Community regeneration

Profile 22’s Optima windows were chosen for the construction of 18 houses, 38 flats and two retail units as part of a regeneration scheme in Maidstone, Kent.

Housing association Golding Homes invested £50 million in a three-phase regeneration project to transform and improve the former Park Wood estate in Maidstone. The scheme involved providing more than 200 new homes, mainly family houses, as well as new community facilities including new shops, and a much wider package of investment to improve the local area.

Education, housing and healthcare contractor Rydon secured the £9.3 million contract to deliver the third and final phase of the project. When it came to the windows and doors on the project, Rydon turned to longstanding supplier Feature Architectural Fabrications, based in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Procurement manager Paul Delaney said: “Rydon specified PVCU windows and doors and Optima from Profile 22 delivered the technical and aesthetic requirements needed.”
