Profile 22 supports award-winning flats refurbishment

Triple glazed PVC-u windows manufactured using the Profile 22 system and achieving a U-Value of 0.8 W/m²K, played their part in a major refurbishment for Merseyside-based One Vision Housing, a not-for-profit social housing provider with around 13,000 homes across Sefton, Liverpool and Wirral.

The work was for 96 units in eight blocks that make up Hornby Flats in Litherland, where the replacement windows were used alongside external wall insulation to reduce carbon emissions as well as residents’ heating costs. A mark of the success of the project, it gained a ‘Sustainable Project of the Year’ award for its re-use of existing buildings in the annual ‘Builder and Engineer Awards’.

With a total cost of £2.4million, the project received £1million of funding from REECH, (Renewables and Energy Efficiency in Community Housing) a project managed by Sefton Council and financed by the European Regional Development Fund, aimed at improving energy efficiency in some of the Liverpool City Region’s most deprived communities.

The 520 white casement windows and 120 PVC-U doors were made using the Profile 22 FS70 system by Walsall-based fabricator Select Windows, a company with extensive experience in commercial and social work as well as a member of the Profile 22 Approved Window Contractor scheme.
