Lagan Homes has specified windows and doorsets from JELD-WEN,
one of the UK's leading manufacturers of timber windows and doors
for Upton Square, a development of energy efficient homes in
JELD-WEN's fully reversible (Hi Profile Combi) timber
windows, DreamVu™ patio doors and Swedoor front entrance
doors were specified to enable the development of one to four
bedroom homes and apartments to meet the planning requirements of
this sustainable development.
Properties on the development have been built to level four of
the Code for Sustainable Homes and were highly insulated, with the
doors and windows required to achieve a U value of 1.4 W/m²K.
JELD-WEN has supplied windows and doors to 63 properties on the
first phase and is also supplying to subsequent phases, with over
140 properties in total being built on the site.
The properties have a brick and render exterior and the windows
and patio doors were supplied with JELD-WEN's performance enhancing
Hi-Build factory finish in Dusky Grey to further enhance their
aesthetics and prolong their lifespan. All ground floor windows
were supplied to meet Secured by Design standards, which means they
meet the enhanced security specification against intruder attack
approved by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).
Craig Hutchison, Site Manager at Lagan Homes said: "It was
really important that the windows and doors on this development
complemented and enhanced the local area. Timber windows were a
planning requirement and we worked closely with JELD-WEN to ensure
they met the very strict U values required on this development.
Residents of Upton Square will benefit from homes that not only
look good but also minimise their energy bills." Steve Renshaw,
Sales Specialist at JELD-WEN, said: "Our windows and doorsets have
been specified for a number of developments where very low U values
are required. On this development reducing the carbon footprint and
retaining the aesthetics was all important and our team created a
bespoke solution that met with the developer's requirements
JELD-WEN's fully reversible windows used throughout the
development provide total flexibility in design and configuration,
with the option of top or side hung. These windows are popular for
their aesthetics and the fact that cleaning can be carried out
inside the building. It is little wonder that Lagan Homes specified
JELD-WEN's DreamVu™ patio doorsets, which are renowned for enabling
developers to maximise light in the home, without compromising on
thermal performance. These doorsets offer U values down to 1.0
W/m²K, as part of helping this development to meet its required
thermal performance levels.
JELD-WEN's attractive DreamVu™ doorsets were supplied to in timber,
but are also offered in aluminium clad timber. The Swedoor entrance
doors by JELD-WEN were also supplied in fully finished timber in
Dusky Grey to meet the required 1.4 W/m2K U value. Steve Renshaw
adds: "Our timber windows are being widely specified for
developments where energy efficiency and sustainability is
essential. We work with a number of developers to meet their
bespoke requirements for windows and doorsets, as part of meeting
the increasingly stringent thermal performance of new builds."
Lagan Homes is building this development of affordable homes on
behalf of Metropolitan Home Ownership. The homes are designed for
first time buyers, couples and growing families and are located on
the edge of Northampton. 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
