High profile affordable housing
150 Spectus Elite 70 flush tilt and turn windows were specified in the development of 26 two bed flats for social rent, including 10 amenity homes on an urban site in the heart of Paisley, Renfrewshire.
The new development replaces the former Arnotts department store in the town’s new Abbey Quarter.
The project was secured by Spectus approved Walker Profiles, a manufacturer, supplier and installer based in Motherwell.
The flats had a streamlined design with interior spaces offering generous daylight from the windows.
The 150 windows were manufactured from Elite 70 flush tilt and turn system from Spectus Window Systems, which is suitable for both medium-rise and high-rise buildings. The system has been designed so the framework doesn’t overlap, giving a flush appearance similar to an aluminium window.
In this project, the windows were manufactured in smooth anthracite grey on white.
Due to the high-traffic location, noise reduction was critical, and acoustic glazing was used throughout.
Walker Profiles’ David MacGregor said: “We were delighted to work on this project. We have helped to create a striking building that delivers much-needed affordable housing in this area.”
