100 Cricket Hill Road sits in a prominent position overlooking Sheffield. Formerly the site of a social club, the site was secured for a development of a social housing apartment.
The development of 22 one-bedroom and 16 two-bedroom apartments required 300 windows, all with demanding specifications thanks to the hilltop location. The contract for the work was awarded to Spectus Approved Window Contractor Jade Windows, thanks to their exceptional track record of working on previous projects with the development’s main contractor.
Spectus windows meet the requirements
Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Windows were specified for the project. The Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Window is an ideal solution or both medium-rise and high-rise buildings, such as residential housing, offices, hospitals and universities. It has been specifically designed to prevent the framework from overlapping to give a more ‘flush’ appearance for superior aesthetics. In this project, the sleek look of the windows, combined with a slate grey on smooth colour, created the appearance of an aluminium window but at a more sympathetic price point.
The window offers exceptional performance, which was important on this project because of the location. It features a high performance centre seal system with optional third weather seal and can achieve a Window Energy Rating of A++ with double glazing and a U Value of 0.8 W/(m2K) with triple glazing.
Finally, 6mm toughened glass was specified to ensure maximum safety for the residents.
An efficient installation
With 300 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 as smoothly as possible.
A high quality end result
Now the project is complete, Sheffield has 38 much-needed apartments. Ryan Fozard, Sales Manager at Jade Windows commented: “The site occupies a prominent position in Sheffield, so we were delighted to be invited to work on it and we are proud of the quality of the end result.”
