Following extensive risk assessments throughout the business to allow a safe and phased return to work, in line with HSE and government guidance, in conjunction with ongoing dialogue with our customers in recent weeks, we will begin a phased and controlled reopening of our operations to support our customers from Monday 4th May 2020.
From this date, a small team of Customer Services personnel will be available to discuss order requirements. Reduced Manufacturing and Finishing Plant teams will commence limited production from Monday 11th May 2020
It is important to note that from this date, we will be operating with a limited workforce in place to support the initial needs of the business. This will be closely monitored on a week-by-week basis and scaled-up as business levels dictate. There may be some disruption to normal delivery schedules in the short term until we are able to get back to normal trading volumes. However, we will do as much as we can to support our customer’s during this interim stage.
The health, safety and welfare of our employees, customers and suppliers remains paramount and extensive measures are being adopted to ensure that necessary hygiene and social distance precautions are observed at all times. We remain committed to playing our part in helping the national effort to control the effects of Coronavirus on the wider population and particularly to reduce the risk to the NHS.
We thank you for your patience, support and understanding during this challenging time and we look forward to resuming the excellent business partnership we have.
Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Windows specified in the construction of 22 houses and 22 flats in Crawley.
A former depot in Southgate Crawley was the site of a development of 44 high quality social housing units for Crawley Borough Council.
The high profile location next to a popular park meant the aesthetics of the development was vital. Architecturally, a contemporary interpretation of the Crawley ‘new town’ style was specified, with mainly brick elevations, using a palette of three colours, and windows with reconstituted stone surrounds on the buildings at the entrance to the site.
Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Windows were specified with Spectus Approved Window Contractor Jade Windows appointed to manage the fabrication and installation of the 200 windows the project required.
Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Windows more than met the project specifications.
Central to the development was energy efficiency to help target future fuel poverty. Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Windows can achieve a WER of A++, so could make an impressive contribution to thermal efficiency in the homes.
The flush, urban modern appearance of the windows delivered the aesthetics required. The tilt and turn functionality ensured safety and practicality across all the buildings, but in particular the two and three story blocks of flats.
The development was situated near several busy roads, which meant acoustic glazing was required on some elevations. Jade Windows worked closely with project contractors to ensure the windows’ glazing met all the standards required.
With 200 windows needing to be installed on a busy construction site, effective project management was essential. Jade Windows liaised with the project contractors and all trades on site to ensure window fabrication and installation ran smoothly. The project started in early 2018 and finished in late 2018.
Spectus windows have contributed to a high quality social housing development with a distinctive character. Councillor Stephen Joyce, Cabinet member for Housing at Crawley Borough Council, said: “We’re investing millions of pounds in much-needed affordable housing and these developments will help to address the high demand in Crawley.”
