.

TWC120 The Window Company (Contracts) is installing Veka windows and doors in Ipswich Council’s largest housing project for 50 yearsThe Window Company (Contracts) selected Glazerite to manufacture the windows set out in the specification after seeing them at the industry FIT show in June 2014.

Managing Director David Thornton said:  “We were impressed with the Glazerite product on the stand and followed this up with a visit to their fabrication plant in Wellingbrough.

They satisfied us that they could deliver the quality and service we required and were helpful in terms of setting up the necessary lines of credit for a contract on this scale.”
Trevor Fitzgerald, Contracts Manager for Keepmoat, said: “The Window Company (Contracts) have been a pleasure to work with on this exciting project.  We’ve been particularly impressed with the measures put in place to ensure the project ran smoothly and their attention to detail, such as the provision of window protectors on all windows to prevent scratching or damage.”

Councillor David Ellesmere, Leader at Ipswich Borough Council, said of the project: “This is a major milestone in our ambitious plans to build more than 300 new homes in Ipswich. Rather than stand by in the face of the national house building crisis, we have decided to build houses ourselves.

David Thornton, The Managing Director writes: "We showed once again on this contract why we were chosen as the Installer of the Year at the G14 awards – our product quality, administration efficiency and customer service were all outstanding".

Oldham-based D&M Windows & Doors Ltd has recently completed the transformation of a Liverpool office building using windows fabricated by The Glazerite UK Group Ltd.

70's office block transformation by D&M Windows
Offices housing employees of the industrial manufacturer, Siemens, have undergone a huge facelift thanks to the Glazerite UK Group Ltd and their customer, D&M Windows Ltd.  Oldham's D&M Windows was chosen by contractors Brown & Bancroft to carry out the transformation of the four storey building in Congleton, Cheshire, because of their extensive experience in commercial and domestic installations. Glazerite fabricated and supplied over 200 VEKA M70 windows in white for the install, which took three months to complete.  Mark Hoolickin, who runs D&M Windows with his son, Darren, says: "As a family-run business we always want to ensure that every customer receives the very best. Thanks to VEKA and Glazerite, we were able to achieve everything Siemens wanted, and we've since been contacted by them to install new windows on their manufacturing units." "We've worked with D&M Windows for a number of years, supplying windows and doors for bespoke domestic projects through to large commercial installs like this one. Their work is always of the highest quality and we're delighted to have been able to work with them on this prestigious project." - Peter Smith, Area Sales Manager North West - Glazerite UK Group

Adeva Windsor House Project
Kent based Adeva Home Improvements has built on its recent success in large scale commercial window installation with a triple glazing retrofit for a sheltered housing scheme in Whitstable.  Once again, the group praised The Glazerite UK Group Ltd and VEKA for their support in specifying and completing the contract, for 279 casement windows in the VEKA 70mm fully sculptured system finished in white, at the 12-storey Windsor House. As with the previous installation, VEKA supplied the wind load calculations essential for installations at such hight, with other technical support by Glazerite, without which Director Geoff Dwyer said the company would not have had the confidence to tender for the work.  "They were with us all the way when we had the chance of our first large scale commercial contract. That gave us the confidence to continue our activity in the sector and the result was another success for us with Windsor House. The technical support from Glazerite and VEKA was brilliant, the clients are very pleased with the result and we are already looking at several more prospects." Elderly residents at Windsor House were finding the first generation double glazed PVC-U had become draughty as well as making the flats costly to hear in cold weather. Adeva replaced them with far more energy-efficient A+Rated, triple glazed VEKA 70FS units, for main contractor Hamilton Building Contractors.  Jason Thompson, Director of The Glazerite UK Group, said the installation was another model example of what installers of any size can achieve with the right materials and the right technical support: "Most good installers are perfectly capable of carrying out such medium and even large scale commercial contracts but may be put off by the technical back-up and specification advice. But all Glazerite installer partners know that all you need is a good, supportive fabricator and system supplier and they can achieve virtually anything."
