Housing refurb

Profile 22’s Optima Fully Sculptured windows were chosen for the refurbishment of 38 properties, consisting of a mixture of houses and flats, in Wolverhampton, West Midlands.

The manufacture and installation of the 300 white Optima casement windows was awarded to Walsall-based Select Windows.

The project was part of the Nehemiah Housing Project, which is designed to build successful, sustainable and diverse communities by providing housing in a culturally sensitive way to their tenants. The properties have been designed for people with disabilities or specific religious/cultural needs and offer energy-efficient homes to minimise the impact of fuel poverty.

Profile 22’s Optima system met all requirements for thermal efficiency and was more than able to achieve the WER A+ rating specification required on this project.

Shefeeq Rahman, property services officer at Nehemiah House Project, said: “Profile 22 is an established and considered brand in the social housing sector which gave us the reassurance that their products would not only perform well but would continue to look good in years to come. We had excellent design and survey support from the experienced commercial team and full support with our installation program. Our residents are delighted with the new windows.”

Select was responsible for all appointments and carried out the work on time and on budget whilst adhering to pandemic-safety protocols throughout the fitting process.

Gary Wylde, managing director at Select Windows said: “Due to our excellent relationship with the main contractor and our ability to deliver this project on time, we are now tendering for additional work to further enhance the client’s housing stock.”
