Spectus windows provide finishing touch for housing development in Sheffield

Published: 22nd January 2019

Leading fenestration and installation expert EYG Commercial has installed 734 Spectus windows in a three year phased development of 84 houses on the site of the former Castle College in Sheffield.

The housing development was developed to a high specification and the windows were no exception. PVC Grey on White windows that met Secured by Design standards were required for all houses in the development. In addition, houses close to busy roads needed high performance, specialist acoustic windows. Established Spectus fabricator EYG Commercial were more than confident that the Spectus windows would deliver what was required. Nicola Arnott, Marketing Director at EYG, commented: “We have been a Spectus fabricator for many years because the systems deliver the quality and performance the commercial sector needs. We had no hesitation in using Elite 70 system windows for this project.”

EYG worked closely with the lead contractor Kier to fabricate and install windows as part of the three year phased development. Nicola said: “We have a proven record for delivering projects on budget and to deadline and this project was no exception.”

The £9m project has transformed the 2.7ha former college site in Sheffield into a vibrant new residential development comprising 84 two, three and four-bed houses. Nicola said: “We are delighted with the finished result and to have played a part in the regeneration of this part of Sheffield.”
