Spectus fabricator, Worsley Glass supplied and installed over 300 windows and 120 sets of French doors to complete phase one of the Sillivan Way development in Manchester.
Once complete, with Phase Two well under way, the company will have fabricated and installed nearly 1000 windows and over 270 sets of French doors in total.
“The challenges that the Sillivan Way project presented us we’re considerable,” said Anthony Kilbourn, technical sales manager at Worsley Glass Ltd. “The project has been split into two phases due to the sheer scale of what is required on site. Phase one commenced at the beginning of 2013, two new build apartment block, requiring over 300 windows and 120 sets of French doors. Because of the enormity of the project it was essential that we used a profile supplier who we could trust to deliver on time. For the past seven years we have used Spectus Window Systems profiling and we knew we could trust them to complete their part of the project. ”
The selection of the window system profile to be used on the Sillivan Way project was vital as Anthony Kilbourn explained: “We needed to ensure that we had a profile system that was not only manufactured to the highest standards but was also fully compliant. We opted for the industry-leading Spectus Elite 70, a multi-chamber bevelled profile system.”
The profiling colour specified by the architects at Sillivan Way was the popular anthracite grey, which complements the building and surrounding area.
