Winchester Village

Located on the edge of the much sought after English city of Winchester, the Winchester Village is a select new Bovis Homes development comprised of quality one to six bedroom homes. 

Just less than two miles from the centre of the stunning medieval city which oozes culture, history and heritage, the Winchester Village was designed to fit seamlessly into the surrounding area, whilst the properties are thoughtfully planned with contemporary living in mind.

Following the rejection of the original plans for PVC-U frames and top lights, JELD-WEN were asked to quote for the supply of timber products as specifically requested by the planners. JELD-WEN’s high quality Castle Composite exterior doorset range in the Clifford design was selected for the front doors, along with complementing shaped top lights.

The Castle Composite doorset range is manufactured from fibreglass, with a woodgrain finish to give a natural look of real timber. The Clifford 6 panel doors selected were supplied in a mixture of black and white for the different properties, with polished chrome hardware for that extra contemporary finish. The doorsets supplied were extremely energy efficient with a U value of 1.0 W/m2K for the whole doorset, and were also specified with PAS 24 specification to comply with Approved Document Q of the Building Regulations.


The most challenging aspect of this project was the special shaped top light frames. For this JELD-WEN supplied semi-circular and rectangular Stormsure designer windows with bar detailing. The frames were fully finished in Hi-Build white paint and factory glazed with Pilkington energiKareTM Low-E glass.

Steve Northwood, JELD-WEN Sales Manager said, “The project at Winchester Village was a fantastic opportunity for JELD-WEN to display our versatility and quality with the supply of our Castle Composite doorsets and shaped top lights. The installed product achieves a traditional yet contemporary look which epitomises the overall development, and the end result looks great.”
