Timber windows from one of the UK's leading window manufacturers
JELD-WEN have been specified for the sympathetic renovation of 150
properties in a designated conservation area in the London Borough
The properties are managed by Homes for Haringey - the Arms
Length Management Organisation (ALMO) set up by Haringey Council to
take care of its 21,000 tenanted and leasehold homes. The ALMO
appointed Mulalley & Co, a refurbishment contractor, to
undertake window renewals to some of their early 20th century
terraced housing, seeking a sensitive and appropriate renewal
solution. Homes for Haringey, along with Hackney Homes, Newham
Council and Lambeth living are members of the Supply Chain
Management Group (SCMG), which collaborates with appointed
contractors in the formation of supply chains. Haringey used SCMG
to work with the Main contractor to select the window manufacturer
and window installer to be used on this project. The window
installer selected by this process is Ashford Commercial, a leading
Public Sector fenestration contractor.
JELD-WEN's Stormsure Casement and Vertical Sliding Sash windows were specified to
meet a U value of 1.6 W/m2K to
achieve current refurbishment guidelines under the Decent Homes
programme. All windows were supplied with JELD-WEN's Hi Build
factory finish in white, which enhances their appearance and
prolongs their performance.
The project involves the sympathetic refurbishment of terraced
properties that date back to the early 20th Century
as part of a major upgrade to improve their energy efficiency. The
project involved a like-for-like replacement of the windows, with
the majority being timber double glazed sliding sash styles to
retain the aesthetics of the street scene and complement
Pauline Hinds, Senior Project Manager at Homes for Haringey
said: "Our residents are really pleased with the new timber
double-glazed windows, which have drastically improved warmth and
security of their homes, and also complement the special
characteristics of the Tower Gardens Conservation area."
The Product Manager for JELD-WEN, said: "Our timber windows are
being widely specified for local authority replacement programmes,
especially in conservation areas where the aesthetics are all
important. Residents will find major improvements to their
energy efficiency while homes will retain the traditional styling
which is so important in period properties."
They added: "This latest project is testament to both the
appearance and performance of our windows, as well as the service
we offer to main contractors for major social housing
Many of the windows supplied met the Association of Chief Police
Officers' Secured by Design standard for enhanced protection
against intruder attack. In addition, wherever necessary, the
casement windows supplied at first floor level were supplied as
fire escape windows which provides enhanced safety for
JELD-WEN's Stormsure Casement range includes a wide range of
designs from standard casements to regency-style and tilt and turn
windows. All Stormsure windows have a thermal performance
that meets current building regulations, down as low as
1.1W/m2K (whole product performance).
One of the most popular styles for refurbishments, JELD-WEN's
sliding sash windows feature stepped sashes for improved
performance, yet retain traditional sight lines to complement a
street scene. Both sashes have the option of tilting inwards
for easy cleaning and maintenance, which is very important in the
social housing sector.
All JELD-WEN windows benefit from full Chain of Custody
certification, which means they originate from well managed forests
with strict reforestation programmes and therefore further enhances
the sustainability of the properties.
