Social housing in Liverpool maximises thermal efficiency with Optima casement windows from Profile 22.

A £4.6 million project by Liverpool Mutual Homes (LMH) delivered family homes for affordable rent on a neglected brownfield site and featured Optima Windows from Profile 22 as part of a series of measures to maximise energy efficiency.

Leighton Dene in Fazakerley, Liverpool, was once the site of a run-down nursing home and had lain vacant for a number of years. Liverpool City Council released the site to the Liverpool Housing Partnership, an innovative housing consortium model that sees receipts from land sales to Redrow Homes ring-fenced and reinvested into affordable housing. The housing scheme in this case comprised 17 two-bedroom and 5 three-bedroom houses, as well as 9 one-bed and 3 two-bed apartments. It was designed by architects Bowker Sadler and delivered in partnership with main contractor Willmott Dixon.

Profile 22 Approved Window Contractor Total Glass supplied Rochdale’s New Look Windows a Category A preferred supplier with Willmot Dixon and was awarded the contract to install the windows in the development. The company is a highly experienced commercial installer and Director Walter Lopacki said: “We carry out commercial contracts of varying sizes nationwide. We are the preferred choice of many contractors, including Willmott Dixon, because of our reputation for excellent service, high standards of workmanship and value for money.”

Profile 22’s Optima is rapidly becoming the commercial system of choice and Optima casement windows were specified for this project. The award winning windows deliver easy-to-maintain aesthetics, but, more importantly for this project, exceptional security and low U values.

Both New Look and Total Glass’s experience meant they were familiar with the challenges and opportunities of working on complex, multi-phase projects such as this one. Careful planning and meticulous attention to detail at every stage meant the fabrication and installation of the windows went smoothly from start to finish.
