White uPVC windows are often the product of choice in large blocks of council flats. This is because they are a secure, energy-efficient and cost effective solution. This large development, Symington House in London was no different.
Occasionally, our commercial customers secure council contracts which require us to install new energy efficient uPVC windows into large blocks of flats at competitive rates. Quite often the old windows will be old uPVC windows or rotting softwood timber windows. Either way, they need replacing.
The designs are often quite simple on these developments, with the client (the council) looking for the most cost effective solution to the problem. This means us designing, ordering and installing white uPVC windows and doors that comply with part L, part M and the recently introduced Part Q of building regulations. This means that they comply with the security values, thermal values and disabled access required.
When it comes to the installation on large scale installations like this, the main contractor generally provides the scaffolding for access and winches to get the frames and glass up to where they need to be. This means that we attend site with the white uPVC windows and doors as well as the glass, and with the main contractors access equipment and sometimes manpower, we get everything to where they need to be and install everything. Generally there is a large skip provided on site, which all of the old windows and doors go into.
We are sure the residents of the block certainly appreciate the new Swish white uPVC windows and doors, which will be more secure, thermally efficient and easier to use than what was installed for the 20 or so years previously.
With its distinctive blue railings, the development is instantly recognisable to anyone who regularly passes through the area.
