Avant Homes

Premium housebuilder Avant Homes partners with JELD-WEN to develop bespoke timber staircases for a brand new range of contemporary homes.

Avant Homes, leading residential developer of premium homes, who build 1300 plots per year nationally, has recently enhanced their specification to develop a brand new range of homes. Their premium development projects typically feature high end private properties with three to five bedrooms, with a brand new enhanced specification throughout, from kitchens and internal doors, fixtures and fittings right through to the stairs.

“We looked to JELD-WEN for a solution to fit with our vision and worked closely with them to implement a unique design for our projects.”

Staircases can leave a lasting impression on a potential buyer, so a bespoke design is worth the investment. Avant Homes’ ‘vision’ was to create homes inspired by the aspirations and needs of their customers, and required a bespoke staircase that was different to a standard new build specification to help differentiate the homes for sale. In order to achieve this, the housebuilder needed to partner with a manufacturer with the technology and flexibility to create something new, and enlisted the expertise of JELD-WEN.

The challenge for JELD-WEN was to create a product that was original and fit the brief: ‘different, unique and high-end,’ as well as complementing Avant Homes’ vision to create homes that are contemporary and reflective of a modern way of living.

Working closely with Avant Homes’ technical and design teams JELD-WEN’s final bespoke design included a hemlock newel post and newel cap with dark wood inlay detail. The subtle detail provided a stylish look and feel to meet Avant Homes’ ‘contemporary’ vision, and the unique baluster design gave the properties a prestigious, yet modern, feel throughout.

Martin Sanwell, Group Procurement Director at Avant Homes, said: “We looked to JELD-WEN for a solution to fit with our vision and worked closely with them to implement a unique design for our projects. We were delighted with their approach to the project and with their flexibility to work with us to develop a tailored package specifically for our needs. We were extremely pleased with the end result and the excellent service that JELD-WEN provided.”
