Conservation area development

More than 500 Profile 22 Optima flush casement windows have been installed on a private housing development in Whalley Range, Manchester.

The main contractor for the project was Lane End Group and the contract for the windows and doors in the development was awarded to Profile 22 approved contractor Kingfisher Windows.

The site was on land formerly owned by the independent school St Bede’s College and situated near a local conservation area. It meant the development needed to be sympathetic to the character of the local architecture.

Jonny Reynolds, technical director at Kingfisher Windows, said: “The Optima flush casement window offers the perfect solution for developments in areas protected by conservation orders that need a window that replicates the 19th-century timber window design, while offering modern features and benefits.”
