Over 600 Spectus products installed in flagship development

Over 500 Spectus casement windows and 100 French doors were specified and fitted in a new £10m flagship New Build Social Housing development.  

The new 75 residential properties providing a mix of one, two and three-bedroom homes in Blackpool are situated in Troutbeck Crescent on Mereside. Formerly the site of 81 run down flats built in the 1960s, the demolished site was secured for the development of the new social housing properties.

The contract for the work was awarded to Spectus approved window contractor Jade Windows, and all products were manufactured in Spectus’ Elite 70 bevelled system.

The Elite 70 bevelled system is said to have all the technical credentials for high-quality commercial applications. In this project, the windows and doors were manufactured in anthracite grey to the external face with white internally to create the modern appearance of an aluminium window but at a more sympathetic price point. All products were manufactured to PAS24:2016 standard.

The high-quality development also included the installation of several externally glazed ceramic glass panels by Jade Windows.

Initial site clearance began in September 2019 in preparation of construction on the 2.3-hectare site. The installation by Jade Windows took a total of 12 months.

Ryan Fozard, Sales Manager at Jade Windows commented: “The new site has been completely transformed. The modern houses and flats boasting gardens, balconies and car ports now provides a high standard of accommodation for residents and sits within an attractive environment that integrates with the surrounding area.

“We are delighted to have worked on this project and once again, the quality and reliability of the Spectus product range has delivered at every level. This is a flagship development for Blackpool and we are proud of the finished results.”
